It’s the golden rule… BE NICE! Is this something you teach your kids? To you also practice what you preach? How about making a commitment to spread the words to others? This is just what ChooseToBeNice.com is doing.
Choose To Be Nice is a long time coming! Dina Creiger, Founder, kicked around the crazy idea of encouraging and inspiring kindness for a couple of years. An unexpected tragedy, the Boston Marathon Bombings, compelled her to finally move forward. The mission of Choose To Be Nice is very simple. We want to inspire, promote and encourage kindness whenever and wherever possible.
I was thrilled to try out a shirt to see what kinds of reactions I got around town. For the most part, I got the thumbs up or a “nice shirt” compliment. A few folks asked where they could get one and I told them about the Choose to be Nice movement. Other than actually wearing the shirt, I tried to be more mindful of situations where I could choose to respond in with kindness. I also told my children about the movement. My daughter said, “Mommy, I was extra nice to everyone today.” I told her to think about doing that every day.

I promise to help spread kindness wherever and whenever possible. And to the very best of my ability, I’ll be nice to those with whom I come into contact on a daily basis. If you agree, go to ChooseToBeNice.com and fill out the “make the promise form.” I did!
