Overview


In August of 2002 four 20-something friends from Victoria packed a motor home and embarked upon a three-month non-profit marathon known coast to coast as The Extreme Kindness Tour. Their mission: to commit as many random acts of kindness in as many Canadian communities as possible. From mile zero to St. John’s, the boys staffed soup kitchens, broke horses, roofed houses, delivered flowers, sang songs, visited hospitals, raised funds, and staged rallies determined to make someone’s day and encourage them to Pay It Forward, connecting the world through kindness. The crew originally documented their transCanadian adventures on a global Web show at extremekindness.com; here they offer testimonials, resources, and inspiration for those ready to hit the road with kind acts of their own.

Editorial Reviews

Vancouver Sun
Make someone happy. Val Litwin, Brad Strokes, Erik Hanson and Chris Bratseth, the twentysomething guys who did an Extreme Kindness Tour across Canada two years ago, have written a book about their exploits...
Globe and Mail
Even the jaded should find these four remarkable young people an inspiration if the story doesn't shame them.
