Impact Martial Arts

Saturday, February 20th, 2016


Today I was invited to talk with 20 or so children who were taking lessons in learning how to stop bullying. Alex Timin, owner of Impact Martial Arts teaches a great class to his students. This is my second time visiting his facility for this event. The students were treated to a puppet show about putting an end to bullying. It was very well received.

Bullying Bicycle

Thursday, February 18th, 2016


I changed out the signs on the Kindness Bicycle once again to address bullying across our nation.
These signs have a very big impact on people who take the time to read them and by doing so, helps those who are being bullied to feel better about themselves. I love involving myself in conversation with those who seem to need someone to talk with. Words can certainly have a very curing effect.

Kindness for Our Pets

The Animal Specialty Hospital had me and Bogart come and visit their facility. This group of very kind individuals wanted to further their comfort of individuals who bring their cherished pets in for surgery.
This shows how important kindness is in a workplace environment.

This past week was the 7th annual One Million Acts of Kindness Week. Each and every year participation in this week grows. From elementary schools to corporations, children and adults take part in giving back to their community with kind acts. What a great way to grow kindness around the world.

A Kindness Bus Love Story

Sunday, February 14th, 2016


Nicole and Jacob were on their first date a few years ago when they saw the Kindness Bus. They took it as a beautiful omen. Today, Nicole caught up with me and told me that they are now married and live their lives by the words on the bus and share those words with their infant son, Nova.
What a wonderful Kindness Bus love story.

K.I.D.S. Campaign

Christine Hanlon is the founder of K.I.D.S. Campaign which has a dual mission: first, to instill kindness through sponsored community service activities; and second, to share love with pediatric cancer families by easing their burdens and celebrating their joy.
This wonderful group of children and adults is a big part of what One Million Acts of Kindness Week is all about.


After School Group

Friday, February 12th, 2016


What a great invite it was to meet with the students at Lake Park Elementary school as they left school for the day over a long weekend. Many of the children’s parents were there to walk with them, drive them or ride bicycles with them back to their homes. It was great getting “high fives” from nearly every child and wonderful to have conversations with the parents and children together.
