The mission of Pause Be Kind is to deliver moments of inspiration through positivity and kindness. Our founder’s name is Tori. You may know her as “Target Tori,” the retail worker who’s story went viral after being publicly shamed online for not selling a customer a toothbrush for a penny. The customer’s attempt to shame her backfired when people from all over the globe came to her defense. Pause Be Kind was founded for the purpose of giving back as well as bringing attention to the need for pause in our interactions. Something as simple as pausing before speaking or typing can make the biggest difference in our relationships and ultimately our world.
