1 Million Acts of Kindness

10 Apr 2015 by Kaysey Pietrzykowsky, No Comments »

The healthy snack company, Kind, has been supporting acts of kindness. Starting in 2011, Kind has started the “Kind Movement” which tracks and promotes acts of kindness. Some acts that Kind has tracked were delivering coats to homeless people, shoveling strangers’ driveways during snowstorms and creating care packages for soldiers overseas. Recently, the company has hit 1 million acts of kindness. Ironically, March 19, a day before the International Day of Happiness.

The company also has a “Kind Causes” program. People submit causes they care about to the company’s website every month. People then vote which cause deserves $10,000 from Kind. The cause with the most votes receives the money.

Kind’s founder, Daniel Lubetzky, wrote in his book, “Do the Kind Thing”, that he didn’t expect that it would get this big. “In the beginning, we would do unexpected kind acts for people, like carrying their groceries or holding umbrellas over them as they walked in the rain, but the light bulb came on when we realized that our community could be challenged to join us in our journey … Soon after, we made them the protagonists and started seeking more creative ways to energize people to do good.”

Hopefully, this “Kind Movement” will keep growing!
