Praise for Kindness Boomerang

"We are powerful beyond measure when we are kind—when, through simple kind acts extended to others we help a fellow human feel better and they in turn pay it forward. No one knows this better than kindness guru Orly Wahba. Her inspiring daily guide Kindness Boomerang is the tool we all need to tap into our goodness, unlock our kindness, and unleash that kind self upon a suffering world."
-Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Raise an Adult

Kindness Boomerang is filled with fun tips and ideas for finding happiness in everyday activities.”

It always comes back to you and that is beautiful."
