Frequently Asked Questions



Kindness ripples are the kind acts that occur after each thoughtful act is completed. We are hoping that each act of kindness will create many kindness ripples. Kindnesstracker.org is unique in that it allows participants to view the specific kind acts that occurred as a result of their caring actions.

Our goal is to help individuals learn about the principle of kindness by providing a fun venue which tracks how kindness grows and multiplies. We hope to develop empathetic individuals who understand the intrinsic benefits of kindness and incorporate kind acts into their lives for a lifetime. During this process, we hope to create a more caring school, community, nation, and world.
