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.

What a great day for a ride in Vero Beach, Florida!

Six years have passed and this one lone One Million Acts of Kindness sticker remains where someone placed it in Vero Beach. This busy parking lot has hundreds of cars exiting every day. Tens of thousands have seen this simple message over the years. I know it has made an impact!

MLK

Yesterday there was a wonderful parade to celebrate the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth. I rode the Kindness Bicycle in Gifford. What a great, last minute decision. Thousands of cheering attendees loved the message.
Earlier in the day, I talked with good friends from Vero Beach, Rodger and Denny. We worked on finding an appropriate acronym for school children about MLK. Here is our acronym.
M is the Roman numeral for 1,000
L is Lessons
K is Kindness
So, this wonderful man can now also be honored by schoolchildren by learning 1,000 lessons of kindness throughout their lives.

Pelican Marsh Elementary School and Sea Gate Elementary School invited me to have programs for their students on Collier County Kindness Awareness Day. It was such an honor to talk with over 1,700 students about  all the goodness they can spread in their lives. Parents and teachers alike were very interested in this annual event. A very big shout out to Stacey Dooney and Melissa Kahn for arranging visits at these schools.
Thanks to Susanna Tocco for arranging a visit to the Naples Children’s Museum
