Send a Kindness Gram

Spiral Wishing Well Seed Grant Program

ProjectKindness.org is a global organization that exists to enhance the lives of children and families in a variety of ways. It is funded by anonymous entrepreneurs and corporate leaders.

Its original initiative has been providing a simple way to spread joy through the sending of online encouragement in the form of "Kindness Grams".


A project announced for 2007 is to provide initial seed funding for Spiral Wishing Wells that are placed in stores and other retail locations where they raise money for a variety of non-profit charities and other projects.

These devices have raised over $200 million for charities around the world over the past few years without requiring the difficult task of organizing volunteer employees to perform extra work, and without "soliciting" customers, both of which are very appealing to stores.

Because of their successful track record, ProjectKindness.org has chosen to help overcome the initial barrier of the cost of the devices by providing these interest-free Seed Grants.

Said payments are due on a monthly basis, payable by the 5th of the month for the preceding month’s revenue by a check payable to ProjectKindness.org. Simple payment coupons will be supplied by ProjectKindness.org that show the location, the amount collected and submitted, and the remaining balance for each particular Well.

3) It is this repayment that will allow ProjectKindness.org to continue to help other organizations to acquire and place Wells, and the Applicant understands and agrees that it is an obligation, not an optional choice.

4) After the Grant has been repaid with the initial proceeds, 100% of the revenue received into the Well will be given to a non-profit organization or approved project.

If the Wells are returned, any previously-received payments will be forfeited. Therefore, it is in the best interests of all parties that this option not be used.
