You don’t have to look like someone else to love them.” “I want to see a revolution of kindness, because what happens is, when you’re kind and you give, it’s infectious. You give one time, and it’s a great feeling and you want to do it again and again.” “There are amazing people in this world that just need an opportunity.” “If there’s not someone in your social circle who doesn’t look like you, then shame on you.” Engage with Leigh Anne Tuohy #theNSLS Leigh Anne Tuohy was made famous in Michael Lewis’ best-selling novel The Blind Side.
