Jen (Jennifer) swept in to camp quietly and efficiently like the kindness ninja that she is. To a degree, you might not have noticed her, but gradually bubbles of kindness were popping up all over camp and the energy was infectious. She brings a warmth, inclusiveness, connection and KIND vibe to any gathering she is a part of.
I had the opportunity to participate in a Kindagious Quest with a group of classmates . It was amazing to me how something so seemingly simple could really boost the mood and happiness of not only ourselves but perfect strangers as well. An unexpected result of our acts of kindness was how complete strangers joined in the cause. I loved seeing people catch the vision of what we were doing, let their guards down and join in. It was great to see how it made us reach outside ourselves and build social connection which has been said to be is the number one predictor of happiness. Those of us who participated in the Quest left the experience lighter, brighter and happier than when we embarked.
The Kindagious Quest was such an incredible experience for me. It created a beautiful opportunity to spread kindness with others while continuing to strengthen the bond I had in my Quest participant group. I look forward to bringing it to the schools and organizations that I work with.
I was lucky to be a part of the inaugural Kindagious Quest!. A lot of thought was put into designing experience, but it wasn’t just about the carefully curated supplies. The magic happened when we hit the streets and shared the positive messages, handed out flowers, gave free hugs, and wrote fun and positive messages on the sidewalk. We even had a few passer byers join in on the fun! This experience showed me how much kindness is needed, people appreciate it (although some were skeptical at first), and how good it feels to be the giver. I highly recommend the Kindagious Quest to EVERYONE! No matter if you are a student or a parent, young or old, custodian or CEO, this activity will leave you with a feel-good experience.
I participated in a Kindagious Scavenger Hunt in Oakland, CA. It was absolutely one of the most fun and uplifting team-building events I’ve encountered. Not only did we have a great time, we came away with first-hand experiences of how kindness builds trust and engagement in our communities!
