An 8 year ride for kids

Put an end to Bullying & Adolescent Suicide

In year 3 of this mission, I introduced a bicycle ride to my travels to raise
awareness about issues kids are having to deal with at far too young an age.
Bullying and Adolescent Suicide are two of these challenging burdens most kids
will unfairly have to overcome throughout the remainder of their lives. At rides
end we will have ridden enough miles to traveled the perimeter of the earth, twice.
My mission on this ride has but one focus: To save kids lives.

This past weekend, I was the guest speaker for the final meeting of the Youth412 group from northeast Ohio. These middle school and high school students get together to celebrate all the goodness they can spread around the world throughout the their lives. Thank you for the invite. It was such a special evening.

Hessler Street Gathering

I love this festival for the diverse culture that is representative of northeast Ohio. Old, young, black white, catholic, atheist and Jew were all here today. Kindness is a message for everyone. There were even some who seemed to need it more, to heal the hurt in in their hearts.

It is always a special time seeing friends while traveling across the country. This was certainly one of those times.

Hopkins Elementary

Today Bogart and I visited 528 students at Hopkins Elementary School. These K-8 students were excited to learn about the Kindness Bus Tour. Our daylong visit included 12 twenty minute programs. It was such a joy to talk to kids about kindness, respect, compassion and gratitude. The message was very well received.
Thank you to the faculty and staff for arranging this visit to your wonderful school.

The 5th annual One Million Acts of Kindness Day is in the books. Thank you to everyone who participated. This fun event takes place every year on April 27th. Doing as many kind acts as you possibly can during the course of the day challenges you to be kind all day long. It really is a fun way to celebrate…being kind all the time.
