One of the most inspiring aspects of what I do is because of the global reach of One Million Acts of Kindness.
“Spring Into Kindness” day, “One Million Acts of Kindness Week” and “One Million Acts of Kindness Day” are annual events which have the world taking part. A letter I received, edited for brevity, is below:
At my school, American International School- Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, we are participating in our first ever Kindness week! It is a school-wide initiative and our very own “Secret Service Group” made up of 3-5th graders. I can’t wait to have our school be part of this wonderful initiative.
The 3rd annual “Spring Into Kindness” day was a success once again. Individuals interacting in kind ways with those they normally don’t, is what this day is all about. Thank you to everyone who took part and please spread word of this event to as many as you can.
Hats off to Spring de Haviland, co-founder of this event, for her tireless dedication…and even handing out carnations throughout southern California
I really enjoy being on the morning news in schools, it lets the kids know that Bogart will be visiting their classrooms, getting them prepared for our presentation.
Principal, Dr. Westberry and school Counselor, Leanne Hope were my guides as I presented a program, one classroom at a time at this school. I love this format, talking to small groups. It seems to have the biggest impact and a more personal connection with everyone. This school is doing a great job creating a culture of kindness on campus. The students, educators and staff are working as one collective family as a continual mind set. It was a pleasure to visit once again.
Some people take the act of helping others to an amazing level. Lauren is one such person. I recently visited her class in Naples to talk the yoga students. It is always a great way to connect with the local community. Lauren hosted this free class and had me bring Blue Bird by for all to see.
Local musician, Devon Meyers played beautiful music to help in creating this three-way karmic event.
Visit www.naplesyogacenter.com to learn of Lauren’s kind heart.
Whenever I can have a captive audience of 30,000 people view “Blue Bird” and all of its important messages, I am going to seize the opportunity.
The Saint Patrick’s Day parade in Naples was just the event.
Thank you to Mary, Ashley, Elana and Alex for handing out flyers, rolling the Kindness Bicycle along and carrying Bogart…yes, carrying Bogart along the parade route. They also got the crowd cheering along the entire parade route. What a great day to spread kindness.
