Donna Cameron speaks to this from experience. During her career in nonprofit organizations and causes. she has seen kindness in action and been awed by its power to transform. While she considered herself a reasonably nice person (with occasional lapses into crankiness), she knew that true kindness was a step above. When she committed to a year of living kindly, she learned that it takes practice, patience, understanding . . . and a sense of humor!
Read her book, A YEAR OF LIVING KINDLY: CHOICES THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE AND THE WORLD AROUND YOU, but for a quick preview of her philosophy JOIN US THIS THURSDAY!
