Our weekly e-newsletter with top picks of kindness stories has grown to over 100,000 subscribers in a short time.


Volunteer Role:

The editors play a crucial role in encouraging new visitors to get involved in spreading the spirit of kindness! The role involves minor editing to correct typos, grammatical errors, etc At a minimum, we ask all editors to publish at least 5 stories per week.
