How One Act of Kindness A Week on the Web
Can Transform Our World into a Happier Place
Are you depressed about the economy, gas prices, and the condition of the planet?
Are you tired of feeling anxious and worried all the time?
Do you feel like your life is not on track and that you can’t win?
The problem is negativity. Kindness is the cure.
Happiness expert and author CJ Scarlet is starting a kindness revolution and she wants YOU to join her! Over the next year, CJ will personally perform 365 acts of kindness and recruit a legion of everyday people like YOU to perform similar acts in their own communities, such as babysitting for a busy mom so she can take a break, taking neighbors’ trash cans off the street and leaving them an anonymous note, personally thanking our teachers and police officers, and buying a bus ticket for a stranded homeless person to return to their family. CJ’s actions will be digitally recorded and made available on YouTube (www.youtube.com/thekissrevolution) as well as her own online social network site (http://www.thekindnesscure.org).
CJ learned about the power of kindness the hard way. At the age of 12 she was sexually assaulted. Then as an adult she was diagnosed with Lupus and Scleroderma. When she was told her long-term disability had become life threatening, her world fell apart. Then a Tibetan lama commanded her to “stop feeling sorry for herself and focus on the happiness of others” and her life was transformed. The lama next ordered CJ to teach others the secrets to happiness that she had learned and the idea for the Kindness Cure Campaign was born.
Take a few minutes to watch CJ's video which explains what she is doing and shows you some of the things she has done - http://www.thekindnesscure.org/video. Each person is invited to visit http://www.thekindnesscure.org and join the revolution. This is a social network where you can learn more about Kindness for the Cure and share the acts of kindness that you do. This is a chance to do something very positive, inspiring and heart warming. When was the last time you had a chance to join a positive worldwide revolution?
