Everyday Kindness

We all know the ripple effect of kindness in our schools. Kindness in the classroom creates rich learning environments for students, influences their families and shapes tomorrow’s communities as kids grow into adults. We’ve seen the proof: when the City of Anaheim logged a million acts of kindness across its schools, incidents of bullying and suspensions went down while school spirit went up – an achievement celebrated by the Dalai Lama himself.

In early 2016, we will be launching the “Everyday Kindness” campaign that will aim to provide communities with a turn-key program to not just raise awareness of everyday acts of kindness but to inspire action. Not just for a week or a month or year, but over the long-term. And not just a million - maybe a billion or more.



Kindness produces a natural high, often referred to as "Helper's High."


Acts of kindness often produce the hormone oxytocin in the brain and throughout the body. Oxytocin is known as a "cardio-protective" hormone because it protects the heart (by lowering blood pressure).



When we're kind, we inspire others to be kind, and it actually creates a ripple effect that spreads outwards to our friends' friends' friends -- to three degrees of separation.
