It’s well documented that acts of kindness raise the givers feel good meter, leaves the recipient with a wonderful sense of wellbeing and joy, and even has a positive effect on bystanders.
Ripple’s community project is a growing group of like-minded people who support, inspire and share, with a common goal of establishing ripples of kindness that touch lives and create a happier world.
We believe that when people are kind more regularly, they become addicted to the feel good emotions that puts a glow in their heart, and their attitude, feelings and actions change as they embrace a more peaceful and meaningful life.
With this in mind, kindness has the potential to be a powerful antidote to a range of psychological, emotional, and social issues such as depression, anxiety and bullying.
The kindness cards were developed so people have something tangible to remind them of their experience and to pay that kindness forward to someone else.
Request your FREE Ripple Kindness Cards and join our community of like-minded people who want to make a difference.
Each time you share a card with an act of kindness, you’re reminding the recipient to keep your ripple of kindness going.
More than 250,000 kindness cards have been distributed to people in countries all over the world, so it’s exciting to imagine how many acts of kindness have been shared.
The cards have been requested by community groups, organizations, non-profits, businesses and individuals, and are sometimes donated by printers who also care about creating a kinder world.
They’re also supplied to cafe’s participating in the Suspended Coffee movement in Victoria.
