Kindness Yields Forever

June 6th, 2010

6-6-10Strawberry Fields was the perfect place for The Kindness Bus to land for a few hours this very hot Sunday afternoon. What a sight we must have been for the Upper West Side. We creatively parked on W72nd just feet from Central Park West. One of the most photographed buildings in Manhattan, The Dakota, had serious competition from The Kindness Bus, as avid shutterbugs snapped as many pictures as I have ever seen taken. I must have been asked several times if we had any affiliations with the building. I guess kindness and The Dakota’s most famous tenant had a few things in common, the bus even has the saying “All we are saying, is give kindness a chance” written on it’s side.
I must have talked with people from twenty different countries during my brief stay near Central Park this afternoon. It’s places like this, that One Million Acts Of Kindness has a great chance of spreading across the globe. This short stay in the city proves one thing, New York City is ready to embrace this kindness movement with open arms. We will be back in NYC, in about ten days, for an extended stay.
It’s off to Long Island for the next three days, with the hopes of inspiring kids in a lower school with a big interest in kindness.
