Big news! Athens, Ohio is kind!*

Wait… you already knew that?

Then join me during the first two weeks of October to prove it to others.

I’m launching a new podcast through WOUB Public Media called, “The Kindness Podcast.” In celebration of this event, I’ve teamed up with the Athens County Convention & Visitors Bureau and other area businesses to throw kindness around like confetti!

You can join the party with two simple steps:

  1. Go be kind! (Or recognize when someone’s been kind to you.)
  2. Tell everyone about it on social media using the hashtags #AthensIsKind or #FindingKindness.

That’s it! I get to read through those hashtags and highlight some of them on my own pages at,, and

Kroger and Donkey Coffee gift cards will be randomly given away, along with some super cool “kindness” rocks, and several copies of Leon’s book!

Also, you’re invited to the Baker Center Theater Tuesday, October 17th at 7:30pm for a free event featuring Netflix star, Leon Logothetis. He’s the host of the amazing show, The Kindness Diaries.

What will you do to join this kind movement now through October 17th? Together we’re proving #AthensIsKind!

*Don’t be sad if you’re not in the Athens area. You can still play along and create ripples of kindness in your own area. Just hashtag your city (#FargoisKind, #CharlotteisKind, etc.) and tag me in your post!
