Celebrate Kindness

Hutchinson’s Kindness Celebration Day – A Call to Action

• What: A day to focus on doing for others and practicing kindness
• When: May 1st, 2018
• Where: Throughout the Hutchinson area
• Who: All community members, organizations, churches, and businesses are encouraged to participate

 The concept is to continue to build off of previous kindness-centered activities in Hutchinson, in order to keep momentum.

Background: The Connect Committee initially wanted to revive the Random Acts of Kindness Day that was proclaimed by a group from the Chamber’s Leadership Institute a couple years back.  Since then, the response from our community regarding projects like Reagan’s Kindness Campaign and Bo Young’s Kindness Revolution seems to confirm that this is an initiative worth pursuing.  The great thing about the concept is that in most daily situations, being kind or responding kindly pertains to all ages, backgrounds, and viewpoints. People don’t need to sacrifice their beliefs or stop being passionate of their cause to be kind to each other.


The Kindness Celebration Day on May 1st is meant to follow the pattern of National Night Out – community members are encouraged to plan acts of kindness within their homes, churches, organizations, or businesses that take place on Tuesday, May 1st.
