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.

Kindness Bookends

September 30th, 2015


One of my favorite stops as I travel down the coast of Florida is at friend Mark’s house. He always loves the fact that I stop by and arranges for some friends to visit during my overnight stay. Thank you to Rick and Ramona for making the trip to further learn of my mission. Great stories, great feast and some great donations to help get us a little further down the road.

Nearing the end of September which is National Suicide Prevention month, the following is very fitting.

Project Semicolon, the brainchild of Amy Bleuel, has a simple but profound concept. The semicolon is a pause, not a stop. She hopes the tattoo will “start a conversation that can’t be stopped about mental illness, suicide, addiction, depression and self-injury.”

Get Kids Involved in Sports

September 26th, 2015


I arrived in Vero Beach with the news of two students being caught with loaded guns at the Freshman Learning Center. Thanks to quick acting police, students and administrators, a possible tragedy was averted.
When students are involved in activities such as sports, charitable work and academics, there is much less time for this sort of behavior. Thank you to these lacrosse players from Vero Beach for the interest in One Million Acts of Kindness


Buist Academy

September 24th, 2015


The Buist Academy in Charleston, SC is directly across the street from the Emanuel AME church where 9 parishioners lost their lives to a gunman. When talking to the first graders you help them understand how important it is to help others and never hurt or harm anyone. I always give examples of how it feels good when you help someone. I also use Bogart as an example of how important it is to always be nice to him. The children really connect with that.

James Island Charter School

The “Keep it Kind” Group at the James Island Charter School is doing wonderful acts of kindness throughout the Charleston community. Thank you to all of them

Peter, Paul and Mary

September 20th, 2015

Peter Yarrow’s friend stopped by the Kindness Bus to take many photos and have some fun conversation. It turns out that Peter wanted to tour the country promoting kindness. His friend said that if Peter were to have a bus this would be the kind of bus.
