NEWORT BEACH — As a child, Angie Wisdom used to tie a string around her finger to remember simple things like homework assignments and household chores.
And now into adulthood, the string has been replaced by an elegant bow set in white gold. The ring, which adorns her right hand, holds an even simpler message — to be kind, wherever and whenever possible.
"Everyone is capable of being kind — being kind is the easy part," the 37-year-old Costa Mesa resident said. "It's the remembering to be kind every day that is the hard part."
Last week, Wisdom launched her website, AReminderToBeKinder.com, to help spread her message of spreading kindness.
The site sells silver and gold rings, $30 to $160, that when worn will act as both a reminder to the wearer and as a call to action to those who see the symbol, Wisdom said.
More than a third of the proceeds from the rings will go to supporting various charities and local schools.
