  • This week’s Kindness Challenge comes directly from the comedian Ellen DeGenres:  Be funny but be kind.  Ellen states, “Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else's expense. And I find that that's just a form of bullying in a major way. So I want to be an example that you can be funny and be kind, and make people laugh without hurting somebody else's feelings.”.
