Why Give?

Your gift to Human Kindness Foundation is a gift that you give to real people with real stories of transformation behind bars.

With the help of your books and newsletters, I have come a long, long way in the past 13 years in prison – from a person filled with rage, hate, prejudice, lies, selfishness, and uncontrolled lust, to the person I am today – growing in love, peace, thoughtfulness, kindness and self-control. May God bless you

I’m sad that our Bo has passed on, yet truly grateful for all he shared. I’ve been almost 22 years on this life sentence. You guys carried me through the hard times. I’ve dedicated my life to tutoring, helping inmates get their G.E.D.s. My life is about improving my community; I know I can make a difference.

I wish you could see who I was 6-7 years ago to who I’ve become now. Then you would only see what a change the Human Kindness Foundation has had on me. My family writes about it and fellow inmates see it that I grew up or something is different about me. There has been a deep spiritual change in me. Thank you HKF.
Chandler, Montana State Prison
Finding your books that first time on that dusty bookshelf was like breathing in fresh air after emerging from a cave. I MEAN that. I went from stone-cold atheism to being a Jedi! I owe my peace and happiness to you guys!

Donate to a Partner Organization

HKF is a fiscal sponsor to several local organizations that are spreading kindness in their own ways. Give here if you would like to make a tax-deductible donation earmarked for one of these organizations.

Give Love

Giving can take many forms. In addition to donating, you can give back by volunteering with a local non-profit organization, helping a neighbor, or becoming a pen pal to someone who needs a friend. Every act of compassion is meaningful. It takes all of us doing what we can to make the world a kinder place.

Join us every Wednesday from 7pm-8pm EST as we sit “together-apart” to reflect and send love and kindness out to the world.
