Do you believe the world could be a kinder place?
It can, through your photography. Science shows that exposure to images of kindness can help people be kinder, happier, and more optimistic and generous.
Envision Kindness is a non-profit that inspires kindness, compassion, joy, and love through still and video photography. We share the best images to inspire people wherever they are. Some we make into videos like Monsoon Humanity.
The more that we share, the more compassionate, empathetic, happy, and healthy our communities can be.
