Meeting Emmy Perry is truly an amazing moment. Seeing the compassion and passion that emanate from her deep, brown eyes is life-changing, as there is such a clear understanding in someone at such a young age in how the world can be better, and that what little you can do (or  lot) makes a clear and important difference. Perry, who has dedicated her life to saving dogs and giving back to her community, walks us through the steps in taking action..

.. towards ideas, concept, and causes you believe in. And it’s true, that we all can pave the way, change the course, and devote ourselves to something special just through the desire and time we choose to give. This is a perfect story for the holidays and for looking into the new year and how we all can make a difference in 2017.

Acts of kindness small and large are so meaningful in shaping society. The smallest bit of consideration or thoughtfulness can change someone’s day, someone’s outlook and even their life.

With some humor, a light heart and some perspective, Ashley Dickinson of Kinda Kind is making Kindness Badass. No matter who you are or what you’re doing, we all make a difference. We all want to get ahead but while we do, let’s do it with kindness.

After all Kindness IS Badass.
