Double Your Kindness with a ReThink Kindness Card

On the morning of August 23rd, 2013, hundreds of people across Trinidad and Tobago were pleasantly surprised to receive a random act of kindness from ReThink. It was a simple gesture occurring simultaneously across the island.

People visiting doubles vendors in various locations discovered that their early morning local breakfast fare of hot doubles was already paid for by a group of our Happiness Ambassadors.” Each customer arriving at the doubles vendor received his or her free doubles and a Kindness Card from a Happiness Ambassador. The card simply states that the person is the recipient of a random act of kindness, which he or she is nudged to now pass on to someone else in any way deemed appropriate. The card carries a number and our website through which the experiences can be registered. This way, the kindness that is paid forward can be tracked showing how the ripple started by one person can grow to impact on so many others. ReThink’s philosophy is that Happiness can only be gained when it is freely shared with others, even with someone you may not know at all. The idea being, if we are able to get the participation of as many people as possible in this initiative, we will all together be making Trinidad and Tobago a happier, better place filled with kindness and genuine concern for each other’s welfare. It all begins with one simple act and can grow from there to influence an entire nation.
