Spread Kindness

The Spread Kindness chamber challenge believes in people. Through intentional, consistent, selfless acts we can spread kindness like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s day across Kearney!

Now that the holiday’s are over, and we settle into the bleak dreariness of winter, let’s remember to be kind to one another.

Spreading kindness encourages random and intentional acts of kindness throughout all aspects of our community,

Each day throughout the month of January follow along with our suggested acts of kindness, or create your own! Visit the Spread Kindness Facebook event page to share how you’ve extended kindness or what you’ve experienced. At the end of the month we will randomly select one commenter to win $31 Chamber Cash. Together, we believe we can have a lasting, uplifting impact on Kearney and surrounding communities as we start 2021 by spreading warm waves of kindness!

Warmth, kindness, and friendship are the most yearned for commodities in the world. The person who can provide them will never be lonely.    ~ Ann Landers
