These heartwarming, true stories of people doing good in the world will inspire you and rekindle your faith in humankind.

When Brad Aronson's wife Mia got sick with leukemia, they were overwhelmed by the outpouring of kindness from friends, family members, and complete strangers. Inspired by the many demonstrations of "humankindness" that supported their family through Mia's recovery, Brad began seeking out and writing the stories of individuals and organizations whose acts of kindness transform lives every day.

The stories in HumanKind are about ordinary people making an extraordinary impact. You'll meet the group of grandmothers who mend clothes for homeless people; the woman who created a movement that has provided more than 500,000 meals for the hungry; the construction worker whose kindness saved a homeless man during a chance encounter.

As well as these life-enriching stories of generosity and good will, the book lists many organizations who can channel and amplify your own acts of kindness. In HumanKind you will:

  • Learn how donating even a small amount can have an outsized impact like helping to cure an individual's blindness
  • Find out how you can make a difference with your words by writing letters of encouragement to hospitalized kids, foster youths, and others who will cherish your support
  • Discover many more opportunities to provide help to those in need, from disadvantaged young people to veterans

A perfect feel-good gift book, HumanKind will leave you feeling grateful and inspired, and provide resources for you to create positive change in your own community and around the world.
