Kindness Revolution – Maru’s Marathon
from Maru Gonzalez, Board Member of Soulforce, Inc.:
I have always been inspired by random acts of kindness, those powerful yet unassuming “just because” gestures that generate smiles and brighten days, revealing the humanity between two strangers. Yet often more magical than the acts themselves are their compounding and potentially wide-reaching impact. Indeed, kindness begets kindness; it plants a seed of gratitude from which compassion and empathy sprout.
This notion–at once simple and profound–rests at the core of Soulforce’s mission and vision for a kinder, more just world.
To celebrate Soulforce, I pledge to intentionally “pay forward” each donation made to my marathon fundraiser between now and race day. Whether it’s putting money in an expired meter, inviting someone to share my umbrella on a rainy day or letting another customer cut in front of me in the grocery line, I will honor your kindness the best way I know how: by sharing it with the rest of the world.
So join me in starting a kindness revolution!
I’ll keep you updated on my “random acts” and let you know who inspired each one. And while donating is always an added bonus, anyone can join the revolution! Feel free to give me ideas or tell me about what you’ve done to spread the love. Once the marathon is over, I will turn our accumulated acts into a mosaic of words, pictures and images to share with all of you.
Let’s get started. Together, I know we can create something really beautiful.
