from being a luxury item, Kindness
is essential to our effectiveness as a society. Recognizing this,
Brock Tully and Nadine Marshall, of Vancouver, Canada, founded KindActs
in 1998 with a belief in the powerful rippling effect of kindness.
"Our intention was to touch hearts and lift spirits throughout the
city and, in doing so, set in motion a chain reaction of kindness."
The effect was greater than ever imagined as they were contacted
by businesses, schools, media and a host of other people and organizationsall
wanting a kinder world.
What began as a simple
street campaign has grown into a BC-based non-profit organization
that stretches across the globe with kindness. Brock and Nadine
act with the intention that our society is built on a foundation
of relationships, which connect individuals to families, work environments,
Marshall & Brock
and our global community.
society has made it
a mission to
inspire human connection and activate the practice of kindness
to inspire human connection and activate the practice of kindness
globally. "My personal vision," says Nadine, "is of a world
in which we value that each one of us has a unique gift to
contribute and we encourage each other to manifest our own
potential as individuals
so that as humankind we can reach ours. Kindness
is about recognizing and honouring
both our uniqueness and our oneness."
With the vision
of a kinder world, one act at a time, KindActs is committed to raising
awareness about the timeliness and profound impact of kindness.
Brock, an author and professional speaker, works to inspire people
to reconnect with their hearts and take positive action in their
own lives and communities. "When we have a kinder world, we are
getting to the cause of our challenges, whether that includes feeding
the homeless, eliminating bullying in schools and stopping violence
against women," he says.
