To spark change for a kind humankind

What is Kindling?

Kindling is a 501c3 nonprofit that ignites change by sharing good news and connecting people with opportunities to build a more sustainable, equitable, and prosperous future for all.

We cultivate the world’s largest database of social change milestones, documenting human progress and moments of genius from prehistory to the present. Our global map shows that change is not only possible, but happening all around us every day. By reminding the world that humanity is beautiful, we transform cynicism and despair into possibility and action.
