Finalists will be judged in part on the audition, costume design, the impact they have on their community, and how they handle unscripted moments spontaneously handling the unkindness of others. The public vote will represent 50% and a panel appointed by World Kindness USA who will take candidates and those who know them, through a round of interviews.

The finalists will be flown to an event in DC where the winner will be announced at the National Kindness Summit for World Kindness Day November 13, 2020 where we will screen the finalist auditions and how they met the kindness challenges. The winner will be presented with a $5,000 check to go to the charity of their choice.

WKUSA Goodwill Ambassadors are passionate, inspired and able to think outside the square, while understanding the importance of working within a diverse passionate team. They understand the challenges and obstacles to seeking the “kinder option” in all matters in a world which struggles to be the best it can be.

Read Story

He was given the name Patrick Malone by his carers, he never knew who his parents were or where he came from. He had no one except his best friend, in the orphanage, Craig Spent, they were like brothers. One day Craig was bullied so badly by a gang from his nearby school, he ran away, into the mountains. Concerned for his best friend, little Patrick left the orphanage late that evening to go in search of Craig. The journey was dangerous for any man, let alone a boy of 10yrs of age and especially at night.

Patrick had heard people tell stories of the strange happenings in the old abandoned temple, high in the mountains. Undaunted he did not hesitate, ignoring the warning & keep out signs, he climbed over the fence at the foot of the mountain. Along the path Patrick came across an old, blind Asian man who had been beaten, robbed and left for dead. Patrick did not take much with him but gave the old man the little food and water he had. He then helped the old man to his cottage and Patrick continued his journey. Some hours later, just before dawn, Patrick was approaching the mountain’s summit. There had been no response to his call out to Craig but instead he heard a howlof a pack of wolves. The howls were getting closer and in fear of the dogs he entered the old temple and to his surprise he found the Old blind Asian man, meditating but levitating above the floor!

The Blind man, grateful for the boys kindness, told him the history of the temple and he was a mystic and the last master of “Tai Kind Do” and that a great darkness was coming and Patrick was the “chosen one” and had passed the test. Unfortunately his friend, Craig through his anger and pain, had closed his heart and unable to forgive, was lured by dark forces to a cave on the other side of the mountain. Unknown to Patrick, Craig was to become his arch enemy Dr Von Bullie. Years of training passed and Captain Kindness emerged as our one only and best hope to lead the Kindness revolution against a world gripped by fear.
