The medical profession, like many others, undervalues women and obsesses about making women work full time and carry the same burden as men. Yet, as this article shows, there is a ton of value in respecting the role of women in the medical profession. There is also a ton of value to society to not force women to sacrifice their role as parents. We need to think more holistically, flexibly and creatively about this.

KIND played a part in a love story!

Boston Globe:  Finding Love in the Unlikeliest of Places

By Eric Moskowitz

Suffice it to say, it was not where Melissa Ananias or Peter Butler expected to find love — or, for that matter, where anyone has expected to find it. Ever.

On that Tuesday morning, two years ago in October, Melissa arrived uncharacteristically early. Pete, uncharacteristically, cut it close.

She was 45 and had been divorced eight years, a single mother from Needham with two daughters in elementary school. Match.com, JDate, blind dates, she had tried them all, dismissing most guys quickly, not one of them ever reaching the point of meeting her girls.

Doniece Sandoval repurposes transportation buses into showers & toilets on wheels, and through her organization Lava Mae, she provides mobile showers and other services to San Francisco’s homeless. Doniece demonstrates what she calls ‘Radical Hospitality’, explaining that “the way that you serve people is as important as the service itself.” I couldn’t agree more, and I’m inspired by the kindness and respect with which Doniece and her team care for their community.
We are proud to award Doniece with the #KINDPeople grand prize to enable her to continue her important work.
