Susan and Morgan Guess, co-founders of the Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation, will join kindness leaders from around the country for KindnessCollective on April 20-22 in Half Moon Bay, California.
KindnessEvolution, who is sponsoring the conference, was formed to more fully integrate kindness, compassion and generosity into every aspect of American culture. Focusing on youth and young adults, the organization will be seeding change that will have a fundamental impact on the future leaders of our nation.
Wendi Gilbert, founder and chief visionary officer for KindnessEvolution, invited a select group of kindness leaders to gather for an intensive session with a goal of powering a positive cultural shift in the United States.
“What Morgan has been able to accomplish, with the support of her mom, is an example of the power of one person to make a big difference and to use ones voice for GOOD,!” said Gilbert “We are so thrilled to have Morgan represented as one of our nation’s youth kindness leaders and are looking forward to her adding her voice to the collective conversation of exponentially powering a positive shift in our nation.”
“There is a national crisis of spirit,” Gilbert said. “By concentrating on fostering the values of compassion, generosity, empathy and being of service in schools, camps, youth groups, after school programs, etc., we will help parents, teachers and program leaders to educate, inspire and train a new generation of compassionate, socially-minded, community-oriented citizens.”
The Guesses are excited to participate because of the conference’s focus on involving youth in creating a kinder world. “My mom and I have taken a stand for kindness and we can’t wait to join others who are committed to the same goal of providing youth the tools they need to be the bold and kind leaders of tomorrow,” said Morgan.
