  1. My kids (ages 4&5) and I were eating at Dennys in Otsego, Mn today. When I asked for our tab I was told our meals were already paid for and I was handed this card. This simple act of kindness brought me to tears.

  2. My grandma and I were in Bob’s Big Boy in Northridge California and when we got ready to pay for our bill we were told somebody paid it forward and paid our entire bill. That was such a nice gesture and whoever you were thank you so much it touched my grandma’s heart. #sheisacancersurvivor

  3. Thank you to the woman in the awesome bright yellow Dodge Ram pick up truck!! I received the Cultivate Kindness card today when you paid it forward and bought me my coffee on the drive through line at Starbucks! The card brought tears to my eyes and made me realize how much a simple gesture can mean so much. You made my day. I will keep this card as a reminder to “Cultivate Kindness”

  4. We were so moved by the presentation that we immediately wanted to take action to spread kindness as far as we could. We decided to do something for our pen pals in both Scotland and Australia. We brainstormed as a class and decided to send a copy of the book A Little Rees Specht along with a copy of Mr. Browne’s Precepts – 365 Days of Wonder. We wrote our pen pals a letter explaining the story of the presentation, we sent the books, and sent them kindness cards. Our pen pals were so excited to receive our packages and plan to spread kindness in their own country!

  5. Today’s presentation connected with students. The combination of story and science made a lasting impact. Like a mentor text, I know that we will refer back to the colored water moving forward. Each day we are faced with choices over and over! This visual representation was one that everyone, child or adult, could understand and personalize. Words and actions have reactions, I know we all want to pass on the seeds of kindness.

    Thank you for joining our Kindness Club for an intimate conversation. It was a special opportunity to have a chance to hear from you.

  6. I just got this email from a parent about her daughter’s response to today’s program (see photo). Thank you for a great day!
