Featured Session: The Power of Connection through Kindness

Mar 13, 2020 | 12:30pm – 1:30pm


After traveling to over 100 countries and to every continent, Leon Logothetis discovered the essence of humanity. We are essentially all the same.

When we begin to compare each other by our many similarities instead of our differences, we start building stronger bonds to each other, and ourselves. The way we get to this state of being is by being actively kind and displaying empathy. As a social experiment to show the raw & unique power of kindness, Leon created the hit Netflix series "The Kindness Diaries.” The show follows Leon as he travels around the globe with no money, relying entirely on the kindness of strangers. When he meets people who show exceptional kindness, Leon repays them with a life-changing gift.
