Matt Callanan

Matt is the Founder of the 'We Make Good Happen' movement.  After he met Bill Murray in George Clooney's house (yup, really), he was inspired to achieve 403 good deeds to impact 12,000 people.

One of his good deeds went viral and so was born the #Tenner4Good campaign which encourages people to take a tenner from their wallet, think what good they could do with the money, and then go out and spread some kindness in their community.

The Tenner4Good idea has now spread with people doing acts of kindness with a tenner, in their local currency, from American to Australia.

Matt, a former DJ, is now a film maker in his own video production company, We Make Film Happen.

“I’d like to give back” is something people often say.  Giving makes you feel good; it’s very simple. Meet Matt Callanan.  When Matt won £20 on a scratch card, he decided to share his good fortune and buy a Big Issue seller some food.  And so began the #WeMakeGoodHappen & #Tenner4Good movement.

Kind is...

Deciding to forgive
And say thank you
Kind chooses to listen
And learn
Kind isn’t always nice
It can be tough
Kind can teach us
And help us heal
Kind is human
It is us and we
And you and me

We’re so happy to be running our Kindness Workshops face-to-face (Virtual Workshops will continue). We teach kids about the importance of kindness, the science of kindness & the impact it has on our health. Request a free workshop at

What’s the UK government’s plastic policy? Dump it on other countries! Less than 10% of our plastic recycling is actually recycled in the UK.
The rest is sent overseas where it’s often burned or dumped, fuelling health and wildlife emergencies.
