Published under Education/Raising Children, Empatico Jan 17, 2019

I get to meet a lot of interesting people in my line of work, but this was a new one for me! Daniel Puder (undefeated MMA fighter) came by this week to discuss how to instill kindness and empathy in the next generation – and to teach me some new moves! :)

What makes us KIND

Published under KIND Dec 14, 2018

As I told our team at our NY holiday party last night, what makes me so proud of the KIND Snacks team is not just what they’re building, but how they are doing it. From the passion that the team brings to their work and the care that they demonstrate for one another, I feel grateful to learn from them each day.

Published under Empatico Nov 09, 2018

I got to kick off my week with a visit with the Empatico team. In case you’re not familiar with it, Empatico, an initiative of The KIND Foundation, is a new free tool for teachers to connect their classrooms with other classrooms around the world. It is the most important thing that I’ve been involved in founding because it has the potential to impact tens of millions of children. Through Empatico interactions, kids learn how to celebrate what they have in common as well as their differences. Armed with the tools to work with people who are different from them, these kids will be better off – but moreover, our world will be a better world. I’m so proud of what this team is building, and they’re just getting started.

#Ivoted

Published under United States Nov 06, 2018

As a Mexican immigrant, and as the son of a Holocaust survivor who was liberated by American soldiers, I have a deep appreciation for our democratic process. I do not take this right for granted.

Happy Halloween

Published under Introspection Nov 01, 2018

Best Halloween Costume goes to the team at Backman Elementary of Salt Lake City School District. They dressed up as KIND Snacks to encourage kindness in their community. I love it! And a big shoutout to Keith McKeown for his craftsmanship.

I loved comparing notes on the highs and lows of  entrepreneurship with one of the best – Ron Shaich, founder of Panera Bread. We found so many parallels in our journeys.

Time to Vote

Published under United States Sep 24, 2018

he U.S. has one of the lowest voter turnout rates in the developed world, and one of the most common reasons that people give for not voting is an inflexible work schedule. This Election Day, KIND Snacks is proud to participate in the #TimetoVote campaign. On November 6, no meetings or conference calls will be held at KIND after 3pm to create time for our team members to exercise their right to vote.
