In August of 2002, four twenty-something friends in Canada packed a motor home and embarked upon a three-month nonprofit marathon known coast to coast as The Extreme Kindness Tour. Their mission: to commit as many random acts of kindness in as many communities as possible. This record documents their heartwarming stories of friendship and kindness and provides readers with ways to start their own kindness movements and get involved in their own communities. From mile zero to St. John's, The Extreme Kindness Tour staffed soup kitchens, broke horses, roofed houses, delivered flowers, sang songs, visited hospitals, raised funds, and staged rallies determined to make someone's day and encourage them to "pay it forward," connecting the world through kindness. The crew originally documented their transCanadian adventures on, which offers testimonials, resources, and inspiration for those ready to hit the road with kind acts of their own.
Val Litwin, Chris Bratseth, Brad Stokes, and Erik Hanson speak at conferences, schools, and clubs about the Kindness revolution. They all live in Victoria, British Columbia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Book, Awesome Message This is a book that everyone will benefit from reading. The message is clear and well written, we are not alone, we are all a part of a much larger community and we all need each other. The beauty of this book is that it doesn't cram the message down your throat or guilt you in to doing something. Since reading this book I feel empowered to make a difference. To take time and to make effort with everyone I come in contact with on a day to day basis. I hope that many people will read this book and grasp, through the Kindness Crew's experiences exactly how easy it is to make a difference in both your own life and someone else's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wonderful Kindess Crew I truly have to say that this book is one of the most rewarding books i've ever read. It taught me new ways to help pay it forward, and to show kindness. I really wish the writers of this book would come around the victoria area again, as I saw them the first time near Much Music. I helped them give out Loonies. It was the most wondeful experience i've ever had, and I feel very grateful to have met people so kind and generous. Buy and Read the book! The Kindness Crew are Amazing! - Uvic Student
