London’s Kindness Offensive has been gaining quite a bit of media coverage as of late with their approach to inspiring love and kindness in those around them. Their goal is simply to have as much fun as possible while spreading kindness and encouraging others to do the same. Both small and large scale random acts of kindness have been performed by the Kindness Offensive with the help of volunteers, companies, and charities in the London area and gained the organization quite the following.
In an attempt to sway the impersonal disregard for others that is present in the London Metropolis, the Kindness Offensive is well known for its experiment that awarded everyday people for acts of kindness. A member of the offensive would be bait, and pose as a common person in need of a helping hand. The rest of the team would lie in wait until someone came up to the stranger and offered a helping hand. The rest of the team would then out of nowhere come up to the person and begin praising their kindness.
The Kindness Offensive has been carrying out random acts of kindness over the last year in a bid to encourage good vibes in the capital. One of the most successful events took place on Shrove Tuesday, last February, when they gave out thousands of free pancakes from a diner in central London and they donated half a million more to charitable organizations. Being covered in the media quite frequently by London publications by awarding random acts of kindness with such items as medals, champagne, and flowers. The hope is that the spectacle will not only be fun for witnesses and participants, but it will inspire others to see the joy that kindness toward others can bring, and how quickly it can spread.
Donating over 25 tons of food to the needy and over 35 tons of toys to good causes, the Kindness Offensive has touched the life of countless Brits. Armed with a confetti cannon, the Kindness Offensive shows no signs on stopping in their quest to spread kindness all over London and eventually further.
