InnovateHER KC is excited to announce we have joined Small Changes Big Shifts in an opportunity to promote more kindness in the world. Learn more about what you can expect to be delivered to your inbox for 31 days when you sign up below.

One act of Kindness can change someone’s life.

A collection of them can start a movement. Your team has the opportunity to be the ripple that starts it.

Why We Said ‘Yes’ to the Kindness Campaign & What to Expect

It’s our hope that you’ll join our IHKC community as we embark on this FREE 31-day journey together.

We understand people are struggling with their mental health these days – whether that be anxiety, depression, stress, fear, hopelessness, exhaustion, burnout, even grief – so it was important we provide a resource that is accessible and available at anytime.  This free resource is our recommendation.

Starting when you sign up, you will receive a short daily email that includes an uplifting quote, a recommended act of kindness, and the reason that act of kindness has a profound impact on your well-being.

Growing research shows that kindness has an incredibly powerful effect on your health, stress levels, and especially your mental health. Small random acts generate a chemical reaction in your brain– the release of oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin. Even better, the receiver gets the same benefits. This trio is responsible for boosting happiness, joy, purpose, and gives people a sense of belonging at work, home, and in our community. Your participation and the acts of kindness you choose to do during the 31 days is sure to impact people around you since kindness has a natural pay-it-forward effect.

We will not share your information or email with anyone. If you choose to unsubscribe, your info and email will be removed from receiving further communication.

We love that this program not only helps each person who signs up, but also creates a ripple that is carried outside of our organization’s walls into the world – into homes and ultimately into the world.

As Mister Rogers once shared, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would always say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’”

Why Kindness Matters

We have faced many changes and challenges over the last several years. In times like these, our fight or flight mode is activated: we stress more, lose sight of our purpose, and/or experience anxiety, depressive, or suicidal thoughts more strongly – all things that are on the rise in our world.

We have learned more about the word “resilience” than any other time in history. People want to build it to better face the days ahead. However, most of us don’t know where to begin that journey. Like many things, we make building resilience more complicated than it needs to be.

The first line of defense is giving ourselves more self-compassion in what we’re going through – and self-compassion is born from kindness. When we show ourselves kindness, we are far more likely to be kind to others around us. The biggest hurdle about it? We have fallen out of touch with how to be kind to ourselves and to others – and we need to revive the practice. In fact, our entire well-being depends on it.

Researchers at U.C. Berkely found that people who were kind tended to have higher self-esteem, a greater sense of self-efficacy, less depression, less anxiety, and improved physical health. Overall, scientists learned that people who were kind or regularly engaged in informal acts of kindness tended to have higher well-being. In other words, when we are well (spirit, mind, and body), we are better equipped to face our obstacles with strength, clarity, and calmness.

It’s time to lift each other up and offer to heal others and yourself – and this 31-Day Kindness Campaign gives you the opportunity and support to do this!
