Our Purpose

The mission of “#DaretobeKind - a Global Movement” is to reveal how being kind can be used in practical ways to build safer communities and healthier relationships.

Our Part

One person’s purposeful act of Kindness within a 2-mile radius can launch positive and exceptional outcomes within governments, industries, justice systems, and throughout every sector of society. Will you dare to do your part?

Our Purpose

I took my pain and turned it into my greatest strength, which in turn,

made me

the cause's best ally,

and so can you!

About the Founder

Widely known as the Kindness expert, Gabriella van Rij [pronounced “ray”] articulated what would become the Dare To Be Kind - A Global Movement in 2010, while writing her first book With All My Might.


She expanded on the concept during her travels and speaking engagements in 2012 with the Dare To Be Kind campaign, which gathered momentum and is now a full-fledged Kindness movement with Kindness instigators across the globe. In January 2020, Gabriella published Kindness Is A Choice, a down-to-earth guide on how to solve workplace conflicts, relationship friction, and societal issues with this one startling conviction.
