Great Hearts Initiatives | The Kindness Connection

Mission

TKC cultivates lifelong giving through impactful service experiences that connect people with those who will benefit from kindness!

The Kindness Connection started as a vision of two Wilmette, IL mothers who wanted to find meaningful age-appropriate volunteer projects to do with their children.

Since 2006, The Kindness Connection has reached 35,000 youth volunteers through 75 schools and organizations, and delivered over 45,000 handmade projects to 40 nonprofits around the world.
