Whether it’s a random act, saves a life or helps you be kinder to yourself, these stories will increase empathy, compassion, and hope. You never know how your kindness can change the trajectory of your life or the life of another.
Rock Your Kindness is hosted by Tracey Ferrin. Tracey is a mother, wife, best-selling author and TikTok superstar. She is often called a “breath of fresh air” by those who know and meet her. She is a mom of 4 and has been married to the love of her life for 18 years. Together, they call Texas home.
In this episode, Tracey and Rebekah chat about the birth of ‘Let’s Be Kind’ – A nonprofit created from sharing slices of pizza to t-shirts with a swift logo on it to remember to be kind. Rebekah details the simplicity of her mission and why it’s so impactful for all students/kids growing up.
“In terms of let’s be kind, you don’t ever know what’s going on in someone’s life, but doing something small can always change someone’s day, and can always change someone’s life.”
[0:00] “It’s not always easy choosing kindness as your response to less-than-kind behavior. But today we get to hear how one amazing girl at the raw age of 13 did just that.”
