Other Kindness Movements

Friday, January 29th, 2010

There are so many people involved in various ways of spreading kindness and love on a daily basis, many have websites, some have blogs, and still others travel the country. Many different ways to convey the same message.  There aren’t enough of us. I am hearing from people across the country, wondering when I will be coming to their area. I wish it could be sooner, but I am just a guy with a dog traveling the country in a painted-up bus. I really do wish that I could get to all of you sooner. The need far exceeds the ability to be somewhere in person. The internet provides contact from me to you that I try to keep interesting for you, so you can keep track of our travels.

  Some of the others I mentioned earlier, are doing great work to promote a kindness movement in our world. It is well worth a visit to all of their websites. The links are provided below;                                                        

One Million Acts of Kindness Week is fast approaching, please register your school or group.

For Everyone

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

One size fits all. It is rare when something works for everyone. The further this world heads in the wrong direction the more people realize how much something needs to be done about it. I am convinced that the answer is kindness. Where is one to start? The world is so big and is moving in the wrong direction much too fast. The answer is within you and everyone you come in contact with, right in your very own backyard. Kindness is for everyone.

One Million Acts Of Kindness Week,  February 8-14, 2010

All Schools, Colleges, and Universities are welcomed and encouraged to take part in this very important week. Become a part of this growing movement.

One Million Acts Of Kindness is a goal. A goal for every individual to perform one million acts of kindness in their lives.

The ultimate goal of this week will be to convince students to pledge to perform one million acts of kindness in their lives. This could quite possibly be the greatest goal in every student’s life.

Kindness will change this world.

Our goal this year is for one hundred schools to take part in this week. Please help us reach our goal.

Family Kindness

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

familyEvery day brings a new level of excitement to The Kindness Bus Tour. So many people email and call to tell of how One Million Acts of Kindness has given them a fresh perspective on their lives. Originally, a message I intended for kids to embrace has now been embraced by people from all walks of life. The idea of an individual having a goal of performing one million acts of kindness in their life has struck a chord with thousands of people in a few short months of my travels. This movement is getting contagious. Kindness is contagious!! The most recent exciting news I have received was by a mother of a family. Excited at having a new goal for herself, something to better herself, she started on her journey of performing one million acts of kindness….then it happened….out of nowhere….it was time for a family meeting!! Moms know what is right for their families. This mom realized after a few days on the way to her goal. Out of the love in her heart for her family and knowing, how many persons she will have a positive influence on during her lifetime of kindness, she has now convinced everyone in her family to start on their own goals of one million acts of kindness. For me, few things are more exciting.

We are working on a goal of 100 schools participating in One Million Acts of Kindness Week

Across the Ponds

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

I love the internet. How did we survive without it? Blogs and social networks like Facebook are a great way to get a positive message to people. For me, one guy with a dog driving a bus across the country, it would be nearly impossible to spread my message by word of mouth alone. Once something reaches the internet, it can catch on quickly. The message can literally spread across the world. From England to Australia, there are several articles, which have been written of the message of One Million Acts of Kindness. Who knows what sort of worldwide effect this movement will have. I heard from someone in the Netherlands a couple of days ago who somehow found out about us. She is telling all of her friends. It is so amazing to me how easy it has become reach out to others throughout the world. If you have an idea, which can positively affect people, spend time on the internet promoting it. Watch how fast it spreads across the ponds.

Human Spirit

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

A tragedy has a way of bringing people together, strangers working with each other to help people in need. The Haitian people are showing the world their steadfast strength in a deplorable situation they are making the best of a situation which has an uncertain future. The Haitian people had very little before the earthquake, now they have even less. The human spirit of the Haitian people will not be extinguished. They are a loving people, who have been dealt more than their share of national tragedies in recent history.

Will This Be Your Starting Line?

Monday, January 18th, 2010

What would it take, for you to dedicate the rest of your life to a charity? Having a tragedy like the one in Haiti is inspiring millions of us to want to do something. Half of us say we will give money to help the cause. It is a much-needed resource, which will provide revenue to purchase necessary life saving essentials. Most of us are torn by not being to be able to do something first hand. Some of us will do something life changing about it. Most of us will not. It usually takes an event, a big event, for people to decide to dedicate their life to charity work. Will this be that event for you? What will you witness out of this tragedy that will reach your very core? The images and voices you witnessed on TV were those of a person crying out to you. Start that journey of living a life of doing for those in need today. This is your starting line.
