There is kindness to be found in the city of St. Louis. Janet, who works in an early childhood setting, experienced kindness by way of her grandfather when she was a child. She believes that all children want is to be loved and to have someone who is happy that you’re there, which remains true even after you grow up. The joy of working with kids is sometimes one of the only things that gets her up and going. Janet believes that she has to work hard and try the best she can—which she does by bestowing love and kindness to the kids she adores by trying to be the kind of teacher to them that she always wanted to have. Imagine her joy at receiving $1000 to treat herself to a well-deserved break. “I’ve been asking God for some signs, to help me. Thank you”

Trivago and I share the goal of starting a contagious chain reaction of kind acts. People in need and those who give back should be recognized. I’m asking you to #GoBeKind by performing your own acts of kindness and sharing them on social media with the #GoBeKind tag. I’ll be watching and re-posting the best stories.
Together, we’re making the world a kinder place—I thank you for all your support.
