Since 2007, The Kindness Center has been creating events to promote the social, emotional, and global benefits of spontaneous and intentional acts of kindness. This page highlights some of the projects TKC has participated in over the years. Our hope is that something here will inspire you to become a part of the kindness revolution. The opportunities to do good are endless. Help a neighbor. Serve at a local shelter. Compliment people who give extraordinary service. Express heartfelt gratitude toward your family and friends. Practice the art of patience. Buy a stranger a cup of coffee when in line at your favorite cafe. Power down your phone and sincerely listen to the person in front of you. For every act of love brings us closer to a brighter and more civilized future. By working together, we can open hearts, heal lives, and ultimately...change the world.
