#BeKind21: Stories Matter

September 10, 2019

We all have a story about how kindness has created an impact in our lives, whether we’re on the receiving or giving end of it. Kindness is simple, powerful, and often life-changing.

In partnership with Verizon Media, Shadille curated a night of conversations on kindness held at BUILD NYC. You can click here to watch now and scroll for a brief recap!
