It’s well documented that acts of kindness raise the givers feel good meter, leaves the recipient with a wonderful sense of well-being and joy, and even has a positive effect on bystanders.
Ripple’s community project supports, inspires and shares with people who have a common goal of creating more happiness, peace and hope in their own lives whilst touching others with the same joy.
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 enjoy a more peaceful and meaningful life.
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
To make sure the kindness you give ripples out to others, consider getting some of our kindness cards.
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 with their act of kindness, a limitless ripple has begun. Who knows just how many lives your one good deed could touch!
More than 300,000 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, and are sometimes donated by printers who also care about creating a kinder world. If you know someone in Australia who can help with printing, please get in touch!
