Methodology

General kindness effect!

Kindness is perhaps the most important tool we have to improve our society. Even though it is recognized as such, it seems to be difficult to make it a habit in everyday life. Inspiring Kindness has been developed with the perspective to put words into action. We want to shift the focus of making people behave positively, to make people inspired by those performing good actions.

The effectiveness to be inspired by kindness comes down to two main influences; authority figures who we look up to, and the honesty of the person that makes the inspiration. To optimize this, our methodology relies on those who we perceive as having great integrity and honesty including law enforcement, friends, and family. Our methodology also includes personal and public acknowledgement to reinforce habits towards daily acts of kindness (displaying positive stories collected to the public).

The Inspiring Kindness methodology involves several parties working together to not only improve the attitudes of people, but to help charities and all organisations involved. It starts by recognizing and visually displaying the good deed an individual has done, and follows it by a donation to a charity triggered from the positive action that the individual can be involved in further. The involvement of law enforcement to find good individuals and hand out "kindness citations" is another way to benefit individuals, and the perception of law enforcement. To further the effect and the growth of this, Inspiring kindness has developed a solution where those who were caught, can do the same by giving recognition and an ability to take part in our “Pay-it-Forward” method. This ripple effect of kindness is able to continue to inspire kindness through individuals, while still benefiting charities who perhaps show the kindest attitudes of all.

 Law enforcement. 

We want to give law enforcement a tool to inspire people towards kindness. Their involvement with inspiring kindness will reinforce positive behavior by recognizing positive actions in everyday life. This structure allows their action to further help people by triggering a donation towards a charity by those they've recognized. Our methodology and standards also mean their integrity will never be jeopardized by crossing paths with any commercial interests. Thier involvement will also increase public opinion towards law enforcement by interacting with the community in a positive manner. Inspiring Kindness! also makes an extraordinary effect to keep out of popular society issues such as race, religion, culture or politics – Inspiring Kindness is all about what we can do and not who we are.

How it works?

To optimize the effect on individuals, all interactions within Inspiring Kindness! starts on the spot between a police officer and a person the officer identifies for a random act of kindness. 

  • Any action considered by the officer to have benefited one or many people can be caught and recognized. 
  • The recognition is done with a card, a “Kindness Citation”, where the caught one is informed that his action has triggered a donation (money or an item such as a gift), and how to proceed to comply with it.
  • The front page of the website will display stories of other “good one’s” through videos and text.
  • When starting the exploring procedure, the caught one's good attitude will one more time be acknowledged.

As long as the entire process is designed to safeguard integrity, the communication will be facilitated to fit to the needs of those involved. A standard part of the procedure is also to encourage the caught one to pay forward their good deed to another person. This will spread the mission, give attention to more positive people, and also allow for more donations to charities. 

When the reward is forwarded, the new good-doer will be guided to a new site where the site will combine opportunities to make the caught one take part in our uniquely developed “Pay-It-Forward” solution. They may also be invited to be given the opportunity to display promotions that also benefit charities and others organizations involved. Read more about Charities -  go to charities.
