Believe in Kindness

A fourteen year old Miami teen named Daniela Ludmir developed a beautiful idea. In a world where social media has the power to propel a concept to the point that it goes viral, why does Believe in Kindness not have more exposure?

Believe in Kindess stems from the desire to help, uplift and heal the spirit. This remarkable girl founded the organization to help spread kindness. Today, the foundation also assists underprivileged pediatric cancer patients.

The concept is driven by knitting kits. When you order your kit, you receive the items seen below: yarn, knitting needle, and puff paint. You knit a yellow circle, apply the puff paint and turn it into a a cheerful emoji (instructional video down below). The kit also contains a kindness note that you will fill out with encouraging words. Once finished, you will mail it back to the foundation. Upon receipt, your smiley face gets sewn onto a beanie and provides jobs to women in Peru who work to craft the beanies. The finished product is then given to sick kids.

If you're a South Florida local interested in volunteering, you can contact the organization.  Be on the lookout for group classes (referred to as Knitting Stories within the organization) where you will be able to create the smiley faces in an assembly style setting.

To see a step-by-step tutorial on how to knit the smiley face, see the below YouTube video:

The concept is pure and simple at its core: spread love by your actions.  No matter how small the feat,  you can help someone heal and make a difference in their life.
