A quick scroll through the Kindness Log on the Kindness Factory’s website is a good way to feel better about the world.  

It’s a place where people log their random acts of kindness and has already clocked up almost three million entries since launching in 2015.  

Kindness is free and can have a huge impact on someone who might be struggling. You never know how #onesmallact might be the difference between someone having a good day or a bad one.  

We also know Aussies are a generous bunch, and many of our major lottery winners often can’t wait to use their prize to surprise and delight their family, friends and community.  

To help foster a foundation of kindness in our communities, we’re proud to announce a $50,000 donation to The Kindness Factory.   

The money will support the organisation’s education programs in schools and universities and inspire people everywhere to stay connected with others, know when to reach out for help, exercise resilience, and treat themselves, each other, and the planet with dignity and respect. 

The Kindness Factory started from one person’s incredible story of courage, hope and adversity, and has now become a global kindness movement, touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life.  

Chief Executive Officer Kath Koschel said the $50,000 donation was a fantastic boost that would help spread the Factory’s positive impact.   

“This specific donation means a great deal to the growth and sustainability of The Kindness Factory into the future,” she said. 

“This entire movement started off the back of one small act of kindness, and we are incredibly proud of the work that we are doing and will continue to do.  

“None of this would be possible without the generosity of our partners, and we are so thrilled to be working with The Lott to make kindness more accessible to all of Australia.” 

In the lead up to World Kindness Day on Saturday 13 November, you can get involved by doing a small act for someone else.
