Inspiring kindness in your community

Joy Drop

JOY begins with you.  Start by spreading a drop of JOY to an unsuspecting person and inspire them to pass it on by leaving the Joy Drop card. Watch how a single act of kindness can turn into a waterfall of kindness and connection in your community. 


Call to Action

  1. Decide on the person and the details of the JOY you will drop.

  2. Drop the JOY and the card so they can spread the joy to someone else. 

  3. Savor the JOY you feel.
