Community Workshop

Kindness for the Holidays

Portland, November 11

In partnership with the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine, we are offering a morning workshop for participants to explore kindness practices for the holidays, both individual and collective, with a particular focus on interfaith and spiritual values. Click here for more info. 


In these difficult times, when loneliness is epidemic, when political differences seem to be tearing our country and communities apart, when the future seems increasingly uncertain, is there any doubt we could all use a bit more kindness? 


Welcome to AOK Maine. We are a new non-profit with the goal of bringing more kindness into our lives here in Maine. We want to make kindness easier, make kindness a habit, make kindness a movement!


Kindness is about more than just being nice - kindness is about action. Kindness is about how we treat others and how we treat ourselves. Sometimes kindness is the most courageous thing we can do.

Here at Acts of Kindness Maine, we're creating activities to increase kindness in all aspects of life in Maine:

Kindness in the workplace

Kindness at home

Kindness in politics

Kindness in the schools

Kindness online

Kindness in our neighborhoods
