Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for Your Kindness Project Donations!

The Kindness Starts With Me Campaign was a huge success thanks to the generosity of so many donors!

On Valentine’s Day I met with 630 students at Alta Vista Elementary School and presented each one with their own copy of the book Kindness Starts With Me. They were thrilled!

Here are a couple of comments from the students:

“Thank you for the kindness book. It was very kind of you to give us the books. For my opinion, I think what you did should go in the kindness book. …Speaking of kindness, what you showed me is that you are very generous. You’re the best!”

~With gratitude, Your friend, Jadarius.


“Thank you for the lovely book. I love the book. The book is splendid…the book is wonderful…the book is special.”



Donations continue to be accepted to support the “Kindness Starts With Me” program.

The web site is active and I have already started to give kindness books to school libraries to share the message of kindness with other students.

Many of you have asked if you can purchase a Kindness Starts With Me book. While they are not for sale, if anyone makes a $25 donation or more, they will receive a book as a “thank you” gift. It will go towards purchasing more books and continuing the program.

MAKE A DONATION by sending a check to CorEssence P.O. 922 Sarasota, Fl. 34230. Please make the check out to Advancing Compassion Project to qualify for a tax deduction.

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. I deeply appreciate the opportunity to create this ripple of kindness that will hopefully continue indefinitely.
