About Seven Days of Kindness
The SevenDays® experience provides opportunities encouraging all people to increase kindness through knowledge, mindset and behavior. In April 2014, after a white supremacist murdered three Kansas City people because of his hate for Jews, two families and our community joined hands and hearts to shine a light on the darkness of hate.
Workplace kindness (within the community, with colleagues, and with oneself) has proven to elevate dopamine, produces oxytocin, and stimulates the action of the vegus nerve, which all help protect your heart and slow the effects of aging. These effects of kindness help keep your team members healthy, happy, and more productive.
