Kevin Tuerff (Author & Come From Away’s Real Life Kevin T) Pays It Forward

In This Episode

Kevin Tuerff, Come From Away’s Real-Life Kevin T, joins the Art of Kindness with Robert Peterpaul podcast to discuss his charity Pay It Forward 9/11’s special 11 Days of Kindness campaign.

Kevin Teurff inspired one of the characters featured in the hit musical Come From Away. As you see in the musical, Kevin was one of the thousands of refugees stranded in Gander on September 11, 2001 after US airspace closed. Kevin took his experience there and poured it into a book called Channel of Peace: Stranded in Gander on 9/11, which you can buy now. He also used it to found the charity Pay It Forward 9/11, a kindness movement that not only pays it forward, but pays tribute to lives lost in the terrorist attacks. Kevin is thrilled to once again be launching his “11 Days of Kindness” campaign TODAY, September 1. This initiative encourages people around the world to perform acts of kindness by September 11th.
