Ripple #3

( ( ( Kindness Ripples ) ) ) is about bringing more kindness and joy to the world. ~ ~ Your ripple could be featured next!

The third ripple drawing I did was for a leather and shoe craftsman who refused to accept payment from me for his services after I told him my life story.  I made a FUNNY sign for his door because he’s a true craftsman, but not an early riser. 😉

Leo’s kindness to a stranger overwhelmed me.

This drawing was created on May 26, 2017 in front of Verdugo Shoe Repair at 1815 W Verdugo Ave, Burbank, CA.

I was in Santa Barbara by the time he discovered my drawing for him.  The joy from him and the stories he told me about reactions from his friends and customers was delightful.  I was hooked on the concept of this project at this point!


Two days after doing the drawing above, I went to the Santa Barbara chalk drawing festival and shared this simple idea. Artists loved it. That’s how this website was born because I want to inspire YOU to thank others for kindness in this special way where ever you live.

Here is a video I made of the event:

As the ripples are published, you will find them in the blog posts links below and many will be featured in special communications to inspire others.
