Welcome to the Kindness Bug
The Kindness Bug helps encourage spreading Random Acts of Kindness. Artist Brenda McFadden created the line with the idea of passing an item around, and recording how far it can travel. After much thought, Brenda wanted to see if something positive could happen each time the item was passed. That is when the concept of the Kindness Bug began. After a lot of hard work, Brenda developed the first Kindness Bug product, 4 of the Bug Figurines; Marcus the Monarch, Buddy the Bumblebee, Leo the Lightning Bug and Lola the Ladybug. Each bug is individually numbered. This allows people to register their bug number on the website, and then later go back and see where it has traveled and what acts of kindness has been shown.
Since Brenda has developed the line, she has added 4 more Kindness Bug Characters, Children’s Books, Kindness Bug Songs, and other product. Brenda’s latest item is the new Caterpillar/Butterfly Plush Toy. It’s 2 bugs in 1 toy. The Plush is Marcus the Caterpillar. It unzips, and turns inside-out, changing into Marcus the Monarch. After a successful Kickstarter Campaign, Brenda was able to produce the first shipment of the Plush Toy, and it is now available.
Many wonderful stories have developed from the Kindness Bug line. You can read the ones that were sent to us by going to the Bug Tracker. We hope it will inspire you to come up with your own ideas on how to spread the Kindness Bug.
The Kindness Bug… It’s the bug you want to catch!
