Mr. Will Glennon
Will is seen as the original pioneer of the kindness movement in the USA being the founder of Random Acts of Kindness Foundation which was established in 1996 . A lawyer by trade and successful book publisher, Will found himself becoming a voice for Kindness, representing the USA at the international table following a series of serendipitous events. In 2012 he served as a member of the International Council, having been one of the founding members of the World Kindnesss Movement in 1997. Since stepping down from his involvement with the global movement, he had been observing the energy and growth of the kindness community within the United States for some years with increasing optimism. It became very clear to him that the moment had arrived for the US kindness community to take the next step of evolution to organize in a way that will facilitate collaboration, innovation and the inclusion of all sectors. It is in that spirit that Will has re-entered the space to encourage a nation to join with World Kindness USA on a national platform of collaboration. firstname.lastname@example.org
