The Kindness Challenge

Since the start of the pandemic, attacks on the Asian-American community have increased. Why? Some point to the fact that former President Trump called the novel coronavirus, the "China virus" and "kung flu," which incorrectly labeled and linked the spread of the virus to the Asian community. The result? A growing number of hate crimes aimed at Asian-Americans. What do you think we can do as a community to stop the spread of hate? At Xyza, we believe that human kindness is extremely powerful and that a kind world is a better world. So, we challenge you, our young readers, to spread kindness. We also challenge you to take the time to learn about people who are different from yourself. Information is key. Different is interesting. Kindness is powerful. Are you up for the kindness challenge? Share your thoughts on: 1) How we can spread more kindness and stop the spread of hate. 2) What people should know about you that makes you unique and different. We will compile your responses and share them with the Xyza community.

A Year Of COVID

Last March, cities around the world began enforcing lockdowns to try and fight the spread of COVID-19. It's been a truly unique and memorable year—both difficult and, at times, hopeful. What did your year of COVID-19 look like? We're asking readers to share a captioned photo that summarizes their year of COVID-19. Feel free to share multiple photos. We'll be compiling these photos and including them in a "Looking Back/Looking Forward" feature.
