EVERETT, WA – If you’re looking for inspiration on finding and creating more kindness in the world, join Everett Public Library at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8 for a free online program.  Donna Cameron, author of “The Year of Living Kindly,” will chat with Live in Everett co-founder and CEO Garret Hunt. They’ll share ideas and talk about the choices that will change your life and the world around you!   

Snohomish County resident Donna Cameron considered herself a reasonably nice person (with occasional lapses into crankiness), but she knew that true kindness was a step above. Donna embarked on a year of living kindlyand she learned that it takes practice, patience, understanding, and a sense of humor. She shared her wisdom in her 2018 book “A Year of Living Kindly: Choices that Will Change Your Life and the World Around You.” 

Donna Cameron will be joined in conversation with Garret Hunt, co-founder and CEO of Live in Everett. Garret is a former Realtor/entrepreneur turned life coach and wholeness junkie. He digs reading, skateboarding, meditation and letting his kiddo guide family adventures. 

Together, Donna and Garret will discuss what it means to live kindly. They’ll invite you to engage in conversation and lead you in a thought exercise as you set your intention to make 2021 your kindest year yet.  

This program is free and open to the public. It will be presented live on Crowdcast and will be available again for later viewing. Save your spot for the event at
