ACTS OF KINDNESS
TO DO INTENTIONAL ACTS OF KINDNESS WITHOUT EXPECTATIONS.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO RAISE FUNDS TO PAY FOR MEDICAL EXPENSES FOR HEART SURGERIES, PURCHASE SHOES FOR CHILDREN IN NEED, AND TO REACH OUT TO OUR VETERANS, PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, AND KIDS WITH LIFE-THREATENING CHALLENGES.
Robert Begins Intentional Acts of Kindness
1,400,000 Steps for Veterans
The Kindness Walk all started because Robert, although totally blind, did not want to be limited by the Intentional Acts of Kindness he could do. During the past few years, Robert has helped make it possible for a service dog to be purchased and be trained, raised enough funds to support 4 heart surgeries, distributed over 800 games to the Boys & Girls Clubs and Salvation Army, distributed over 1,000 Doopalpoop puppets, and last but not least, he provided a free concert for our Veterans. Robert is determined to do more this year by walking from PALM SPRINGS to SAN FRANCISCO (date will be determined when it is safe to do so).

Robert hasn’t allowed blindness to be an obstacle. He has perfect vision of the heart and this has caused him to make a difference in the world around him. Robert and his guide have walked over 2 million steps to prepare for their biggest quest, which will be a journey of over 1,000 miles in the fall of 2021 or the beginning of 2022. In between, they are doing one day events which include walks from marathons (26 miles) to over 50 miles in one day. Each step of Robert’s journey will be to accomplish the following: Heart surgeries for kids who have been on a long-term waiting list; place shoes on children who walk thru disease infested mud in their bare feet or sandals which don’t protect them, and of course we will continue to honor our Veterans, and individuals and children with life-threatening challenges. We look forward to you joining our efforts!
“Even a blind man can see that one act of kindness makes the world a better place…and that world begins with you”

Robert's Future Dreams
The Kindness Walks 2021 - During the Corona Virus, it is difficult to predict how we will accomplish our dreams. However, Robert will begin planning and implementing walks during 2021 and 2022. He will establish walks that are 30-50 miles in length to his ultimate goal, which is traveling from PALM SPRINGS TO SAN FRANCISCO, (over 1000 miles). Robert will be walking and raising funds for The Little Green Apples Project, a nonprofit organization that Robert started, that provides charitable assistance by doing intentional acts of kindness without any expectations.
- Distribution of 2,000 Doopalpoops -- Before the Christmas holidays of 2021. Everyone can participate in this event. You can assist by donating to or sponsoring this event. As Robert passes thru the communities or sets up events in 2021 and 2022, he will continue to pass out the Doopalpoops--Puppets With A Purpose. Contact us today if you would like to be involved or participate.
- The Best Gift Of All This Christmas Song Debut. Robert, and some of his closest friends, created a song that was originally written by the famous Les Baxter. It was song that wasn't totally completed, and the song was lost for many years; so, with the help of a few of Robert's friends, a few months later the song was recorded in the original Beach Boy's Studio. The song kept the magic of the time it was originally written, and with added words, it shares an intentional act of kindness....the giving of our love. You will be able to purchase and download this song to help support our First Responders. It also makes a great Christmas gift.
WACKY FOOTNOTES INK - We have much more to come on this, as it is going to be a fun-filled event, and it will include dancers, kids, and communities. Stay tuned for more information.
