Hello, I'm Helpful Hemi!

I want you to help others and make the world a better place!
There are plenty of people you can help—at home or at school, in your neighbourhood or community. 

Helping others is good because:

  • It makes you feel good too!
  • It helps the person you’re helping to have a good day
  • It produces endorphins, your brain's natural painkiller!
  • It reduces anxiety and makes you calmer
  • Helping others increases your energy
  • It makes you more aware of other people, and puts you in their shoes
  • Everyone likes helpful people!
  • It puts more kindness out into the world
