Kindness Matters…or does it?

Kindness Matters…or does it?

To be kind … or not to be kind?  That is the question!

Everyday, we encounter countless opportunities to be a good example for others. Perhaps, you do random acts of kindness:

  • Let people ahead of you in the grocery line
  • Smile at strangers
  • Pay someone’s toll going over the bridge or pay road

There is value in treating family with the same patience and support as you would a stranger!

  • Wait patiently while your daughter fixes her hair…again
  • Answer your husband or wife’s phone call using a loving tone
  • Call your parents or grandparents just to see how they are doing

Do you extend this same level of consideration to your colleagues at work? Or is there more competition than collaboration?

"The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people."

— Theodore Roosevelt

What if there was one day a year devoted to KINDNESS?396777_10150946396536268_1428635895_n


Could you be kind for one entire day to EVERYONE? I challenge you to join THE GREAT KINDNESS CHALLENGE on August 9th, 2014!



Enjoy AUGUST 9th, 2014 with family and friends doing kind gestures for others.

It’s a scavenger hunt but in reverse. What can you do for others? Rather than what can others do for you!

It’s easy. It’s fun. It’s free.

Download the checklist with suggestions or come up with your own grand gestures. Available in 10 languages!

Last year, after completing 26 items on the list with my six year old daughter, we were exhilarated. We wanted to do it all over again. It started the school year off with a bang!  She took the kindness challenge to heart and continued to do kind deeds all year long-picking up trash, consoling a crying child, giving mommy a hug and more! I couldn’t be more proud of this YOUNG CHAMPION OF KINDNESS!

It’s time to join The Great Kindness Challenge.

Take pictures of you and your sign “Kindness Matters!” Post them on The Great Kindness Challenge FACEBOOK PAGE

Thank you!
