The World Kindness Card is a collaboration between The World Kindness Project & World Kindness Australia.
As a Fundraising “Tool of Engagement” the Cards have been designed as a “Platform for Collaboration” to eliminate the need for charities to outsource their goodwill to the private sector. 100% of money raised goes to support goodwill . The wholesale price paid by a company supports the campaign for a kinder world and when gifted to a charity by the company or City, they are cobranded to be retailed at a zero cost to the charity. The cards create perpetual advertising, raising public awareness to all parties engaged with the launch of the card as the stories are shared both online and passed on from one person to another.
What Is The Catch?
For a company to have their logo on the card it must be an official member to the World Kindness Project and have pledged to undertake the Kindness Performance Indicators.
First conceived in 2010 by Michael Lloyd-White and officially launched at the University of Sydney Kindness In Sports Scholarship dinner in Sydney Australia by the World Kindness Australia in 2012 the cards have funded the global campaign for a kinder world for 5 years capturing kindness around the globe. Thhey are offered to the national kindness bodies under licence and are now available in the USA to 325 million citizens. They are designed as a “Tool of Engagement” to spread the good news and support collaboration between all sectors. Cities, Businesses, Schools and Charities have used the cards over the years and now they are here. World Kindness USA is the official US peak national kindness body is proud to be launching the cards at a time when we struggle to be the best we can be. The cards have been co-branded for Schools, Charities, Cities and Businesses.
The cards challenge outdated models of fundraising removing the middleman seeing 100% go to Goodwill. More importantly the Cards capture acts of kindness witnessed in the community and stay in touch with you even after they have been passed on. Whether it’s 5 years from now; or 5000 miles from its point of origin, every time a new story is registered it will send you and every previous recipient a link to Google Maps showing you exactly where it is, how many miles its traveled and the act of kindness its captured. Orders for 1000 cards or more can have artwork changed to suit with a pre registered message enterd on your behalf on every card to include a message from CEO and the company’s dedicated Kindness landing page on their website. The perfect “Tool of Engagement” for an event to launch kindness in your community, workplace or school.
