One Million Acts Of Kindness is a goal. A goal for each person to individually perform One Million Acts Of Kindness in their life. Can you imagine a greater goal for one’s life? It is a constant mind-set of kindness every day of your life for the next fifty-five years. Doing for others and kindness in your heart for everyone. It is my wish that you will dedicate your life to a charity… finding the passion in your heart for something or someone in need.
As a father of three college age kids I am concerned for the world in which all kids will live. A great way to create a safer, more caring world is for everyone to start their lifetime goal of One Million Acts Of Kindness. So I bought a bus, had about sixty family members, friends and neighbors help paint it and began a ten year journey with my Boston Terrier, Bogart, to college campuses across the country hoping to convince as many of you as possible about this much needed movement for this world. I love you guys too much to sit back and not do anything about this. Let’s start a kindness movement in this country today to change the direction this world is headed!! You are the change that this world needs.
We are trying to offer inspiration to those wanting to better themselves by leading a lifetime of constantly spreading kindness to others.
Our goal is to reach out to children, teens, and young adults when their minds are open and their personalities are developing. We hope to teach them kindness, empathy and a generosity for others. By living in kindness they will discover the happiness that they can bring to those around them, and ultimately to themselves as well. It is crucial to recognize the importance of being kind to others; adults and teenagers can set the example for young children to emulate. Nothing could be more important in the world than this.
If you hear something often enough, you start to believe it. The world today so often adversely affects children. Some of them may even start to believe they are part of a deteriorating culture awash with greed, mass consumerism, and low self esteem…..they are not!
We work with educators to create a curriculum for school children K through 12. Educators can then create specific programs for teaching kindness in the classroom with the emphasis on incorporating it into everyday life.
We need to remind the younger generation that they are good and let them know they are part of something new, something bright, something bold… a beginning. They are the start of a new generation, they need to start believing they are part of THE KINDNESS GENERATION!
Most of us think that changing the world is impossible. The world is too big…too many people in it…too many problems to solve. Do you often feel this way? While it’s understandable, be assured that it is not true!
Let’s start smaller. How many kind thoughts of others can you have in a day? How many people can you encourage? How many people can you help in small way? Now we’re onto something…
Imagine… if we simply hoped for the best toward every person we come in contact with during the day. If each one of us, day by day, shared acts of kindness with those we know and those we don’t know…how would the world change? How would YOU change? How far would our kindness spread?
Start with your own world and your own circle of influence. Your friends, family, and community. Start now. Continuously let kindness be the cause you support and watch it grow into a better future!
