Why is a new non-profit getting so much press attention? Here is why…..

Believe me, no one is more surprised than me that after just 4-5 months of launching our website and social media handles we have over 15,000 followers on Facebook, nearly 5500 on Instagram and a lot of press. It all started with a nearly half page article in the OC Register in July 2014 introducing us to our local area which lead to other media outlets reaching out to discuss what we are doing and why. Then came other periodicals, radio shows, blogging networks, online news and media outlets which gave us such an amazing platform to get where we […]

View Our Secret Calendar of Amazing Giveaways all in the Name of Kindness for a Great Cause!

One of the amazing things about ISP is that people love the concept so much they were happy to donate items from their businesses, give back to the community, help our kindness programs for schools and just spread some smiles to people in November and December. Truth be told I worked hard to get them. I am not good at asking for things sometimes but I knew the cause was a good one which is making the world a better place for my kids as they grow into young adults. Because I put a lot of time, thought and effort […]

Why Are We Giving Away Our Own Money For Kindness Characters?

Our Kids Kindness Contest is extended until the end of this month! Why? We have received the most amazing things from kids of all ages. I knew we would get some really amazing characters submitted and were excited to see the ideas were developed by all ages. What I don’t think I fully expected was the depth in which kids can articulate kindness. They are simple ideas that seem so logical once you read them but as adults we for some reason just can’t seem to relay it in such an organic manner. It’s quite fascinating to see actually. So […]

What is the #1 Way to Sustain Happiness? It’s Probably Not What You Think.

Did you know that research has proven that the single most influential factor to sustained happiness is acts of kindness and service to another? To do something greater than yourself, reach out to another human being or engage in a cause that you feel is worthwhile. Studies have shown time and time again that social status, wealth, culture, religion, material items……none of these can sustain happiness in life alone. But with consistent acts of charity, philanthropy or kindness a life of happiness is possible. We noticed our blog post did not email out this past week. In case you missed […]

Link to Kickstarter Click Here Many of you know how the Infinite Smile Project started and why we developed our book series and programs to teach kids kindness, but many of you don’t.

Our launch was behind about 50 days but it was well worth it. We met […]

What Can We Kindly Do With All That Halloween Candy & Other Fun Stuff

It is no secret that I am a big advocate of Halloween. Adults, kids, parents or not – it’s just a great holiday with a month of spooky, scary and fun nonsense. When I lived in the south I got my first taste of how they do it in the country: guys with REAL chainsaws chasing you past the haunted house into the parking lot to your car (yep, that happened) and hayrides that drop you off in the middle of the woods and leave you there. California, we cannot hold a candle with Knott’s Scary Farm and the Queen […]

The Single Most Important Piece In the News Today – And It Doesn’t Involve ISIS or Ebola

I have a love/hate relationship with social media. I have friends all over so I love that it keeps me connected with them but hate that it has caused so many problems in our youth. There is no truer statement than the one I have heard lately, “I am so glad social media, camera phones and fingertip technology wasn’t around when I was in school”. Amen. What has been cool about social media however in these past few months is watching the ideologies of ISP flourish and grow to over 10K followers on Facebook and over 5K on Instagram in […]

Monday Coffee Read: Things No One Tells You When You Move From Southern California

I saw this post floating around Facebook from blogger, Michael Peckerar, of rantlifestyle.com, “20 Things No One Tells You About When Moving Out of California”. Michael moved from outside of Los Angeles to North Carolina to go to college. Clearly this resonated with me so I had to bite and read it. I couldn’t help but laugh because he is 100% accurate. Now, mind you I left OC to go to school in the mountains of North Carolina in 1993 but it looks like some things just don’t change. So this blog post is dedicated to my friends and ISP […]
