We are funded entirely by our members (Community Champions).

How is that done?

Since our focus is on awareness, we are active in telling “our story” where people gather. We actively lead what we call “mini-events”, which includes participation at charitable events, golf outings, festivals, athletic events, school functions, and other creative opportunities to engage with consumers regarding initiatives to promote values-based leadership.

Can you give me some examples?

Sure! We give out our popular “Pay It Forward” Kindness Revolution wristbands all over our communities, encouraging adults and children to recognize and promote kindness. We collaborate with high school students with what we call “Student Street Rallies”, where we engage drivers with signs to “Honk if you love kindness!”. We share our “Kindness Tips” with hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, promoting respectful and courteous behavior.

Wristband comboWhere can I go to learn more information and get some of those cool free wristbands?

For more information on the program or to coordinate delivery of wristbands call C. Kaster Agency – 503-419-6421 ext. 1002
