Hi!  I'm Lee Lemke, founder and executive director of World Nice.  I have spent more than 25 years teaching the power of positive reinforcement and its long range effects.  I have been serving and working with people of all ages in the upper Midwest, USA, through nonprofits for 30 years, helping those in need, the poor, and the disadvantaged.

​World Nice helps those doing great deeds in your community.  Nominate someone you know who is doing exceptional work with limited resources.  Our goal is to assist them with their mission.  Let us add your story to the World Nice page.  Here everyone can be inspired when they most need a lift.
