From Konnector Karen
We are an amazing group of kind-hearted people who love to encourage and inspire one another to spread love and kindness everywhere. We believe kindness is contagious and know that when we are filled, we are able to then build up others.
Kindness is a Choice
Kindness can be shown in small ways like saying hi to a neighbor who is walking down the street, paying for the person's coffee behind you, bringing a meal to an ill friend or letting another driver merge into your lane with a smile on your face.
As we go through our daily lives we lead by example. Others see how we are putting smiles on other's faces and then they jump on the kindness bandwagon. It is fun and easy to do!
Kindness should be shared at all times with everybody. The more acts we do the more chains of kindness are formed. The Kindness Konnectors do daily acts and also head out into the community. To date they have prepared sack lunches for the homeless, delivered flowers and visits to the elderly and sent cards in the mail to brighten other's days. We will always be looking for other ways to have a ripple effect in the community.
Social media has become a big source in sharing kindness as well. If we visit the elderly here in Arizona and a girl sees it on Instagram in New Jersey and gets motivated to do some kind deeds in her town.Follow Us On Facebook

What people say about our movement!
Kindness Konnectors has brought into focus and reminded me that there is a way for each of us to do a little (or big) act of kindness every day. I love hearing the stories about how other people have found their own way to spread kindness. Being a part of the group has inspired me to seek out those opportunities to be and do better. I LOVE this group.
I feel we bringsunlight where there is often darkness. In our group we try and include those that often feel excluded. Personally,that one day of lighting up someone's life,lifts me up for days! There simply is nothing more rewarding then taking time to share Kindness. I can't do what I used to do and it often brings me down. Now I can't wait until Friday because I actually receive way more then I can give. Loving what I do.
Kindness Konnectors is a local group of people who enjoy bringing happiness, warmth, compassion and positivity to others within our community. Kindness Konnectors provides me the opportunity to make a difference in another person's life, while at the same time, showing me my blessings. It reaffirms that I, and everyone else, matters in even the smallest of ways.
