What is Kindea?

Kindea makes it easy and fun for people around the world to share and find ideas for acts of kindness.

 

Our Vision

Kindea’s mission is to expand, celebrate, and inspire acts of kindness and thoughtfulness around the world. We would love for Kindea to one day generate revenue for the charities that are important to its users.

 

What is a Kindea page?

A Kindea page is a recipe for a unique and creative act of kindness. Each page gives a brief description of anything that a Kindea user thinks would help spread a little kindness and care to others. Kindea pages describe clever gifts, fundraising ideas, ways to say thank you to soldiers, casseroles to bring to families with new babies, fun family traditions, childrens’ art projects to give to grandparents, and countless other ideas that brighten our lives.

 

How do I use a Kindea page?

Kindea pages work best when they are used for inspiration. Oprah once emphasized that “love is in the details” (I think she might have been quoting Colin Cowie – the famous design expert and event planner.) Kindea pages can help to give you inspiration for something that you want to do for someone and then you can add the individualized details that will really make your action special.

For example, a Kindea page might inspire you to make a personalized gift basket for a friend who is about to start a round of chemotherapy. The Kindea page will offer some great ideas for things that could be useful to your friend, but only you will know the “details”… like your friend’s favorite color is green, she is a huge fan of Goldie Hawn movies, she doesn’t like anything flavored like bananas, she once told you that the smell of a new box of crayons always makes her smile, she can never get enough muscle car magazines, etc.  These are just a few examples of the types of loving details that, if you find a way to incorporate them into your basket, will make it really special.

 

Why does Kindea use ratings?

Feedback is an important part of Kindea. Some Kindea pages might not seem like very good or exciting ideas on the surface, but they might have a huge impact when actually put into action. And some ideas might look fantastic on a Kindea page, but users might have a different experience when they attempt to use the idea in real life.

As Kindea continues to grow with more and more Kindea pages, it will become increasingly important for visitors to be able to sift through all of the inspiration and find the pages that are truly useful to them. Ratings are just one helpful way for Kindea users to be able to sort and manipulate Kindea’s many pages so that they can find what they need.
