We come to work everyday because we want to make the world a better place. We believe that kindness is the key to making that happen – and we work day and night (literally, we’re always online) to fulfill this mission. 

We know that you’re tired of all the negativity in the news, frustrated by the politics, sad to hear about all the pain and suffering out there. Believe us, we know. But there is a huge amount of good in this world… if we’d just take the time to notice it. That’s why we exist. To remind you of that good. To show you that love is the strongest emotion in our hearts and that kindness is the antidote to all the bad stuff. 

Through The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, you’ll find things to fill your soul up and help you remember that the world is actually pretty amazing. If you just need a momentary ‘pick me up’, check out our inspirational quotes section or head on over to the Kindness Ideas page. If you want to find out about incredible people, take a look at Kindness Stories. Are you a teacher, parent or youth leader? We have a plethora of resources including a free curriculum for kindergarten through high school, kindness clubs, posters and project ideas. Feel like having a good cry? Watch one of our videos… but don’t forget to have a box of tissues handy. You’ll need them. 

All this is to say that we’re here for you. We want your life to be full of joy, love and kindness. Not an easy task, but one we’re ready to take on. Join us.
