The Friendly Upper West Side, NYC

June 27th, 2010

6-27-10Block by block there are neighborhoods of individuals, couples and families on The Upper West Side who have opened their hearts to The Kindness Bus Tour. Faces of people who have seen Bogart taking me for a walk throughout their neighborhoods, now have names and stories they want to share about their stories of kindness. Many of them have opened their homes as an offer of hospitality to the traveling Kindness Bus Tour.
The Kindness Bus magically found it’s way to the two most sought after parking spots near The Dakota both Saturday and Sunday. I talked with hundreds of people from across the globe about my mission. Bogart and I started a new means of connection with people we met today. On the homepage of my website, there is a link to download a One Million Acts Of Kindness certificate pledge. I did so, and made 100 copies to take with me to the Imagine Mosaic. There, people took a pledge, as they wrote their names on their personal copy to take with them to hang in a prominent location of their home or office as a constant reminder of their lifetime goal of One Million Acts Of Kindness.
We have a few more days in Manhattan and will give a talk at Fordham Prep in the Bronx and visit the remaining firehouses here.
I am thankful, beyond words, for all the wonderful kind acts bestowed upon The Kindness Bus Tour, by new-found kind souls.
