Kindness Blog Thanks You!

thank you

Earlier today, ten months since we started, the 1,000th post was published on Kindness Blog. As I felt this was a bit of a milestone, I just wanted to take a moment out to give my deepest and most sincere thanks to you all.

Recently, as was the original plan, Lucy and Curtis (my blogging colleagues) have diverted their attentions away from the blog due to their studying commitments. As I have a full-time job in IT away from the blog, this has meant that I have relied more and more upon, what I have come to call, the ‘army of the kind’. So many lovely people out there (and you know who you are) are working very hard to promote the site, practicing random (and not so random) acts of kindness, submitting kindness-based content for review and basically giving me endless encouragement and much-needed advice. I truly feel blessed.

Because of all this support, the blog continues to grow. This month we are on course for well over 100,000 views. Obviously Kindness is a popular thing! As another example of this, we recently asked if our readers could help us by sharing the “Tom Attwater Is Dying. His Daughter Might Die, Too. The Letter He Left For Her Is Unforgettable.” Post. As I sit here writing this, that article has already been shared on Facebook over 7,000 times! If those shares, in any way, lead to more funds being raised for Tom and his family then we can most definitely feel some sense of shared achievement. Kindness Blog, but especially it’s readers, are actually helping other people and that’s what the point of the blog is after all. How wonderful!

To end, I’d just like to mention that if you would like to contribute to Kindness Blog, in any way, please do let me know. More recruits to the ‘army of the kind’ are needed. The mainstream media is so relentlessly, depressingly negative, that spreading a message of kindness and hope to others is most definitely a positive and, thanks to social media etc, easy thing that all of us can do. So, whatever skills or input you can bring to the mix are very welcome. Please contact me. Let’s talk.

Thank you all so much.

Mike.

  1. Also, just for clarity, whilst I can certainly use content contributions for good Kindness-related media, I do not require any financial contributions at all!!! Sorry for the confusion!

    Since this post went up, I have already received kind offers of financial help coming through to our mail address. Thank you so much for offering, but no money whatsoever is needed. Just your help!

    Thank you 🙂

    Mike.

  2. Thank you for inspiring hope and bringing the ‘good’ to light. There is too much of a concentration on the bad things that happen and not the ‘good’ heart inspiring acts of kindness and compassion. Your efforts are appreciated. Blessings, Lydia
