Welcome to Bluetiful…Celebrating Kindness Leaders podcast. On this podcast, you will hear fantastic uplifting stories of people who have either personally gone through a challenge or tragedy or helped someone else who has, and turned the “blue” into something “bluetiful.” The Kindness Leaders I have chosen are diverse. The stories they tell are all very different. Some have lost children. Some have lost parents. Some have had severe health issues. Some are advocating for someone else. Some have had life-changing accidents. Some do it at their job every day. The similarity is that no matter what their stories are, they have made something “blue” into something “bluetiful.” I hope you enjoy the show!
