The little unremembered acts of kindness and love
are the best parts of a person's life.
French physicist, inventor, and theologian Blaise Pascal remarked, “Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.”
We have immense power to make our world a kinder place through our words and actions, and at no cost. Use this gift wisely to sow more kindness seeds into your day and feel free to use these kindness cards as a tool to share and spread more 'kindfulness mindfulness' around your community, workplace, home, or school.

I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love.
