About the Global Kindness Program

In partnership with The Fox Family Foundation, we support work that focuses on developing understanding, empathy, and compassion in the world. We believe empowering individuals who recognize and realize the power that they hold as agents of change typically continue striving for good, and their impact ripples out into the world in a myriad of positive ways.
