Goodness Gracious is a grass roots campaign, which started in Melbourne in 2018, focused on promoting goodness to spread joy, abundance and hope throughout the world. Our mission is to change the fabric of the world one sprinkle of goodness at a time.
The campaign is about connecting people and communities to make the world a better place. To replace negativity, powerlessness and isolation with feelings of joy, abundance, hope! Acts of goodness are great for everyone and particularly for those in need. We all need extra support at some stage of our lives. When we feel abundant it’s great to share and when we need support it wonderful to receive.
Why a campaign?
A campaign helps to shine a light on goodness and encourages us to actively look for opportunities to share our goodness & generosity. With a focus on goodness we think of others more which ultimately leads to a healthier and happier society.
So how does it work?
You can sprinkle goodness by handing someone a card/envelope, usually accompanied by a gift of some sort. We recommend carrying cards with you to hand out when you feel inspired or see someone in need. Following your intuition is usually the best way. The envelopes make it easier to include money, a written note, voucher or small object as a gift.
We would love you to become a Goodness Gracious Advocate. Cards and envelopes are free for as long as we can support this. Order your cards via messenger on our facebook page or our contact page on this website or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
