Another awesome sibling duo join Anitha to share their story of Kindness. Ten-year old John Paul and eight-year old Juliana founded Stuffies 4 Smiles.
What started out in 2019 as a gesture of kindness to a homeless person and their dog has grown into a movement of kindness. In the past three years, John Paul and Juliana have collected stuffed animals, books, backpacks, handmade cards for people and communities in need.
As a thank you for sharing their story, Anitha donated to Happy’s Place, a retirement home for senior dogs. This wonderful not for profit rescues senior dogs. To learn more about the work this kind group of people do, check out their website: https://www.happysplace.ca
It’s hard to believe that Season One of the Kindness Is Everything podcast is over. It has been lovely to hear so many stories of kindness, and to carry forward that kindness by donating to various charities.
In 2021, the podcast shared 34 stories and donated $1400 to charities. Here’s hoping Season Two will be as successful!
To thank everyone for their support, Anitha is joined by a special guest to share a holiday message.

On previous episodes, Anitha has interviewed several kids who have participated in a program called Explorer Hop. This innovative program brings together children of all ages and teaches them to become young entrepreneurs. In addition to learning about the ins and outs of creating a business, such as choosing a name, collaborating with others, and marketing, they are also taught about kindness and giving back. A portion (often 100%) of the funds earned through the business are donated to charities.
On this episode, Anitha talks to the co-creater of Explorer Hop, thirteen-year-old Mirabella Kolodkin. Mirabella shares the inspiration for the business she and her mother created, as well as some of the fun businesses she has been involved with.
As a thank you to Mirabella for sharing her story, Anitha donated to World Wildlife Fund Canada. To learn more about World Wildlife Fund, click here: https://wwf.ca/
