In a world filled with negativity, stress, uncertainty, and gloom, let’s work together to spread kindness in our lives! Beginning Feb. 1st until Feb. 17th, 2020, we will post a daily kindness challenge. Participants complete the challenge by simply commenting on our website or Facebook post with their experience.
Whoever completes the most challenges will have $1,000 donated in their name to The Rotary Foundation, making them a Paul Harris Fellow. People receive a Paul Harris Fellow recognition each time they accumulate $1,000 in giving to The Rotary Foundation.
You can read more about the Paul Harris Fellow recognition here: www.rotary.org/en/history-paul-harris-fellow-recognition. If there is a tie, a winner will be drawn.
Participants are encouraged to donate $10, in honor of SMME’s 10-year anniversary. All money raised will be used to assemble birthday kits at our anniversary party in May. These kits will be distributed to local food banks so every child can have the opportunity to celebrate a birthday!
How do I get started?
