The idea behind Be Kind Be Generous is to promote writing and video that inspires people. Initially, just named K&G (the initials of two best friends) with each animal representing each friend favorite animal. Upon creating the Logo, the discovery of a Venezuelan folk tale and video of the tale told by David Heathfield added meaning to the already significant project, quickly becoming a Movement.
Be Kind Be Generous is a movement. A quest to bring compassion to the world. The T-Shirts sold on the site are a shared reminder of what it is to be human and the humanity that dwells inside of us all. The T-Shirts and logo represent a story of a Venezuelan folk tale that depicts moralistic values, giving the different animals (the monkey, dog, and Panther) a deeper meaning. Yet, THE STORY goes beyond our T-Shirts. It represents what Be Kind Be Generous is about. First off, we must examine the two words kind and generous. Both words go hand in hand, but are usually perceived as the need to give materialistic possession. Being kind or generous is rooted deeper than materialistic possession, money or anything of that nature. It deals with the side of us as humans that is embedded in us to care, share, and love. To go in depth, using the metaphor "if you give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a lifetime" is a superb illustration of a form of generosity and kindness. The idea of teaching or the spreading of ideas that have an everlasting impact is exactly the goal and concept Be Kind Be Generous represents.
