The Kindness Project

It doesn't have to be a random act.

Too often kindness is relegated to a random act performed only when we’re feeling good. But an even greater kindness (to ourselves and others) occurs when we reach out even when we aren't feeling entirely whole. It’s not easy, and no one is perfect. But we’ve decided it’s not impossible to brighten the world one smile, one kind word, one blog post at a time. To that end, a few of us writers have established The Kindness Project, starting with a series of inspirational posts.

December 23, 2010 I made a commitment to embrace a new way of living--a life of radical kindness. Not just random acts of kindness, but kindness that remained a constant, fully conscious choice for me. (I blogged about it to make the commitment stick.) It hasn't been easy, and I fail constantly. But my desire to stay true to this commitment usually gets me back on track (eventually). A year and a half later, I finally had the guts to take this commitment to another level. So The Kindness Project was born. Because kindness is best when shared and shared and shared. I hope you'll join us.

  1. Hi Carol!
    I read about this on a blog called That's Right and I'd love to participate! It's been a goal of mine, to be more kind to people (I even wrote a post on it a while back ( so this is absolutely perfect for me to document things. Do you have to sign up somewhere, or can I just grab a button and post about it?

    Thank you so much!
