Two Men Help Make Pittsburgh Kindest City
Two friends team up and launch a citywide effort to convince everyone to be kind to others, every day!
When World Kindness Day came around five years ago, friends Kevin Bright and Bert Dorazio decided to team up and do an act of kindness together. On November 13, they went to the Giant Eagle on Pittsburgh's Southside and bought a woman's groceries, just in time for the holidays. Then they used social media to invite friends to do an act of kindness too. Little did they know that five years later they would be leading a non-profit, the Pittsburgh Kindness Initiative , with thousands of kindness "followers" all over the world who make it their mission to do something nice for someone else every day.
See what happened when Sparkt let the guys loose in Market Square with a fist full of lottery tickets to find some people who needed a little kindness!
Bert still gets a kick out of leaving change at parking meters and pay stations to pay for the next person's parking.
