How can you and your kids spread kindness?
It’s well documented that acts of kindness raise the givers feel good meter, leaves recipients with a wonderful sense of wellbeing and joy, and even has a positive effect on bystanders.
Ripple’s community project aims to inspire people who want to create more happiness, peace, and hope in their own lives by touching other people with acts of generosity and love.
We believe that when people regularly practice kindness, they become addicted to the feel-good emotions that warm their heart. While touching others' lives, their attitude, feelings, and actions change, and they feel more peaceful and that their life has more meaning.
With this in mind, studies prove that kindness can be a powerful antidote for a range of social, emotional and mental health issues.

Ripple Kindness Cards
Kindness cards help you to widen your ripple by reminding the recipients of your good deed to pay it forward.
The idea is that you give a card with an act of kindness to remind the recipient to do something nice for someone else. When your card is passed on, a limitless ripple has begun. Who knows just how many lives your one good deed could touch!
More than 360,000 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.
Our cards have been requested by community groups, organizations, non-profits, businesses and individuals who care about creating a kinder world.
PLEASE NOTE: As covid-19 has inflated postage costs, we are currently unable to post kindness cards outside of Australia.
