#220 High on kindness

A red balloon is the perfect symbol for The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. It’s like a joyous spirit floating above anyone whose life is touched by an unexpected offering of love.

The foundation has been around since 1995. That’s more than 15 years of inspiration. A wander around the Web site brings you to a database of over 200 kindness ideas and a place to add your own.  The news page gathers kindness stories from media. People contribute their stories on the site or the Facebook page.

You can read kindness blogs or find lesson plans to encourage classroom kindness. Or follow on Twitter for kindness ideas, quotes, and stories.

There are so many ways to put sunshine into even the greyest days, and this site has enough ideas to keep those red balloons bobbing over spirits made lighter by random acts of kindness.


Change your world with hope


Be like the bee. They pick up bits of pollen and spread them around, all the while creating honey, pollinating flowers and ensuring the future of life on the planet. When you share these stories, you pollinate hope.
