The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is the heart of the kindness movement whose aim is to help everyone create a better world by spreading awareness and increasing engagement in kind actions.
Randomactsofkindness.org is a platform where media, education, community, social networking and entertainment connect people with inspiration, tools, resources, organizations and a larger support network to help them take action, get involved, harvest and share the benefits of kind actions in their daily lives and society. Randomactsofkindness.org is dedicated to providing users with dynamic means to teach, learn, collaborate, grow and communicate the kindness they care about in their unique ways.
All who join Randomactsofkindness.org can participate in and contribute to a thriving movement where members engaged in thinking, doing and sharing kindness are changing the world.
Established in 1995 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is a resource for people committed to spreading kindness. We provide a wide variety of materials on our website, including ideas for kind actions, ideas for educators and schools, activities and lesson plans, inspirational quotations, videos and workplace resources—all free of charge.
The Foundation is privately held and funded. We accept no donations, grants or membership dues. We do not provide financial assistance to individuals or organizations. The Foundation has no religious or organizational affiliations; we encourage the practice of kindness in all sectors of society.
The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is the United States delegate to the World Kindness Movement. People in participating nations promote kindness within their countries’ borders and are creating a global network of kindness and compassion.
As people from different cultures and from all walks of life join to spread kindness, they are creating a powerful, synergistic action throughout the world. Please join us in bringing kindness and compassion to our local and global communities!
