Robbinsdale Nonprofit Hosts Virtual Kindness Relay This Weekend
A Robbinsdale nonprofit is hosting its 3rd annual Kindness Relay this Sunday. Print the Love was founded in 2015 by Ceallaigh Anderson Smart.
Smart travels across the world to snap photos of people who might not have access to photos. These people get to keep the photos taken of them. This simple act of kindness is how Smart uplifts others.
Now, Smart is encouraging others to do the same through her annual Kindness Relay events.
About 50 groups will spread kindness in their communities Sunday. Participants already received assembled kits with materials to perform acts of kindness.
The kits have a variety of materials including garbage bags to help pick up litter, sticky notes to write heartfelt notes and even some change and cash to pay it forward.
“Those little things, it’s a muscle you have to build and practice them. Sometimes people don’t know what to do so this is a starting point. It’s not only awareness of Print the Love and what we do for random acts of kindness but also just in the world in general. If everyone did one random act of kindness a day, we would be a much better society, that’s what I believe. I think its more important than people give it credit for,” said Smart.
You can still participate by buying your own supplies and follow the kindness ideas PDF on the website. Participants can also win prizes during the virtual kindness party on Sunday.
The event goes from 2-4 p.m.
