Ripples v11.12: Unleashing Kindness, uROCK!
The Ripples Project is a tribe of 22,044
who believe tiny actions create big possibilities
1999-2009: 10 years of Ripples!
With every act of kindness a new flower blooms.

No kind action ever stops with itself.
One kind action leads to another.
Good example is followed.
A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions,
and the roots spring up and make new trees.
The greatest work that kindness does to others
is that it makes them kind themselves.

uROCK! = unleashing ripples of compassion + kindness!
Ripples is going on a roadtrip. I am going to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Ripples by driving around in my smile-covered car to visit fellow Ripplers and remind us all that we CAN make it through this crazy economic mess by sharing warm smiles, kind words, and quick favors. You know Kindness Ripples, and the more we unleash ripples of compassion and kindness, the better off we will all be. I will soon need your help to decide WHERE to go after my first few experimental “waves” which begin on April 14. I will also need your help collecting 1,000 smiles before I depart…more on that next week.
Are you in?
