40 Days, 40 Ways to Change the World
Lisa Barrickman's personal kindness initiative turned into 20,000 separate acts of kindness as other began their own kindness journeys and started changing lives. 
A Case for Kindness will inspire and equip you to have the same influence in the lives of your friends, family, and community. You will find kindness practices that easily fit into the margins of your daily interactions but can have a lasting impact, while enriching your own life in the process. 
Kindness Starts With Me

Inspired by A Case for Kindness, this journal is the perfect place to plan and record the many ways to make someone's life better.

This motivating journal includes suggestions for spreading kindness, as well as inspirational quotes and verses.
