Kindness is the antidote to anxiety, stress and disconnection. There are many benefits of sharing kindness on See Kindness, including: - you receive a boost of oxytocin, as does everyone who reads your post - you inspire others to pay it forward - you create an online space for people to feel safe We want to expand our global map of kindness, and that starts with you sharing our stories of kindness and pinning to the map where they took place. You can share an act of kindness that you did for someone else, one that you witnessed, or something that someone else did for you.
To support findability and searching as well as for a little fun, we've created these 10 categories for your Acts of Kindness. You don't have to categorize or choose just one. It's up to you! In the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.
If you can’t decide where your Act fits or you don’t want to choose a category, this icon will be assigned to your post.
All creative projects that radiate kindness. For example, music concerts, art murals around the city, and more.
Acts of kindness for or from postal, food and supplies delivery workers.
Acts of Kindness that involve delivering goods to someone. For example, dropping off groceries for a neighbour.
Acts of kindness between two people. For instance, a friend helps you with a difficult task. Or the amazing front line workers who help individuals every day.
Acts of kindness for or from front line workers (nurses, doctors, teachers, janitorial staff, bus drivers) and all essential workers who help us imagine a better future by taking care of us today.
Acts of kindness that inspire the community, create a human connection and affect many people at once. For example, the 7 pm cheer in Vancouver for our frontline workers.
All acts of kindness related to animals. For example, taking your dog to a friend who is struggling.
Kindness that involves money. For example, paying for someone’s groceries or buying a stranger a coffee. Our pay it forward category.
We rely on donations to keep the Kindness Community going! All donations will go towards keeping our site up and running so we can continue to make the workd a better place.
For every donation made, we will post a Thank You pin on the Map of Kindness to show our gratitude.Show us some kindness and support the community DONATE NOW
SeeKindness came from the restless energy of a multi-generational group people stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020. We decided that we wanted to create positive energy to counter all the stress and tension of those days. Creating SeeKindness was also good for our mental energy as it has kept us focused.
As we researched the benefits and the scope of SeeKindness matured, we came to understand that SeeKindness could be broadened beyond one pandemic to create positive energy and enhance emotional well-being on a daily basis.
We have big ideas and plans for SeeKindness as we grow the platform, and love the support that you are giving us. And please send us your ideas.

There is considerable research on the emotional benefits of acts of kindness.
According to this article, kindness is not only a pain killer, reduces stress, improves mood, elevates pleasure and improves relationships, it also makes you more attractive. Who doesn’t want that?
There is science behind kindness. Our brains love kindness. A study of 3000 people found that 95% of people feel good when they help someone else, .. and those feelings last hours or even days for 81% of people.
Do your own research; you will be amazed how a little kindness goes a long way.
