The #DaretobeKind movement was founded by Gabriella van Rij, public speaker, author, and kindness expert. Its overarching goal is to show how kindness can be used in practical ways to build safer communities and healthier relationships. Gabriella uses the following 3 methods to achieve its purpose:
Gabriella brings her 4-step “Make Kindness Your Choice Program” to schools, community centers, and corporations across the US.
Gabriella creates webisodes and conducts interviews, talks, events, and solicits media coverage that educates and raises awareness on the necessity of kindness.
The #DaretobeKind site was launched in early 2018. The site's strong user-oriented platform places an emphasis on sharing stories as the key to acceptance. "Because it is through this sharing of stories we become aware: (a) we are not alone (b) we are capable and (c) we are the solution," says Gabriella.
Gabriella extends the kindness challenge to everyone! No props, membership fees, or fiddling required. Find one person within a two-mile radius who could use a little kindness boost. Then take action. Kindness is a choice.
Now is the time for Kindness to grow more Kindness.
The vision is a SAFER world.
The method is KINDNESS.
The vehicle is YOU.
