STEP 1: TAKE THE PLEDGE

I BELIEVE IN A WORLD...

Where we all pay it forward
Where we look out for each other
Where we focus on what unites us, rather than what divides us
Where kindness is the philosophy of life

IN A WORLD WHERE I CAN BE ANYTHING...

I pledge to be kind, to be the reason someone smiles today, and to be the change I wish to see.

I pledge to #CaptureKindness and share moments of compassion, love, and generosity from World Kindness Day, Nov 13th to Random Acts of Kindness Day, February 17th.

IN A WORLD WHERE I CAN STAND FOR ANYTHING...

I stand for kindness.
