The Kindness Bus

Bob Votruba lives in converted bus, a response to a mass shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007. Instead of falling into fear and hate, Bob decided to fight hate with kindness. He bought an old school bus, sold everything, and hit the road. His goal? To commit one million acts of kindness in his lifetime. Bob's particular focus is on ending bullying and associated adolescent suicides, but he encourages everyone to take up whatever cause matters to them. He believes that sending out positive energy changes the world around us. It doesn't matter the type of kindness someone puts out into the world - anything from a smile at a stranger, to donating time and money, to building homes. No gift is too big or too small.
