Extreme Kindness

Initial Post

I couldn’t be more excited to finally have this forum to share and connect with all of you! I see this site as a venue and a vehicle to continue to build the Kindness Crew community across the globe!

Along with working on the Kindness Crew project, I am at the University of Victoria finishing my Masters of Arts degree in the Department of Education. I have been fortunate enough to find a way to pair the work we are doing with the Kindness Crew and my degree program. My research focus is on service learning (volunteer programs with a learning component). In particular, I am looking at broadening the research lens in the field of service learning to include the corporate setting. Essentially, I am looking to understand how enriched employee volunteer programs can benefit both the health community and company.

When I do find time (and I try to as much as possible!) I am balancing school and work with outrigger paddling, Ashtanga yoga, running and weight training. Taking this time revitalizes me and gives me the energy and focus I need to continue this mission.

I encourage you all to be the change you wish to see in the world…take a moments today to perform one act of kindness – bring fresh flowers to your neighbors, wash your parents’ car and get out into your community to volunteer!

Keep the Kindness coming!!
