Join us for an uplifting event at the You Are Beautiful Headquarters (YAB HQ). Kind Words II is all about spreading positivity and love. Come and connect with like-minded individuals who believe in the power of kind words. Expect heartwarming conversations, inspiring stories, and a supportive community. Let’s create a space where kindness shines through and everyone feels valued. Together, we can make a difference. Don’t miss out on this incredible event!

We’ve asked artists, designers, & creatives to share their most inspiring kind words on the walls of our gallery. We couldn’t be more honored to be sharing their work with you! (And we think you’ll certainly want to take home a kind word or two).

Additionally our studio & wood shop will be open to the public. We only do this once a year, so take advantage of getting to take a peek behind the curtain & see where it’s all made! (Heck, there might even be some machines running that you’ll be able to see in action 😉

Want to contribute? 100% of your donation on Eventbrite will go directly towards our 2024 YAB For All Community Installation. Every year, we donate an installation to a community that might not otherwise be able to afford an installation. Learn more & nominate your community here:
