One Happy Dog

Thursday, July 31st, 2014


Monica and John of London are the owners of Happy a Norfolk Terrier. I spent a few weeks caring for Happy while her owners were away.
It was a joy to have a dog in my life while away from Bogart. This nine month old has been trained by Monica and John to do all sorts of fun tricks, my favorite is when Monica says “shy” and Happy lays down and covers her eyes with her paws.
Thank you to this caring, young couple for helping in a very HUGE way to make my visit to London much easier.

One More Time

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014


I was so honored to be able to meet with the great team at the Kindness Offensive in London, that I had to go back one more time. They had had an outing the night previous which lasted well into the early morning hours. I arrived before they woke but found that seeing the Kindness Bicycle on their front porch made for a beautiful photo. Our missions have a good deal of overlap and we will be in touch over the long haul. I can’t wait to return, three years from now.

With a broken leg and all, Dylan from Crouch End, London, still took the time to talk with the “man on the cool bike!”
Thank you Dylan.

Crouch End, London

Sunday, July 27th, 2014


Visiting north London has been one of my favorite stopping off points during my stay in the UK. Crouch End is one of those places. The neighborhoods bustle with all sorts of wonderful people. The Nicholson family has been a huge help during my stays here.
Thank you Jonathan, Chris, Imogen and Flora for your huge acts of kindness and generosity.

The Kindness Offensive

Saturday, July 26th, 2014
The Kindness Offensive is a UK charity that brings together large groups to accomplish major acts of kindness.
I had the honor to spend a 24 hour chunk of time with this very busy group of young men who have decided to give their lives to make our world a better place.

The words on their website sum up perfectly, what their objective is:

Our aims are to have fun, be kind and inspire as many people as possible to do the same. Performing both small and large-scale Random Acts of Kindness is what we do.

It’s a great privilege to be able to work together with so many kind volunteers, companies and charities to make so many people happy.

Thank you to, David, Rob, James, James and James for making me their guest of honor and for presenting me with a kindnessOffensive gold medal for service.

London Skatepark

Friday, July 25th, 2014


Suliaman and Sam along with a much larger contingency of boarders stopped doing their ariels, at this north London park to find out about the Kindness Bicycle. There has been a big interest amongst teens all across London in these messages. The need for them is the same across the globe.
