GROW KINDNESS

lettuce

This resource list will grow as we accumulate favorite books, stories, films, interviews, blogs and podcasts to inspire our #KindInKind community for this year’s quest: Spread one act of kindness every single day. 

The list is organized by each day’s Kindness Calendar Quest first. At the bottom, you’ll find research and resources for all types of kindness.

Please share your favorite resources and I’ll add them.
