“Our personal ripple effect is the power of one generating hope and change in others for a better world.”
—Laurie Buchanan, PhD
Who we are
Waves of Goodness is a private foundation committed to sharing goodness on a worldwide scale. Each act of kindness has the potential to create a desire in others to act with equal kindness, one good act leading to another, and another, and another.
Yes, you have the ability to influence the world. With a single kind act. To show you, we created a way to track your service with wavecoins.
One wavecoin leads to one kind act. Pass the coin on, and the process repeats itself. After the coin has left your hand, continue choosing one way to give of yourself each week. When each of us commit to continual kindness, we become the change we seek.
Look what we can accomplish in one year—2,772,536 acts of kindness.
Spreading across the world, one wave at a time.
We have created 1,000 copper; 1,000 silver; and 12 exclusive gold wavecoins. Each is a symbol of your ability to impact the world for the better. It’s not about which one you get, it’s about the kindness you give. We know that the value of your service comes from the heart.
