Share a Smile. Brighten Someone's Day.

Be Kind

The Gift of Kindness shares many meanings to many different people. A simple smile or something more dramatic can have the same positive effect. What matters most is taking the time to do something good for someone else, not for the purpose of a self gratifying response from them but because it is the right thing to do.

Kindness is to do onto others as you would have done to you.Tweet That

Try it. You’ll find that the benefit far outweighs the effort. You will get back 10x more than what you put in! This we can say without a doubt as research has proven that by practicing kindness toward your fellow man, YOU will actually benefit more than the recipient. Kind people have been found to be more thankful, less stressed, and overall leading healthier lives.

Who is Behind

This site was started by a husband and wife team as a simple idea to help make the world a better place by encouraging Intentional Acts of Kindness. What started small has now grown into a movement of people all around the world who are living out the Golden Rule, doing unto others as they’d have done to themselves, and inspiring others to do the same.

You make it easy to spread kindness and I know you must be richly rewarded. You are AWESOME! – Lori, Oklahoma City

I think people forget about being kind to each other. They don’t seem to forget the hurricane victims–but when they get in their cars, they become different people! How about some bumper stickers to remind drivers to be kind to each other on the road! Thanks for the great site! – Lois
