My name is Linda Pang and I’m the founder of Kindness Is Catching (KiC) . I wanted to write to thank you for your company’s participation in KiC’s 2016 Winter Care Kits and Warmies project.
I started Kindness Is Catching last year following on from Feel Good Feb. Just me, wanting to ignore the many recent troubles of our world and to bring a positive vibe and attention to all that was good. To be grateful for all that we have, to encourage our children to have compassion and kindness and for them to see the world as a happy place. I am a Primary School teacher and a Special Education teacher, so my passion for helping people who are less fortunate than ourselves and involving our children’s generation is genuine.
It was my wish to harness the kindness of our local community to help homeless people feel cared for and to make wintertime in Sydney a bit more comfortable. In 2015, my goal was to collect 100 Winter Care Kits and a few knitted scarves, beanies and gloves.
