cool-to-be-kind

Authors: Val Litwin, Chris Bratseth, Brad Stokes

From the Publisher:
In August of 2002, four twenty-something friends in Canada packed a motor home and embarked upon a three-month nonprofit marathon known coast to coast as The Extreme Kindness Tour. Their mission: to commit as many random acts of kindness in as many communities as possible. This record documents their heartwarming stories of friendship and kindness and provides readers with ways to start their own kindness movements and get involved in their own communities. From mile zero to St. John’’s, The Extreme Kindness Tour staffed soup kitchens, broke horses, roofed houses, delivered flowers, sang songs, visited hospitals, raised funds, and staged rallies determined to make someone’’s day and encourage them to “pay it forward,” connecting the world through kindness. The crew originally documented their transCanadian adventures on www.extremekindness.com, which offers testimonials, resources, and inspiration for those ready to hit the road with kind acts of their own.
