PSU BKind is a student organization that describes themselves as a group of students trying to bring BKind to campus. BKind is an Israeli organization focused on promoting acts of kindness in everyday life.
BKind is a social enterprise and a group of people that challenge themselves to create the kind of world they’d like to live in — a society that feels good to be a part of. It was founded in Israel by Eran Rozen and Dan Liebeschutz. They reach schools, workplaces, and diverse communities and encourage them to have a positive attitude towards the people they encounter. They also inspire people to be proactive and to change the things that affect their own reality. Participants in the “BKind” talks receive a BKind card which is “a tool we devised to promote ‘good deed chains’ that motivate and let everyone know how they too can take an active part in making this world a better place.” For more information check out the BKind World website or like the PSU BKind Facebook page.
