What's the kindest thing you did this week?


We would like people to ask each other 1 simple question: "What is the kindest thing you did this week?"

The question is small and simple, but we've noticed it creates surprisingly powerful reactions in people being asked the question and in those reading or hearing other peoples' replies.

In order to facilitate this, we will build a website where people can see answers to the question and examples of projects built around this simple act, from big to small, uploaded by whomever takes up the question and creates an #kindestthing project. On the website they can also find a toolbox with helpful materials, tutorials, and resources in order to create their own #kindestthing project. Third the website will also host a community section where people can connect and exchange experiences.

The idea of #kindestthing is to create awareness about compassion and spotlight small positive actions we can do around us on a daily basis. The result will be stronger, more resilient communities.
