Kind People: We see kindness in people everyday. In people we know and those we haven't met yet. People lending a hand, helping others, sharing a meal, a smile, paying it forward.
Kindness in Nature: There is kindness in animals, in the heart shape leaf or rock, hikers lending a hand, giving shelter from the natural elements and on and on! When we take a moment to look around, we can see kindness everywhere.
Kindness in our Community: Our communities are filled with kindness! At work, in faith based organizations, non-profits, fundraising efforts, in our public spaces and shops! Showcase the kindness that ties us all together!
Your kindness photos can occur in the moment (as in photojournalistic style) or illustrate a concept or recreate something that occurred. It's up to you.

Envision Kindness Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in East Lyme, CT, with the mission of promoting and inspiring acts of kindness and compassion in the pursuit of a happier and healthier world for all. We do so primarily through images.
Through innovative youth and social programming, positive content proliferation, and scientific research (to better understand psychological and behavioral impacts of observing, practicing and receiving kindness), we're working to, in some small part, create a kinder, more connected world.
