Byron local Rebecca Johnson, 24, has launched The Kindness Book project at the recent Young & Green eco-fair.

She says The Kindness Book was born to spread kindness, love, and human connection through a ‘pay-it-forward’ method.

‘Using a notebook is a creative way to encourage others to practise spreading kindness, and a tangible way to keep track of people’s kind gestures. The Kindness Book can be used to share stories, inspire and empower everyday people to take action locally, communally and globally.

The Kindness Book will benefit the community by encouraging people to give rather than receive.’

Rebecca can be contacted on 0415 559 541 or via [email protected]
