Parish Lowrie spoke to the Optimist Club of Jasper on December 17th about The Kindness Revolution. What is The Kindness Revolution? Based on the principles of the best-selling book of the same name, Ed Horrell in 2007 set up a non-profit organization that is 100% funded by a business membership called Community Champions. Parish Lowrie of Parish Lowrie State Farm is our local Community Champion.
The mission is to bring back the sorely needed values of dignity, respect and kindness to the workplace, schools and everyday life. It is a starting point in shaping kind behavior. The Kindness Revolution is an "anti bullying" program that rewards kind behavior. How is that done? Since the focus is on awareness, they are active in telling "our story". Parish works with Jasper Elementary School with this program by providing the popular "Pay It Forward" wristbands to encourage adults and children to recognize and promote kindness as well as the popular "It's Cool 2 B Kind" wristband program. The program shares "Kindness Tips" with hundreds of thousands of followers on social media, promoting respectful and courteous behavior.
Parish pointed out that our community is known as a Caring Community but wouldn't it be wonderful to also be known as the Kindness Community? He is available to speak to other groups about this initiative by contacting him at 706-692-6920 or email him at Parish@ParishLowrie.com
The Optimist Club will meet again on January 7th and 21st at the Woodbridge Inn at 7:00 AM for breakfast and great speakers! Come learn more about how the Optimist Club works to meet their mission of "bringing out the best in kids" in our community.
