Because kindness isn't the opposite of success. It's the definition.
Research shows that those who are treated kindly are more optimistic, better at solving problems, and more likely to be kind to others. Optimistic people are more likely to stay healthy, be creative, and are generally more successful than their realist counterparts.
Companies with kinder cultures are more successful.
When teams are kind to each other, when employees see each other based on their commonalities, when people are genuinely motivated to show appreciation and kindness to their co-workers, companies thrive.
Kindness creates optimism. Optimism allows people to be more open to out-of-the-box thinking, makes them more hopeful, helps them handle stress better, keeps them healthier, and makes them more likely to be successful in work, in family, and in life.

"I started this organization because I fundamentally believe that people are GOOD. I want to help everyone recognize that there is a need for genuine human kindness everywhere. It isnt' based on where you live or work. It doesn't matter how much money you have or don't have. It doesn't matter what you look like, who you voted for, or how you worship. Every single one of us needs it. And with small, simple acts of love, I genuinely believe we have the ability to change the world. So let's get out there and do some GOOD."
