Our Story

In January 2014, Leigh Rosanoski chose to write a short, one-off post about kindness on her facebook page. By dawn she had designed a ‘miraculous circle’ meme and decided to post about kindness every Thursday. Six months later, inspired by the transformational power of kindness and her vision of a kinder world, she launched a kindness movement with 1,000 kindness cards and her Kiwi can-do attitude.

With a core value of unconditional kindness (being kind without judgement or expectation), and her belief that a kind heart beats within us all, Leigh created the Kind Hearts Movement to inspire an international momentum to do what we can, where we can and how we can to make a difference.

And to encourage our commitment to all forms of kindness:

Be kind to ourselves first and foremost; receive kindness with gratitude; pay it forward with random acts of kindness; be unconditionally kind to people we know; connect with strangers through a warm smile, kind words, a moment of our time.

Every day is kindness day and brings infinite possibilities to change lives and create a kinder world

In July 2018, having achieved her goals of launching a global kindness movement, driving its growth and momentum, and bringing on board Kind Hearts who shared her vision and passion, Leigh resigned as CEO of Kind Hearts Trust, passing it on for generations of Kind Hearts to bring new energy and ideas to this continuing journey.
