This Artist Is Giving Away “Kindness Cards” For Free
After the past two years, we all know someone who needs a little extra kindness. And artist Vicky Barone would like to remind us that kindness is actually free. Barone is giving away her “Kindness Cards” for no charge — just pay shipping — so you can help spread kindness to those in need.
“Let’s SHARE SOME KINDNESS!” the Kindness Cards description reads on Barone’s website. “We’re living through challenging times for LOTS of reasons. Now, more than ever, KINDNESS is necessary. It may seem like a small gesture, but even little acts of kindness can lead to big change … Give them to your friends, family, total strangers or keep some for yourself. Together, we can make a difference.”
In a video on her website, Barone said she was inspired to give away greeting cards when the pandemic first started in 2020. “Can I give people tools to go out and do good in the world?” she said she asked herself. “And that’s where the Kindness Card project was born.”
Each box of free Kindness Cards come with 20 different cards in 10 fun designs that use bold colors, fun geometric patterns, and imagery all illustrated by Barone. The Kindness Cards are blank so you can write your own thoughtful note on the inside for the recipient in your life who deserves a pick-me-up.
The back of each card reads, “Keep this card or pass it on to somebody who needs a little more kindness in their life,” so there’s a potential for a sisterhood of the traveling card situation if you’d like to partake.
According to Barone’s Instagram bio, she’s already given away over 300,000 Kindness Cards. Continue the flow of kindness and grab your free pack sooner than later.
