World Kindness USA ( Inviting Expressions of Interest )

Expressions of Interest are being invited to establish a Peak National Kindness body in the United States of America, “World Kindness USA”

In 2012 international strategies were commenced to encourage collaboration through supporting the creation of national kindness bodies to enable a greater reach and providing a united voice to better influence positive change.

World Kindness USA whilst maintaining its independence would be internationally endorsed allowing for all organisations to meet the KPIs (kindness Performance Indicators) regardless of their primary purpose to collaborate in sharing ideas, programs and strategies to place Kindness firmly on the national agenda .

    Kindness.org launched in October 2016 with the mission to inspire and educate people to choose kindness. We’re a small team who came together from London, New York, and beyond to answer the question: How would our world transform if each of us put kindness front and center in our lives? We’re a digital platform designed to reach across oceans and time zones to inspire small ripples of everyday compassion. We listen to our community, combining scientific curiosity with a willingness to nimbly put new ideas into practice. We believe that together, our ripples of kindness can create massive waves of change. We also believe that kindness transcends difference, and strive to be an inclusive, unbiased organization that is accessible by all.

    The campaign includes raising awareness about our mission and research, partnering with and supporting others who have similar campaign missions, and sharing ideas and experiences with those in the World Kindness Movement. More details about our organization can be found in our activities and goals described below: Kindness.org started our work in 2017 focused on these three goals:

    1. Study and understand the effects of kindness (in our very own kindlab)

    2. Scale into established communities and continue growing and connecting a global community .

    3. Continue to build ourselves as the trusted source for all things kindness
