Matt Kurtz inspires me to be a better person.

My son, Matt, was an incredibly amazing human being.  His charismatic charm, bright beaming smile, and genuine goodness drew everyone he met to him. He was contagiously happy, with a huge capacity for optimism and compassion. You can read more about him and how in his short 32 years he impacted more lives than most people do in a lifetime. He inspires me to be a better person. Maybe he will inspire you too. His kindness will ripple on forever.  –  Jackie Kurtz  

In this blog I’ll share stories that inspire, make you think, cause concern and make you laugh.  ENJOY.

I’d appreciate it if you would help me get the word out about the Matt Kurtz Kindness Award of $250 (nominate someone who inspires you) and the Matt Kurtz Kindness Grant of $250 (submit an act of kindness you would do with $250).
