Kindness is always possible & hope is always an option.

Remember - It is up to us to be the change.


On a tour stop in Cleveland during the summer of 2012, my friend, Joe and I decided that we could start our own political party/religion called 'Just Be Nice'. So here it is. The official site of the Just Be Nice party.

Everyone is welcome and we energetically welcome everyone.

We work together to make this world a better place by getting our hands dirty, and supporting organizations that are doing incredible work.

To join in on a Just Be Nice project and get our updates and alerts, please sign up for our list:
