Back when we started the KindSpring experiment, we had no idea it would go this far. Our fundamental belief was, and continues to be, that compassion is contagious -- that it has to spread of its own accord. So we never seek press attention, focusing instead on more person to person interaction. Still, over the years, we've been featured in over a dozen books, written about in many newspapers and magazines, spoke about in radio shows, you name it. Small and big. We've even made it in a couple of small films. What we're most happy about, though, is the fact that stories on our site, from everyday hereos around the world, have often spread wildly -- few times to millions. That's inspiring, because it will create a ripple effect of even more generosity in the world.

Below is a random sampling of some coverage, some old and some new.
