THE PURPOSE OF THE KINDNESS WALK
Robert F. Smith is going to begin The Kindness Walk on October 19, 2018, and it will begin in Long Beach, California (Pine Avenue Pier) and it will end on November 20, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada (On the Las Vegas Strip—exact location to be determined). Robert’s dream initially was to complete raising funds for a service dog that is needed for Tyler Renfro, who has severe autism and diabetes. Robert didn’t realize how much larger the vision would grow. Robert is going to deliver Flags from Flags of Valor to Veterans in the cities and towns he passes, he will support other people with disabilities, and reach out to children with life-threatening challenges.
Along his travels it is his hope to distribute 1,000 sports game towels (Robert co-created) to our deployed Veterans and special needs classes; and last but not least Robert will share 1,000 sock puppets to share with children who need a smile. Robert has a non-profit called “The Little Green Apples Project” and it is thru this non-profit The Kindness Walk was born.
The purpose of The Little Green Apples Project is to share Intentional Acts of Kindness to people. Therefore, as he walks each day, he will share Acts of Kindness with other non-profits and with the people of the communities he passes thru. We look forward to your participation.
ROBERT F. SMITH’S MANTRA
Even a blind man can see that one act of kindness makes the world a better place and that world begins with you. Robert F. Smith
