All net proceeds from the World Kindness Concert are donated to KindActs, a BC non-profit
Society whose mission is to inspire human connection and activate the practice of kindness
Examples of KindActs Successes:
Cycling for Kindness 2000:
An 18,000-kilometre journey to join and touch hearts around North America. After 205 days on the road, the Team reached millions of people with the important message of kindness
through conferences, presentations to schools and businesses and over 210 media interviews.
Kindnes s Concert
Ride Kind/Drive Kind:
A joint initiative of the Victoria Kindness Group, ICBC and BC Transit in recognition of the
direct relationship between kindness, courtesy and road safety. Elementary children’s artwork
depicting kindness were displayed on over 210 buses and seen by as many as 70,000 bus riders
and an even greater number of auto-drivers daily.
The Kindness to Colleagues™ Program:
A proactive program aimed at countering the increasing and often hidden violence in the
workplace. Coupled with a determination to put the human back in human resources, this
program produced outstanding results including more positive employee relations, decreased stress claims and an overall sense of a more caring employer.
The Kindness is Cool Canada Day Parade Float:
The youth-focused Kindness is Cool Team launched a float at the Canada Day 2000 Parade
in Abbotsford to raise awareness for kindness. They not only won the hearts of 10,000
spectators but also won first prize in their category and were so well received that they
returned for a second run in 2001 and a third run in 2002.
Porridge for the Soul:
A unique and uplifting monthly breakfast gathering that mixes an inspiring keynote
speaker with an opportunity to connect and network with like-minded individuals interested
in creating positive change in their communities and workplaces.
Examples of KindActs Successes:
The Invest in a Kinder World Coin-spiracy:
Close to 60 schools in over 20 communities in BC have registered for this new province-
wide grassroots campaign to raise awareness about how a little kindness can go a long way.
The campaign, a pilot project of KindActs, involves the launch and tracking of a kindness
currency called a “UNI” - short for the universal nature of kindness. To launch the UNI,
schools commit to performing three kind acts – one for self, the environment and another -
and then ‘paying the coin forward’. Since each UNI is uniquely coded, students are able to
experience the impact of their kind acts by tracking their coin’s adventures as it passes hands
and touches hearts around the globe on the campaign site, www.investinakinderworld.com.
“Get Reel, Express How You Feel” Film Series:
A monthly evening event which features a short film, panel discussion and poet.

World Kindness Concert Program
In hosting this World Kindness Concert, we are joined by communities from around the

kindness as a basic condition of a satisfying and meaningful life and to join together the
