Here’s what we ask of you – send just one piece of kindness out into the world. Don’t overthink it. Make it personal, make it performance-based. Give it to your family, friends, colleagues or even strangers. Let’s build up positivity + connection during this stressful time of year.

For every kindness posted below, we’ll donate $20 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
Post as many kindnesses as you share – there’s no limit. We want a feed full of kindness. We hope it brings joy + possible ideas on how to incorporate kindness in daily life past this campaign.
