Christopher’s Angels was created by Alexander Sims in the spirit of his twin brother Christopher, who died by suicide in 2014 at the age of 14.

In his short life, with many accomplishments and many friends, Christopher believed that kindness can change the world and make it a better place. He was kind to people and animals and believed every person offered a unique contribution to our world!

Subscribers to our program participate in and promote Christopher’s Angels’ Random Good Deeds and Kindness Days on the 22nd day of each month.  Small deeds like saying “hello” to a stranger, holding the door open for someone behind you, asking to join someone who is eating alone or helping someone with their books, bags, etc., can inspire others to follow.  Other deeds like speaking out against a bully can save a life and create more heroes to do the same!

Cub RT: Service Projects and Uniforms
A good service project is the foundation for helping boys become good citizens and teaches them the value of service to others. It teaches empathy: an awareness that others are suffering, to look at the issue from their perspective and wish to ease their pain, moving beyond sadness and pity to aspire change.  Click here for details.
