World Kindness Day - Making Kindness the Norm

As one of the core traits of being heliotropic, kindness can also be found at the root of Being the Sun. Science has proven that spreading kindness can be good for your health as well as the health of those around you. Help us support Random Acts of Kindness today (and all days) by making kindness the NORM. We hope this week’s newsletter gives you some inspiration on how you can beef up your DO IT ANYWAY muscles and Make Kindness the Norm!

We invite you to read our latest blog about World Kindness Day and pick up a copy of Be the Sun, Not the Salt  today!

WHY – Being the Salt can create:
