Today, the world needs a lot of kindness. Individuals, families, communities, cities, and nations can all benefit from giving and receiving a little more kindness. Whether through actions or words, intentional kindness is the one thing that can bring balance to a world. 

When I was in kindergarten, I was the youngest kids in my class. Because I was only four-and-a-half years old, I was picked on and excluded by kids who were older than me. Thankfully, I had a family that I could talk to. My mom encouraged me to try and find happiness by being kind and making others happy. And it began to work! Being kind to my classmates meant I had to be intentionally kind even when others were not nice. I made a choice.

Six years later, I still believe that intentional kindness can change your life for the better. My experience inspired me to start The Kind Squad, which is my way of leading the change I want to see in my community and the world. 

You can join me by taking The Kind Squad Pledge online, getting on the #KindList, being #IntentionallyKind, and helping #SpreadKindness.

Once on the #KindList, inspire them to be kind and pay it forward and share your story on Instagram and Twitter. Tag @TheKindSquad and use the hashtags #KindList #IntenionallyKind #SpreadKindness and #TheKindSquad so that you can easily share with others.

By joining The Kind Squad, you’re taking a pledge to change the world… one intentionally kind act at a time. 

I believe that kindness can give everyone a reason to smile and celebrate and can make the world a happier, more inclusive community!

What is The Kind Squad?


We are a global community of kind people. We have taken The Kind Squad Pledge, joined the #KindList, are spreading kindness to make the world a more intentionally kind place.


Take The Pledge


If one person were to be intentionally kind to six people, and each of those six people were to be intentionally kind to another six other people, it should take thirteen such steps for intentional kindness to reach the entire globe. So, we ask 1.5 billion people to come forth and take The Kind Squad Pledge, get on the #KindList and #SpreadKindness. Join us in making the world a more intentional, kind place!
