“Living Kindness” is an organic grassroots movement spreading kindness and eradicating incivility.
Christine Quinn, Ph.D., has years of leadership experience in higher education and was called to do more heart work. She was born into a loving and kind family. From a young age, she learned that helping others was important. Her mother was often found volunteering with the local Homemakers or her church, even with five children. Christine wanted to inspire others and create a movement that lasted well beyond her lifetime. The movement is designed to grow through engagement and commitment of volunteers who shape and advance the work.
It’s simple. Become a “Kindness Pioneer”.

Call to Kindness project
- Send a note or call someone you haven’t seen in a long time.
- At the end of the day, on a small piece of paper, write down one kind action you did and put it into a jar. At the end of the week, read through them, and see how much kindness you spread.
- Be kind to the planet. Use less energy for a week, or eat less meat, or plant a tree.
- What do you appreciate about yourself? Write down one thing every day. Reflect on your list at week’s end.
- Turn off your electronic devices for one hour each evening and be totally present to others. Reflect at week’s end: What was that like? What was the impact?
- Begin your day with an “I get to” mentality. Every day is a blessing in disguise.
- Visit someone at a facility (hospital, nursing home, etc.)
- Look into the eyes of each person you meet and see goodness/the Divine self in them.
- As a family write down on small pieces of paper, many acts of kindness you can perform to yourself or to another. Put them in a jar, and each morning draw one out. That is your act of kindness for the day. Put it back in the jar at days end. Reflect as a family at week’s end.
- At the end of each day, think about one thing you are grateful for and one act of kindness you did today. How will you be kind tomorrow?
