grand Ole Opry To Dollywood
The Purpose Of The Kindness Walk
“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
Robert F. Smith is going to begin The Kindness Walk 2019, from The Grand Ole Opry to Dollywood. This year we will be supporting our First Responders & kids in life-threatening challenges. We will be supporting the efforts of The Gary Sinise Foundation, and Henry’s Place. In addition, we will be passing out Doopalpoops - Puppets with a purpose, and we will be sharing our Flooples - The Original Toss To Target Game Towels. We will be doing countless intentional acts of kindness along our 350-mile route in 26 days. We are honored to be passing thru the Volunteer State of Tennessee. You can join us in our efforts by making a donation or calling us with a talent you have that may benefit us.
We are honored to be involved with the great state of Tennessee, The Gary Sinise Foundation & Henry’s Place. I can’t wait to walk 1,000,000 more steps to do Intentional Acts of Kindness.
This is a partial list as we will be changing our map and adding towns and cities as we contact areas close to our route. We will visit them if time allows and they are wanting to support our efforts with First Responders.
