"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
--Mahatma Gandhi

How We Got Here19238 Participants!

Last year, we did a small experiment: 21-day kindness challenge. We informally put the word out, and thousands joined in. Inspired that by experience, we put on a gratitude challenge and 12 thousand people from 119 countries participated. All that left us wondering -- what do we do next?!?

So, we've now launched this practices portal. Instead of doing bigger challenges, we thought we'd start doing many -- but smaller -- challenges in parallel. You can get a local group of your friends, or colleagues or family friends or just about anyone, and host your own challenge. You can, of course, join an existing challenge too but our hope is to spawn loads of challenges where people are practicing being the change.

Science Agrees too!

  • Happiness Dividends: Shawn Achor says, "the single greatest advantage in the modern economy is a happy and engaged workforce."

  • Small Acts, Big Change: In this Ted Talk, BJ Fogg speaks about changing behavior: "What if someone told you to floss only one tooth everyday? Or start the new year, not with grand resolutions, but with a simple challenge?"

  • Science of Generosity: When you help others, it has a network effect and affects many others downstream!

More Inspiration

After each of our challenges, we've had the privilege of having a collective video -- which has spread even more ripples of goodness. Below is the first 'Being Kind' video, and after that 'Grateful'. Enjoy!

Why 21 days?

Small, consistent actions over 21 day programs can create a cascade of personal, organization and community wellbeing. We provide the tools to nurture that inner transformation.

How do I start?

You can either join an existing challenge, and get a group of your friends and family to create your own. We will provide all the tools and resources you might need.

Who is KindSpring?

We are all volunteers. Someone helped us in the past, and we are just trying to lend a hand to others.

    It's the daily practice of this that I love the most. Let's just say it's a good kick in the butt.

    Sometimes I forget to be kind and this will be a good reminder.
  • Shared by LaughingBuddha on Aug 9, 2013

    As they say, it is in giving that we receive -- and I'm looking forward to practice that with a community of kindred spirits.

    The biggest surprise for me was the friends. I could've done it alone but with my friends, it made the world of a difference.
