At this point in life I cannot stress how important I think even the littlest kindness shown to another is. Today’s society celebrates judging people, criticizing them, and mocking them. It is sad. We are on this earth together and the most important thing is to help others. One of my favorite sayings is from the author of Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie, “Always be kinder than necessary.”
Rainn Wilson, best known for his portrayal of Dwight Schrute on The Office and many other roles on TV and in movies, including my daughter’s favorite The Last Mimzy is the founder of SoulPancake. Together with Hershey’s Kisses they’ve started a campaign to help people remember to be kind to others.
From their press release
Together, SoulPancake and Hershey’s Kisses wanted to remind you that with we have the power to impact a person’s day as well as our own through giving a loving gesture to those around you. Taking this message to the street, SoulPancake & Hershey’s Kisses chocolates are literally showering people throughout the country with kindness! They are going to Portland, Nashville and NYC and hosting “pop up drops” dropping mini parachutes over crowds, with the iconic Hershey’s Kiss shaped tags attached featuring a call-to-action for the participant to #ShowYouCare to those around them: a friend, loved one or even a stranger.
So please feel free to share this video and remember to #ShowYouCare
