NATIONAL RANDOM KINDNESS DAY
& RK LEADERSHIP AWARD LAUNCH
Dr. Paloma Pavel and Carl Anthony will co-host a webinar on National Random Kindness Day to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Random Kindness & Senseless Acts of Beauty. We will discuss the origins of the phrase “Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty,” reflect on how the phrase can help us shape a just future, and share stories of random kindness happening around us. Special guests Sam Chaltain and Trung Le from Studio 180 and producers of SEED + SPARK will launch us into a new story for humanity.
Desmond Tutu was the first recipient of the Random Kindness Award series. The award is given to honor the values and vision that his life and leadership embody. Archbishop Tutu wrote the foreword to this book by New Village Press Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty which received a gold medal and was named Peacemaker Book of the Year.

We were inspired by this act of radical empathy and transformative hope in the face of the unprecedented campfire destruction of Paradise, CA. Paradise lost and regenerating. ‘The Key Phoenix,’ created by Jessie Mercer, was made from the keys of the homes burned in the fire. Thank you Bob Stilger, learn more about this courageous community work at newstories.org.
