The Kindness Song

GlennColtonAuthor, songwriter, and musical entertainer Glenn Colton, has been teaching through performance for the better part of his life.  He is best known for the more than 5000 high energy children and family concerts he has put on throughout North America.  The Random Acts of Kindness song is only one of the many songs highlighted in his “Raise Our Voices For Healthy Choices” show that he would go on tour with to support character education programs in schools and communities.  In this show, character is defined as: knowing what is right, caring about what is right, and doing what is right.  His objective is to encourage healthy choices with kids and to help them discover how the choices we make today, affect our tomorrow.  Glenn is now retired and not longer goes on tour.  You can still enjoy his songs and stories as he has many different books, CD’s and DVD’s celebrating his work.  You can find them all on his website at: www.glenncolton.com

We wanted to share the Random Acts of Kindness song and its lyrics with you today as we know children of all ages can sometimes relate so much better and remember the message that is to be taught, through the power of song.  Chase loved music and we know that he would have been singing and strumming his guitar right along with Glenn.

Random Acts Of Kindness

written by Glenn Colton

A random act of kindness, is perfect and its free.  It happens when we help a friend unexpectedly.

You were in a hurry, when you saw me all alone.  You told me not to worry, I’ll help you find your way home

A random act of kindness is perfect and its free.  It happens when we help a friend unexpectedly.

You wrote me a letter, when I was feeling blue.  It sure made me feel better, to know that I’ve a good friend like you

A random act of kindness, is perfect and its free.  It happens when we help a friend unexpectedly.

Remember when you said to me, that I was your best friend.  The words you spoke so beautifuly, helped me to smile once again … once again

A random act of kindness, is perfect and its free.  It happens when we help a friend unexpectedly.

A random act of kindness, is perfect and its free.  It happens when we help a friend unexpectedly.

The Kindness Family

Everyday People.

Everyday Kindness.

Meet the Haswells, a self-declared “Kindness Family”. The parents started their own community organization. The kids started a kindness club at their school.  Together, this amazing family is inspiring their community to think, act and be kind. Watch the video below to see this Kindness Family in action!

Maria Haswell recalls how it all started: “One day I woke up and wanted to do a random act of kindness.” Since that day, Maria and her husband, Mark, founded SpreadKindness.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and empowering people to practice kindness in their everyday lives. Their children, Khaela and Ryan took it upon themselves to start a Kindness Club at their high school. The club is dedicated to making their campus a kinder place, and often holds events like free hug days and teacher appreciation days.

This family is an inspiration to us all! Watch the video below for more information, or check out SpreadKindness.org.
