Welcome to the GEP’s International Kindness Club!
Our vision is to promote an ethical society which strives to remove pain, share happiness, and create unity amongst all life on Earth.
We endeavour to practice kindness in our daily lives, organize activities to relieve suffering, establish local Kindness Clubs, educate children about human values, instil sustainable habits, and inspire the public to live a more compassionate, loving and tolerant life—with a smile.
Kindness during Coronavirus
Many people and organizations around the world are seeing the need for spreading kindness especially during the Coronavirus crisis. People who are isolated at home, those who are vulnerable, those taking risks, and even just our own friends and family all deserve extra kindness during these trying times.
Since the beginning of the outbreak, the Kindness Club has been spreading messages about kindness and self-care during the Coronavirus crisis on social media.
Our members have been asked to do at least one act of kindness per day and to keep a Kindness Diary about it.
Members in Germany and Spain are also sewing cloth masks at home for those who need them, such as store clerks, service providers, delivery persons, etc.
The world always needs more kindness, but especially now. Let's make kindness viral!
Other Club Activities
Members of our club have so far participated in:
We also do many small acts of kindness throughout the day, such as just giving someone a smile, being a compassionate listener, making sure that no one sits alone, visiting and caring for the elderly, anonymous donations, paying for someone’s meal, helping animals in distress…
It started with the Students’ Energy Parliament acting as youth coordinator for an essay competition on kindness, in early 2019. After writing our essays, many of us felt that we wanted to do something, and to find others to amplify kindness in the world. So now we are a club of international students and adults who meet online.
An inaugural ceremony was held on June 22, 2019. Shri. K.P. Mohanan, former CEO of JaiHind TV, distributed Membership Kits to school coordinators. GEP Founder Swami Isa addressed the gathering.
Ambassadors of the Club are the founding Members, who meet online every 2 weeks to discuss club activities and priorities.
