Kindness makes a difference

About Kendall

Kendall was diagnosed in 2015 with ADHD and in 2021 with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder, recurrent, moderate. She wanted to beat this and to be happy, she worked hard at group and individual therapy and was planning for the future. Unexpectedly on October 11, 2021 she lost her battle to suicide.

Take your kindness online

From scrolling social media to attending virtual meetings, our lives are more online today than ever and unfortunately it’s even easier to hurt someone’s feelings when you’re hiding behind a screen.  Take your kindness online and remember there is a person behind that email, social profile, or text.

Kindness makes a difference

A smile in the hall, an invitation to lunch, or a quick call just to say hello.  Being kind is easy, but often overlooked in our busy everyday lives, yet it makes such a difference… Hug your loved ones and friends, be kind to others and take time to be present in the moment. Take care of yourself and ask for help if you need it.

Random Acts of Kindness matter

On the 12th of each month, we will be honoring and remembering Kendall for all the cookies she loved to bake and give out to her family & friends. Please share a dozen with your family, friends, teacher, neighbor, police officer, or whoever you choose, the more the better!

Spread kindness the 12th of every month

Kendall’s Kindness has been established in memory of our beautiful blue eyed girl Kendall Maffia. Kendall was a kind, thoughtful, funny, smart and a talented young woman.  She loved to be creative, loved to listen to all kinds of music, and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. 

We all need to be present in the moment, limit our social media and enjoy our time with each other.  We are asking that on the 12th of every month, in honor of Kendall’s birthday on June 12, 2000, you do an act of kindness.
