Hi! I'm Ella DeSane, Founder of the Kindness Grows Project

I am currently a Senior at North Shore High School working towards my IB Diploma and preparing to graduate this year. 

The Kindness Grows Project sprouted from my belief that performing acts of kindness, no matter how big or small, will not only improve the lives of those we are helping, but can also have a profoundly positive impact on the way we view ourselves, our self-esteem, and our sense of self-worth.

We are living in a time where mental health issues are on the rise, and many of us seem to have forgotten just how important we are to the people and world around us. We are more connected to our phones and computers than we are to the communities we live in. Social Media sites are our biggest influencers. We spend hours a day absorbing what is often negatively fueled content, rather than focusing on the world right outside our front doors, or even the people inside our own homes. 


It is my hope that the Kindness Grows Project will be a motivating force for all of us to perform acts of kindness for the people in our lives, for the communities we live in, or even strangers that we meet along the way. I want everyone to recognize the ripple effect our positive actions can have, to understand how much power each of us has to shape the world around us, and to see we can create our own joy and happiness simply by planting some seeds of kindness.

We all have the power to create a positive impact.


So let's spark some joy together, be the change we want to see, and lift each other up! Together, we can spread this movement around the world and watch it as it grows.


Inside and out.


Sign the pledge today and join me with the Kindness Grows Project
