Introduction

Hi there!  Thanks for visiting my Kickstarter page!  The Kindness Project is a collection of audio stories of acts of kindness.  Through The Kindness Project, and with the help of Kickstarter, I will travel the country collecting stories of kindness.  I believe that everyone has hundreds, even thousands of these stories and I want to collect and share them with the world.  Using my digital recorder, I'll collect stories from people I meet, people I already know and anyone in between.  I want to meet and speak with a wide variety of people, not just focusing on soup kitchens or volunteer centers, but rather making a point to visit places where, stereotypically, kindness is not prevalent; corporate offices, walmarts, 'bad' parts of town etc... 

Where Your Support Goes

Your support will make it possible for me to travel the country collecting these stories, it will pay for transportation costs (trains, buses), food, and lodging (if/when I don't crash with friends).  It will also help me buy necessary recording equipment and editing software.  

The Final Product

My final product will be a CD of all the edited and narrated stories (which could be yours with a $25 donation!).  These stories will also be on my website along with my previously completed stories (www.thekindproject.org). I will then pitch these completed stories to radio stations in hopes of getting on the air.
