When we first put these words on a t-shirt two years ago, we had no idea of the impact the phrase would have on others. Something magical happens when someone reads the words on your shirt, internalizes the message, and smiles. And you know that they “get it.” The words “Do Good. Be Kind.” can change the course of someone’s day, week, maybe even life. The words are positive, bright, hopeful. It’s like a reminder that we are all just humans trying to do our best in this crazy world – and we aren’t alone!
One of our favorite places to wear our Do Good. Be Kind. gear is at the airport while traveling. Can you think of a more stressful place?? We always travel with a stack of stickers to hand out to passengers, airline employees, or anyone who notices the words on our shirt, looks us in the eye, and smiles. Recently, we have had others share their experience with this as well, and we wanted to share with you the magic that can happen when the words Do Good. Be Kind. soften the space between two strangers and brings a bit of familiar light into someone’s day. Read on!

Today on our flight from San Diego to Minneapolis, we made friends with the pilots and flight attendants, Angie and Alena. Angie was exceptionally kind to us so it prompted me to give her a little DGBK swag bag I had with me. She was elated! In true Mihail form, he wanted to keep the momentum going so he proceeded to spread kindness throughout the aircraft by handing out Do Good. Be Kind. stickers to all the aisle passengers on the flight. (Sorry you middle and window seat people!). Good thing I carry an ample supply whenever we travel!
The message is always so well received. Our flight was awesome, largely in part due to the overt kindness of Angie and Alena. Way to go Alaska Airlines! (Flight 1950). I hope you know what gems you have on board!!!
We figured out that we’ll see each other again on the return flight so I promised to bring some Greek treats on the way home!“
