One Kind Act Begets Another/ How to Create a Culture of Kindness

Community Event

What is the kindest thing you have ever done for a stranger? Join us and learn about Catherine Pearlman’s kidney donation to a stranger and much more.

Research shows that being kind measurably boosts happiness and well-being. A great number of benefits have been reported to support teaching kindness : increased peer acceptance, a greater sense of belonging, better concentration and creative thinking to improve results at home and school. Kindness helps us be our best by doing and inspiring acts of kindness that can change the world and us for the better.

Dr. Pearlman is an assistant professor in the social work program at Brandman University, a nationally syndicated columnist, and the best-selling author of Ignore It: Increase Parenting Satisfaction by Selectively Looking the Other Way.
