Viral Impact

November 5th, 2011

11-5-11 AJust like The Kindness Bus having a huge following, the message of The Kindness Bicycle is starting to 11-5-11spread virally. If a message or an idea is liked, especially by teens and young adults, because of social networking, the message has a chance of spreading globally. That is my wish for One Million Acts Of Kindness and the messages on The Kindness Bicycle.
Whenever I take a break from my daily ride, I try to lock The Kindness Bicycle in an area of high visibility. Yesterday, unbeknownst to me, I locked it near a high school which let out for the day, while I sat in a coffee shop and kept a watchful eye on it. I watched as a steady stream of hundreds of students walked by and took note of its signs. In the 45 minutes or so that I watched, at least 100 pictures were taken with camera phones. Watching, and trying to read the body language, it was easy to see that this generation wants no part of Domestic Violence or Childhood Sexual Abuse.
Today my ride began at a Health Fair which was sponsored by a local hospital. My ride was through the more densely populated regions of Fremont, to get as many views as possible. I’m hoping the word of this mission spreads globally.
