Leon Logothetis had it all—prestigious job, money, a home, a beautiful girlfriend, and a friendly dog – but he traded it all in to live his dreams. His inner rebel, the part of him that yearns to follow his dreams, once again wanted to feel the magic of the human experience, but this time by connecting with people through the language of kindness.
It prompted him to travel the world relying solely on the kindness and generosity of strangers. And now, he is giving back.

Logothetis, a global adventurer, motivational speaker, philanthropist, author, and host of National Geographic’s hit series Amazing Adventures of a Nobody, announced the streaming version of his best-selling book The Kindness Diaries: One Man’s Quest to Ignite Good Will and Transform Lives Around the World. In this 13-part Netflix series, Logothetis lives his mission of giving back to those who gave of themselves.
Leon travels around the world on his yellow motorbike called the Kindness One. He relies entirely on the kindness of strangers as he gives back to unsuspecting good Samaritans along the way. During the trip, Leon discovers that being ‘seen’ is the most powerful gift people can give others.
During his six-month global adventure, Leon traveled to 20 countries with no food and no pre-planned accommodations. He then discovers that people are so open to helping those in need; all one must do is open their heart. For example, in Pittsburgh, he met a homeless man named Tony who had nothing but a bag of clothes. He took Leon in, fed him, gave him a place to stay and protected him through the night. The experience touched Leon’s heart – if a man with nothing could give so much from his heart, how could he ever repay him?
You’ll have to watch the show to find out.
“We hear about all the negative things happening out there,” says Leon, “but there is so much kindness out there as well that we don’t ever hear about.”
The Kindness Diaries Netflix series proves that the magic of kindness is what makes the world go around and that kindness never goes out of style. It demonstrates that true wealth is in our hearts, not in our wallets.
