Kits of Kindness

The Kindness Connection offers a “Kit of Kindness” for individuals, families, classrooms, and groups…Delivered to your door.

TKC Kits of Kindness are handmade heartfelt gifts created to spread joy and kindness to others. The kit includes project supplies to be completed by a kind and compassionate volunteer and then gifted to a person who will benefit from their kindness. The kit comes with instructions, recipient ideas, and a curriculum of activities designed to encourage empathy, compassion and a giving spirit.

How it works

  • Order the project that resonates with you or your group.
  • The project(s) will be delivered to your door.
  • Complete the project as a special gift from your heart.
  • Give the gift to someone who could feel joy from your kindness. TKC also provides a list of recipients and addresses that gifts can be sent to.
  • Your gift of kindness represents compassion, empathy, and a giving spirit. This act spreads kindness and passes it to others to do the same.

 *If you are local to Chicago and would like to drop completed gifts for TKC to deliver to our partner recipients, gifts can be dropped at The Kindness Connection at Northbrook Court Mall on Tuesdays between 10am-2pm or drop at Little Beans Cafe Evanston (430 Asbury Ave, Evanston) daily between 8:30am-3:30pm (use drive-thru to drop).
