Moore Love’s “Pass It On” began in 2013 as a program to encourage kindness in schools, and throughout communities. The initiative demonstrates that “kindness is catching” by providing students with kindness cards that they share when they perform a random act of kindness, with the goal of starting a chain reaction.

The program honors Ella Moore, the foundation’s namesake, by furthering her mission to spread joy and self-worth.
