In august 2017 I have performed 2.200 random acts of kindness in a month and thousands of people joined me in that month. Because of performing those acts of kindness I experience a greater sense of purpose and also I experience more transcendence and belonging. That is why I experience more meaning in my life. It was for me great to lead this initiative and see all those people perform those acts of kindness and hear their experiences. In the radio interview below I talk about my experience during the month. You can join the movement with the facebook group. Facebook group Acts of kindness Nederland We will also perform acts of kindness with a group of people in Utrecht on Saturday 21th of October at 15.00.
