A Kindness Family

Here's an example of a real life story. I can see this as a load of fun with pictures, stories and kindness items that remind us to "Be Kind" everyday. Meet the Haswells, a self-declared “Kindness Family.” The parents started their own community organization, SpreadKindness.org. The kids started a kindness club at their school. Together, this amazing family is inspiring their community to think, act and be kind. Watch our video to see this Kindness Family in action!

Maria Haswell recalls how it all started: "One day I woke up and wanted to do a random act of kindness." Since that day, Maria and her husband, Mark, founded SpreadKindness.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and empowering people to practice kindness in their everyday lives. Their children, Khaela and Ryan took it upon themselves to start a Kindness Club at their high school. The club is dedicated to making their campus a kinder place, and often holds events like free hug days and teacher appreciation days.
