Ripple of Kindness co-founders Barbara White and Mary-Anne Frith will talk about how things started almost 5 years ago and what inspired them to start this kindness journey together. They will talk about how it works and how anyone can get involved and outline all past recipients to date showing funds received and focus on some of the projects that have been done that impact our community. They will talk about the way this group has resonated with so many local women with little time commitment and huge impact and how Ripple of Kindness has spread to other communities with chapters in Orillia, Muskoka and London.

What is Ripple of Kindness? - ROK is a growing group of inclusive women in the community that pledge to donate 400.00 per year split between 4 charities.  These charities are nominated and voted on by the membership with a collective donation for the greater good of the organization and community.

Barbara White

Community minded and always trying to lead with kindness, Barbara helped to co-found Ripple of Kindness in 2016 so that more like minded women could come together with greater impact.  Since then, Ripple of Kindness has donated back into the community over $370,000.  They have now three chapters in Orillia, Muskoka and London who are rippling kindness in their communities.

Working alongside her husband since 1988 in their group of companies,  Barbara chose to focus on community when they moved to Barrie in 1992.  Their company, Jeff White Group donates 12 month property maintenance to Gilda’s Club, Hospice Simcoe and the O.S.P.C.A.  Jeff’s Junk is also working closely with Redwood Homes/Furniture Bank ensuring everyone has gently used furniture in their homes. 

Barbara founded and ran Prom Night for Cancer, a third party fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in 2008 and over the 10 year period raised over $ 150,000.00.  Other Community Outreach and Sponsorships that Barbara is involved with include the Barrie Food Bank, Hospice Simcoe, Canadian Mental Health Organization and Redwood Park Communties to name a few.

Barbara is serving her second term on the Board of Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka and just finished as Chair for the past two years.  She also has just joined the board of the Barrie Community Foundation.   Rotary International has recognized Barbara’s dedication to volunteerism by awarding her with the “Paul Harris Fellowship Award” from two different clubs in Barrie.  She recently was awarded the Ontario 150 by Anne Hogarth for her contribution in Simcoe County and received the first "Heart and Soul" award of Barrie from the Barrie Chamber of Commerce.  Ripple of Kindness was the recipient of the 2019 Barrie Business Awards for Not-For-Profit or Charitable Organization.

Barbara loves spending time with here children, walking the dogs and playing golf with her friends.
