Today like never before, our children are challenged with incredible amounts of stress and distractions impacting their ability to learn, achieve success and happiness in school and in life. Our children, especially those at risk, need tools and strategies to help them emotionally regulate, reduce their stress, gain perspective, build empathy and resilience, while experiencing the joy of learning.

Our children represent 25% of the current population but 100% of our future. A happy child is a child who can learn. I hope you will join me in creating a better world for our children.

With love, Goldie

We often focus on how our gifts can help those in need. But the act of giving actually improves our own lives as well. In The Giving Way to Happiness, featuring The Hawn Foundation founder Goldie Hawn and her personal philanthropy journey, author Jenny Santi overturns conventional thinking about what it takes to be happy by revealing how giving to others - whether in the form of money, expertise, time, or love - has helped people from all walks of life find purpose and joy. Featuring Goldie's experiences, from starting The Hawn Foundation to writing 10 Mindful Minutes and beyond, the book draws on the wisdom of great thinkers past and present, as well as cutting-edge scientific research. Santi makes an eloquent and passionate case that oftentimes the answers to the problems that haunt us, and the key to the happiness that eludes us, lie in helping those around us.

MindUP™ was created through a collaboration of neuroscientists, positive psychologists and educators
to create the evidence-based training program for teachers and children called MindUP™.
Based in neuroscience, mindfulness and positive psychology, MindUP™ teaches children greater
emotional self-control, resiliency and helps develop better decision-making skills. MindUP™ teaches kids about their brain, their most powerful tool and how to reduce stress.
In 15 lessons, MindUP™ provides training for complex problem solving skills and building greater concentration. The end result – children are able to engage in learning, becoming less reactive and more focused in school.
