A Great Day in London

Friday, May 30th, 2014

5-30-14 2

Today in my travels from Ealing to London and back again, I visited many popular spots in the center of London. Waves of people flooded some of the areas. The brightest spots of the day were the conversations. In today’s photo are Dave, Patrick and Simon. I was blessed to have a wonderful conversation with these three 8th graders and a couple of their friends about kindness in the UK spreading across the globe!

This is Going to be Amazing!!

The Global Kindness Tour is safe and sound in London.
After my lodging for the entire sixty-three days in London fell through when I arrived, the wonderful people at AtoB Hotel are letting me stay for very cheap at their boutique hotel and for free on Sundays.
Their £30 price includes a full breakfast every morning…unheard of in one of the the most expensive cities in the world.

London, England !

Early next week I will fly to London and visit that city for two months. I will ride the Kindness Bicycle, raising awareness for kindness, compassion, respect and gratitude.
Word of this mission is spreading across the globe and I wish to capitalize on it.
Bogart will remain in the states with family and friends. The Blue Bird of Kindness will be parked on a very busy road where it will get thousands of views per day.
Thank you to everyone who has made this trip a reality.

Winds of Change

The very caring, philanthropic women at Winds of Change in Chagrin Falls, Ohio had their annual fashion show today at 37 West Orange Street. What a beautiful evening and very generous attendees.
They had a fundraiser during the fashion show to benefit One Million Acts of Kindness.
Thank you to one and all.

Mayfield High school

The Blue Bird of Kindness was the perfect backdrop today for the Mayfield High School Excel Tecc year end celebration. Two hundred students, parents, educators,  faculty and administrators were on hand for the festivities.
Thank you to educators and friends, Rick Zivney, Mike Caldwell and Dave Hrudka for this annual invite. It was certainly a great way to spread word to the community.

Today we visited the 7th and 8th graders at Artemus Ward School in Cleveland, Ohio.
Over 100 students were very interested in my challenge to have them embrace kindness as a goal and find their passion to make a positive change in the world…it is possible!
Kindness always,
Bob Votruba and Bogart too!!
