I'm Neil Bailey - patient zero for viral kindness.
There is a lot of kindness already in the world but also some truly awful things too. After many years of dabbling round the edges I now want to make as big a difference to the world as I can, so I came up with my Do Kindness idea, inspired by watching the Kindness Guy.
I wanted to make sure that people are acting on kindness not simply thinking kind thoughts, hence "do" kindness. It's all about action.
I initially set up the Do Kindness Facebook group to get people sharing acts of kindness, whether they were the person giving or receiving the kindness.
This though didn't feel enough. I was already offering my Life Coaching, Reiki, pet portraits and button jewellery as a way of potentially making a bit of money to top up my NHS salary. However it occurred to me that due to having M.E./CFS and Aspergers, getting out there and networking and spreading the word socially is a difficult thing for me, but what I do have is my time. So I decided to offer some of my skills to people where 30% of any fees go directly to various charities that I'm passionate about.
I also set up and manage the Little Waltham Food Bank.
