Spreading Kindness through the #BeKind21 Campaign

Thank you to the Born This Way Foundation for inviting us to participate in their #BeKind21 campaign! Every year, #BeKind21 calls on participants to practice an act of kindness each day from September 1st to September 21st. Culminating on the U.N. Day of Peace, #BeKind21 encourages individuals, schools, corporate partners, nonprofits, and more to head into the fall with a spirit of compassion.

Kindness can be anything from advocating for an inclusive world, to holding the door open for a stranger. Here at God’s Love, we spread kindness by handing out cookies in front of our building on Spring Street, delivering Chuck’s Famous Brownies to our local FDNY heroes ahead of the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, and calling our clients to wish them a happy birthday. Check out our #BeKind21 social media posts below!

Join us, and our friends at @BTWFoundation, in our pledge to participate in an act of kindness every day from September 1 — September 21. Help make the world a little better, one small act at a time: https://bornthisway.foundation/bekind21″

As we reflect on the events that occurred on that tragic day, we recognize the sacrifices these firefighters, and all first responders, made 20 years ago and thank them for the sacrifices they continue to make every day.
