About Year of Kindness
Year of Kindness was my personal experiment into the power of being kind. Before starting this project I had been growing more and more frustrated with the general sense of disconnectedness and lack of compassion I saw all around me. One day, I thought about this in relation to Gandhi’s motto: “Be the change you want to see in the world”. I decided that instead of feeling helpless and focusing on the problem, I would empower myself to become part of the solution. I committed myself to perform one kind act every day from April 2011-April 2012. The kindness could be for a stranger, friend or mother nature and I blogged about my experiences.
I am now living and volunteering in Jamaica and you can read about my adventures here: www.yearofjamaica.wordpress.com.
