I love being part of something that has special meaning. I am one of those people that believes wholeheartedly in kindness. If you are truly a kind person, no one will really ever second guess your intentions. It’s an important trait that I feel can be taught. And I feel that both my girls have a kind heart. I love that.
In celebration of the Digital HD and Blu-ray™ release of Disney’s “Cinderella” on September 15, 2015, Walt Disney Studios is proud to announce the “A Million Words of Kindness” Campaign, launched on August 15, 2015. Inspired by the spirit of Cinderella, this online initiative invites fans everywhere to pledge their commitment to be courageous and kind in the hopes of achieving “A Million Words of Kindness” in time for World Kindness Day on November 13th, 2015.
In the film “Cinderella,” Ella is told by her mother, “Where there is kindness, there is goodness; and where there is goodness, there is magic.” Now families everywhere can create this magic themselves by submitting words of courage and kindness at www.cinderellakindness.com, using the hashtags #Cinderella and #bekind or the handle @Cinderellamovie. These kind words and their entrant’s names will then appear on the site’s interactive “Kindness Wall.”
Sharing Words of Kindness
While at the D23 EXPO, we were treated to a dinner to learn of this wonderful opportunity to spread kindness. To have a campaign with a goal to have a million words of kindness shared is an amazing thing. Something I quickly signed up for by sharing my words of kindness to be posted on the site’s wall. But not only that, our family took it further and helped out a family in need. Nothing expected in return, but just for them to do the same for someone else when there is an opportunity. Best feeling in the world is to help someone else.

On the theme of acts of kindness, I have to mention how a random act of kindness recently came to me. One of my best friends’ daughter recently made me this sweet little sign out of duct tape. The words she wrote were so kind. She had no clue just how much that made my day. It’s one of those things I will keep forever. Something so small can make such a impact. Be kind.
