Meet Peyton Verhoeven
Peyton believes that kindness has the power to change the world… one small act at a time. It is this belief that has led her to create Project Be Kind, a non-profit organization with a mission to inspire others to embrace kindness and make it a mindset.
Throughout the year, the organization engages the community to participate in challenges and use the project’s platform to spotlight acts of kindness.
From a young age, Peyton has been an active supporter of social causes including the Terry Fox Foundation, the Grassy Narrows water project and other charities. During the pandemic, she launched a club designed to help grade nine students meet new friends and form stronger connections, virtually.
The 17-year-old is currently spreading birthday magic to children living in homeless shelters in Toronto.
As one of Canada’s first Gen Z thought leaders, she believes her generation has the ability to be powerful changemakers especially when fuelled by kindness.
