Recently, we received a comment from the people behind a wonderful project: Kindness – The Movie. We wanted to pass on their project to you. Get involved!
Kindness is a groundbreaking documentary project in which people are invited to share true stories of kindness that they have received or observed. Even as you read this, volunteers are beginning to collect stories in the form of interviews. The most compelling stories will be featured on this website and will be considered for inclusion in the upcoming documentary film Kindness.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Our Video Contest is now open! Top prize – $1000! We are inviting you, the public, to record or document true stories, or create short pieces related to kindness. These pieces might be you telling us a story on video, getting a friend or family member to tell a story, a short video showing us some kindness that you observe in the world, or a short film or video on the theme of kindness, a piece of animation, a photo, a written story or poem, an original song or piece of music, or any other form you wish to use to share your experience of kindness. The only restriction is that all material must be original (you created it), not commercial or licensed material (unless you own the license). Check out all the details under How to Enter Contest.
The goal of this project is to celebrate kindness in our world. We want to create an opportunity for people to look for evidence of kindness, from the simplest acts to the most profound. Kindness really is the best of human nature, and we can find it everywhere, in every culture, in every form. Often we just don’t notice it. So what would happen if people started paying attention to kindness? Celebrating kindness in all its forms? What would that mean in our world? A world of kindness? It’s a radical idea, we know, and that’s what we have in mind. We want to create a kindness revolution, and you’re invited to be a part of it. Are you in?
