We’ve had a great month celebrating kindness thanks to this year’s sponsor, City Wide Facility Solutions. Today, Dr. Michelle Robin welcomes Andrea Allison-Putman and Lori Bennett on the show to share their experience participating in the 31-Day Kindness Campaign. Join us to hear about the power of kindness and what they have learned kindness really looks likes in our everyday lives. Sometimes kindness can be as simple as listening with an open heart.
