Kind World

shelagh-gordon edited

Kind World celebrates the kindness of strangers and the significance our actions can have on the lives of others. The project began as a Tumblr, curated and hosted by WBUR social media producer Nate Goldman. It is now expanding to broadcast and includes a special six-part series that aired on Morning Edition and Here & Now. The radio stories are produced by Lisa Tobin and Michael May. We are always looking for stories of kindness, small or large, so please be in touch if you have one to share. Email
