Welcome to World Kindness USA
World Kindness USA is a registered Not For Profit and a full member of the World Kindness Movement, the peak global body, following a unanimous resolution by international delegates at the 9th General Assembly in Seoul on the 3rd of September 2017. World Kindness USA is not a governing body, it is a platform for national collaboration designed to encourage and support all sectors of our communities to engage in the global campaign for a kinder world. We are seeking applications to fill vacancies on the National Executive and for the National Advisory Council representing all sectors of the community from across the nation.
World Kindness USA ’s membership base is not specifically for Kindness organisations as it seeks engagement with Cities, Government, Business, Education, NFP Community Groups, Peak Association Bodies and Individuals. Membership to World Kindness USA is not based on members receiving or expecting benefits of membership, rather allowing others to contribute to provide a value add to the campaign for a kinder world. World Kindness USA has received recognition and independent international endorsement as the Peak US National Kindness Body.

Greetings friends in kindness,

I have been watching the energy and growth of the kindness community within the United States for some years now with increasing joy, excitement and anticipation. It has become very clear that the moment has arrived for the US kindness community to take the next step to organize ourselves in a way that will facilitate collaboration, innovation and inclusion of all sectors while at the same time reasserting a unified active participation in the growing World Kindness Movement. It is in that spirit that we invite you to join us in the national and global campaign by becoming Founding Members of  World Kindness USA on a national platform of collaboration. I look forward to meeting you at the Kindness Evolution on 22nd of April in San Francisco where we will announce the launch date of WKUSA to chart a path forward to positive change. In the meantime if any of you find yourself in the S.F. Bay Area before then, by all means contact me at  director@worldkindnessusa.org

Cities and School Districts who have recently expressed interest include.

Business

Business has an inportant role to play and is one of the greatest influences in our culture and engaing companies whether they be large public listed multi nationals, Small to Medium Enterprises *SME) or sole traders, it makes a difference to building the critical mass to change. There is a Catch. They must be prepared to meet the Kindness Performance Indicators.  WKUSA launches in April 2018 and we are looking forward to announce which businesses have been approved to become Founding Members.

The Preamble to The Declaration Of Suport

Nelson Mandela held the unshakeable belief that South Africa would see an end to Apartheid despite being imprisoned for 27 years. Abraham Lincoln held the unshakable belief that “All Men Are Created Equal” despite the threat of civil war and dissention from within his own party. The Rev Martin Luther King Had a Dream, a dream to which he gave his life to. And Ghandi believed that peaceful protest would overcome brutal injustice. They all had one thing in common, they held lofty aspirations for positive change during a time of civil conflict fuelled by fear and where kindness rarely appeared on any agenda.
