10,000 Miles to Kindness

10,000 Miles to Kindness

At today’s Leadership Luncheon tears flowed easily as we all related to the pain caused by cruel catty girl behavior which can rear its ugly head as early on as grade school. Molly Stroud, Eta Alpha, a 2009 graduate of Pepperdine University and co-founder of the King Campaign, challenged each of us to to act upon the values of social responsibility we profess as Delta Gammas. She, along with her non profit organization partner and a their two mothers set off on a 10,000 mile journey across the United States to document girl behavior and how kind words can make a difference to make the world a better place. In addition they launched an interactive program via their website where you and your daughters and friends can make a Kind Pledge, a Kind Apology and contribute your personal stories to the Kindmag and the Truth Wall.
Do you have the courage to lead with purpose? Make a pledge to be kind in what you do and say. Judging others, gossiping, being mean does not have to be an auto response. We as Delta Gammas should put our values into action and lead with purpose.
