I received a Kindness Project and am curious to know what it's all about.

I heard about The Kindness Projects and want to know more about sharing.

If neither of these statements is true, then just pretend that you heard about The Kindness Projects and want to know more about sharing.  Now start over at the top.  Easy Peasy!!

How it Started...

The idea for The Kindness Projects came to me when I realized that even though I was creating a ton of Cards, Treat Bags, Boxes, etc. they never got to be used for their intended purposes. Obviously I wasn't going to create a Thank You card & mail it to myself but in a way that's exactly what I was doing.
Creating & hoarding my creations. So this got me thinking & I shared the idea of making "Kindness Projects" at one of my classes & everyone seemed to like the premise. So at the next class  we created some projects with the sole purpose of giving them away -Just Because- no birthdays or holidays needed to be coming up for us to share something with a friend, co worker, neighbor, or a complete stranger!

Bake up a batch of cookies to deliver to a senior center or the company next door to yours, give a thank you card to an airline stewardess or hotel staff, leave an embellished gift card for a waitress, make up a few cute candy bags for the staff at your doctors office.
I could go on & on but the bottom line is there are some many ways we can do a little something for those around us!

Don't forget to get your kids involved...
Recently my kids wanted a super ball from one of those quarter machines & after they got it I had them go put more quarters in the machine for the next kid that came along. Its not much but it was probably fun to find that surprise!

Well I hope you are encouraged to start seeking out opportunities to spread some kindness in your community!

There will be a logo print out available & we ask that you add it to your "Kindness Projects".
This way people can find out what we are all about & hopefully be inspired to join us on our mission!

If you have given or received a "Kindness Project" we would love for you to share your stories here or on our Facebook page!
