Happy Activists: Wilson County Kind Makes Kindness Cool

We know that kindness is crucial, but sometimes it seems to be in short supply these days. That’s why Randall Hutto, mayor of Wilson County in Tennessee, has made his office the starting point for spreading kindness. This week, Mayor Hutto and project administrator Susan Shaw explain why they created the initiative known as Wilson County Kind and how it is helping create a happier, kinder place to live.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What inspired Mayor Hutto to create a kindness initiative.
  • Why it’s important for local governments to get behind initiatives like this.
  • How others can start their own kindness initiative.
