In the webinar, “Is Kindness the Key to Resilience” we are calling out to the participants with a #GLOWChallenge.
- We challenge you to perform a random act of kindness.
- Write to us about it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Speak about it in the webinar on 29th June 2020, and share your random act of kindness.
Why do we ask this?
Your inspiration would allow more of us to perform such random acts of kindness, to light up the way for ourselves, and for the beneficiaries. Cultural dialogues around kindness is very encouraging and inspiring to create an eco-system of “kindness-volunteers”, and this could probably be the ripple effect which the world needs to unlock the culture of generosity – the inner transformation which can lead to a compassion revolution.
Speaker : Audrey Lin would host this cultural dialogue on everyday compassion and kindness.Her unconventional journey has been witness to a variety of settings — from studying nonviolence and social change at UC Berkeley to working in an internet startup to serving at a Buddhist monastery, embarking on a walking pilgrimage in Silicon Valley, teaching in schools, volunteering at the Gandhi Ashram in India, innovating for “compassion quotient” alongside intellectual quotient, and nurturing small acts of kindness in daily life. Audrey is a longtime volunteer with ServiceSpace, an incubator of projects that support a gift culture. She’s a co-visionary behind its virtual “Laddership” circles, a six-week virtual fellowship to support leaders (who hold questions like “What’s love’s business plan?”) to more effectively lead with selfless love. Most recently, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, she along with a team of volunteers have been nurturing an online platform, KarunaVirus.org, to amplify stories of courageous kindness — of everyday people choosing love over fear.
Please write to email@example.com for more information or if you would like to be part of this ripple effect and let this change manifest in the society.
