Reading stories from A Daily Dose of Kindness about the goodness of friend to friend, family to family, and stranger to stranger can help to bridge the gaps between cultures and religions; it can transform a world filled with callousness and conceit into a world or caring; it can turn strangers into friends. --Dr. Abraham Twerski, Author and Director of Gateway Rehabilitation Center Pittsburgh, PA
Reading these kindness stories ... gives me more hope for mankind than anything else in my life. --Julia Bail, Staff Assistant, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD
You have made a difference in my life by keeping the idea of kindness in my mind every day. We are what we think. Your emails encourage me and I am sure others, that there are people out there who are doing acts of kindness, we are not alone. --Tamar Yonah, Talk Show Host, Israel National Radio
