“Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”




Pine Ridge Middle School

Bogart filled the auditorium to standing room only at Pine Ridge Middle School today. This message of kindness to middle school students is so important. Because of testing and curriculum, it is harder and harder to get into the middle upper schoolers across the country. It’s a shame because this is truly the age group who could use a reminder of having core values in their lives. Thank you to everyone who made this visit a reality.

Pelican Marsh Elementary School

Collier County schools could quite possibly be the center of kindness in the universe. Pelican Marsh Elementary school amazes me year after year with everything they do to create an incredibly kind campus. Bogart always leaves this campus with a smile on his face.

Pinecrest Elementary School

72 students from Pinecrest Elementary School in Immokalee, Florida were treated to three Kindness programs today. The interest was at fever pitch, especially with Bogart in the room. I love visiting the elementary schools in Collier County especially during their week of kindness activities.

Everglades City School

I love visiting schools during Collier County Kindness Awareness Week. It affords me the opportunity to see what the children, teachers and schools as a whole are doing to promote kindness in their community.
This pre-K through 12th grade school could not have been any more kind. The students asked all sorts of wonderful questions and loved walking around the bus after the morning programs. Bogart, of course, once again was the star of the show.


Forty Plus Years

I love running into people I haven’t seen in forty-plus years and being able to pick up with the conversation like you had seen them just yesterday. Such was the case recently in Naples, Florida. The Kindness Bus Tour has a unique way of bringing people together.
