Thanks for being part of the Life 88.5 40 day journey of kindness. Our hope is that together we can continue the joy and goodwill that flows so freely during the Christmas season. Each day at around 7:20 am and 5:20 pm, we’ll give you the chance to call 855-474-8850 and share on the air how you’ve extended kindness or what you’ve experienced. Together, we believe we can have a lasting, uplifting impact on all of the KC metro as we make waves into 2020!

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
– Bob Hope

    Babysitting my granddaughters, ages 4 and 6. We just read through each one and where excited to apply them. To share with family and friends to all do together. I plan on calling my daughter’s each night to remind the kids what the next day of “Kindness” is. AND talk about that day’s “Kindness.” THANK YOU

    Each day asking God for a Devine appointment to share the love of Christ. To pray with anyone I come in contact with.

  • Anybody and everybody can go to “” and (it’s free) click to help fight hunger, breast cancer, feed animals, help veterans, autism, alzheimers, diabetes, literacy (give books to kids), and fund the rainforest. I click on each one of these twice a day every day (I have two browsers) because it will only let you do all of them once a day. Besides this I’m always trying to help people in anyway I can (returning shopping carts, picking up trash, and holding doors open for people-especially the elderly and handicapped.)

    I still visit my mother-in-law ‘s nursing home weekly, months after her Home-going. I let my “Home–ies” choose candy from my basket (sugar-free for diabetics), and tell them it’s Special Delivery from Jesus. What a joy to see their eyes light up! I ask if they know that Jesus loves them, and it opens a door to share that love. It’s a blast!

    Saying the name of the clerk at any venue. Surprising way to acknowledge them. A smile is always effective too

  • Charissa says:

    My son was stillborn four years ago this month. Since I would be spending money on him for clothes, toys, etc. if he were here, I donate to various causes throughout the year. This year for his 4th birthday, I went to a bakery and asked if they had a child’s birthday cake waiting to be picked up. The lady behind the counter said they had a birthday cake for a 4 old girl, so I paid for that cake anonymously. Even though my son isn’t here with me, it brings me joy to be able to give back in honor of him.

      Charissa what a beautiful way to honor your son’s memory!
