Sunshine People was set up to highlight the changes in our society and the need to stay connected through kindness. It has never been as important in our education and leadership with the shift towards technology to keep human connection at the forefront of our conversations.
Set up after her partner died on a charity cycle challenge the founder, Nahla Summers completes a challenge each year and asks people to show their support not by donating money to a charity but by doing an act of kindness for a stranger instead.
She had started by doing smaller challenges just asking her friends and family to do the acts of kindness. What started to emerge was a wave of kindness stories that was changing hearts and minds. Ultimately, changing the way people saw the world and it inspired her to keep going and make her challenges even bigger.
In 2018 Nahla cycled 3,000 miles across America after purchasing her bike just six weeks prior. She is a woman who understand the power of the mind and a ‘can do’ attitude.
2019 she walked from Swanage, Dorset to Gretna Green 500 miles visiting schools along the way promoting kindness through speaking, workshops and more sunshine people events. She promotes the ties that kindness and a higher emotional intelligence and wellbeing has on society and wants to promote this from the bottom up.
2020 will see Nahla take on 20 challenges in 20 countries. With a dedicated social media team and cinematographer on board. A film will be produced and you will be able to follow the progress and antics of the challenges through social media.
All the challenges will be based on the principal of kindness. Feed 100 people with £10, a day of free listening, give 100 hugs, build a well and so on. The idea is start the biggest global movement towards kindness.
