A CALL TO BE KIND

ABOUT THE "BE KIND" CAMPAIGN

In a world of political polarization and divisive issues, we believe there is another way - a way to more peace and goodness in our community and our world. We hope you'll BE part of this movement to make Michiana and our world more loving and more KIND. 

A WAY OF LIFE

FOUNDATIONS FOR KINDNESS

 

‘The World Happiness Report’, a project undertaken by the United Nations, has shown that even more than economic factors, happiness and life satisfaction are facilitated by factors such as trust and social support, which are themselves manifestations of kindness. It should come as no surprise to us that kinder societies are happier societies; it may, however, be surprising to some to know that kindness is even more important than wealth.

"We have all heard the saying 'it’s better to give than to receive.' Studies have shown that acts of kindness not only help the recipient, but also increase the health and happiness of the giver."

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

― Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom

 

“It seems to me that no matter what religion you subscribe to, acts of kindness are the stepping stones to making the world a better place — because we become better people in it.”

— Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart

“I have found that it is the small everyday deed of ordinary folks that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
