We are a nonprofit organization that aspires to normalize kindness in our culture, and create a community around this ideal. We envision a world where kind words and gestures between strangers are as commonplace as a handshake. Our hope is to instill in others the realization that kindness costs you nothing, but can be worth everything to someone else. A kind word, at the right time, holds the potential to uplift someone’s day, shift their perspective and even change their life. With every person you encounter there is an opportunity to reach through the barriers which isolate us, touch them with your positivity, and show them that we are all truly connected.
Our flagship project is Kindness Cards - small cards with art on one side and kind words handwritten on the other. We give out these cards as an organization and in our personal lives. Our main goal, however, is to help other people start spreading kindness more intentionally in their own lives.
We provide pre-made blank Kindness Cards, which are ready to be written out, on a pay-what-you-can basis. We also have a ton of advice to help guide you through the social activity of handing these cards to friends, family, and even strangers (friends not yet made). We even have a list of example phrases to help get you started. Kindness Cards are a simple, but effective, way to spread kindness on a regular basis; and we have found this can be extraordinarily powerful. It not only uplifts the people around you, but it will enrich your life in ways you may be unable to imagine.
We also host kindness spreading events - including free hugs campaigns, conversation cafes (where anyone can come and connect with each other), and Kindness Card booths at local music events and music festivals.
