Everyone on our team loves you, and we are all rooting for you.
Countless people were involved in the delivery of your new gift -- from door to door -- to your hands, heart, and head.
From the shipping team at Knots of Love to the UPS store team who is on board with our mission where our packages arrive each week from all around the country -- to the UPS driver who also is supports our mission with passion and gusto, carrying on average a thousand hats a week down 2 flights of stairs and into the truck -- to our postal person who wears a Knots of Love bracelet in support and solidarity -- to our founder who calls each maker who sends a beanie and hat to personally thank and tell the maker where their lovingly handmade hats, (such as the creation/gift of love you received) were delivered -- all of these people, each one, are blasting love your way as well.
Lastly, because the science of kindness is AWESOME
and studies (1
, and countless more
) show that acts of kindness has great health benefits -- and it feels good to do -- so we hope you will share a quote from this page and/or become inspired/called to do a small act of kindness for someone in your daily life. We do acts of kindness because they are the loving and right thing to do -- but expect nothing in return.
The intention of this page is to provide you with some links to help the kindness keep growing and going -- we have nothing to sell you or ask of you. We have only love for you!
Below we have assembled a page of quotes, projects, books, videos, and ideas that are based on kindness and love.
We don't make any money on any of these links -- we want you to have them because we love them and love you.
We hope you find this inspiring, love-bringing, and helpful on your journey through whatever it is that you are going through!
P.S.: We suggest bookmarking this page or setting it as your homepage so that you can read the quotes whenever you open your phone or computer. Bit by bit, day by day, is how we will change this world and help each other. We didn't get here overnight, and we won't make a better world overnight -- but we can make an impact and change each other's world in an instant with an act of kindness and love -- and those add up, like anything in life, bit by bit, day by day -- and the good news is that you can choose kindness and love in every moment, here and now, or the next and the next. We can always choose.
P.P.S. We just started this new page of resources, so please send any ideas, feedback, and suggestions for additions to this page to firstname.lastname@example.org
