What World Kindness Day Means to Me

What World Kindness Day Means to Me

I have been trying to think of a time where an act of kindness really changed the course of my day, in the hopes that I can illustrate why kindness, which seems so simple, is actually really complicated and doesn’t feel simple at all when it’s really needed.

Today, we are sharing how our flagship phrase, Praise Up Coffee Down™, came into our lives and why we decided to share it with all of you in this way! If you have been in a long-term relationship, whether it’s amorous or a friendship, you probably have those inside jokes and phrases that you use in conversation, or to help cheer up the other person. Ours, for a while, was “praise up,” and I’ll admit we borrowed it from none other than a young contestant on our favorite reality show, Project Runway. From there, the inevitable happened – we became...
