What is a kind image?

Great question! Here is a bit of inspiration to help you capture these impactful moments.

KIND PEOPLE

KIND PEOPLE

We see kindness in people everyday – in people we know and those we haven’t met yet. People lending a hand, helping others, sharing a meal, a smile and paying it forward.

KINDNESS IN NATURE

KINDNESS IN NATURE

There is kindness in animals, in the heart shape leaf, hikers lending a hand, giving shelter from the natural elements and more. When we take the time, we can see kindness all around.

KINDNESS IN THE COMMUNITY

KINDNESS IN THE COMMUNITY

Our communities are filled with kindness! At work, in churches, non-profits, fundraising efforts, in our public spaces and shops. Showcase the kindness that ties us all together.
