Hello There CC Members and Kindness Corporate Advocates:
Spring is coming closer (March 20th officially). and so this time of renewal is an important time to reflect:  Ask yourself: What makes you happy and what do you need to re-commit to in order to be more fulfilled? Then, take the time to do it!

A shout out to the CC Kindness Advocates 
As many of you know, I work with schools and corporation to bring the character trait of kindness into their cultures.  I would like to salute some Connection Corner Members who got behind Random Acts of Kindness Week 2015 – Aviva Rabinovici committed to her company AR Communications getting on board as did Nancy Biderman of Harvey Kalles who did 3 kind acts as an individual and won a prize from Ara Wiseman who donated her Smart Cacao chocolate, Alanna Stone offered advice, Sandra Pakosh worked the social media and Claire Kerwin Clarke gave her time and energy too. Our advisory board member, Glain Roberts McCabe of The Executive Roundtable joined in for a second year as one of the corporate teams that demonstrated and shared the impact of Kindness. Stephanie Blok used her powerful publicity skills to help spread the word in the media. Who will join us next year?
