The Kindness Rally is a random act of kindness road rally where teams around the country compete to do as many good deeds as they can in their community within a four-hour time frame.
Our mission is to provide a fun way to inspire others to be kind while combatting negativity with acts of positivity in local communities.
In this family-friendly competition, teams receive a list of random act of kindness “challenges” that involve helping others and bettering the community. From cleaning up trash and writing thank-you notes to carrying groceries to the car, teams will work to cross off challenges to see who has done the most good deeds by the end of the event. Teams use social media to showcase their community impact and encourage others. The majority of the provided supplies includes craft materials such as paper, markers, tape, and cards. The idea is to get creative with the challenges wherever possible.
With our efforts combined, 10,165 random acts of kindness have been completed in 2019! Teams joined in to spread kindness from Michigan, Hawaii, Minnesota, Ohio, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Canada and Australia! Can you imagine the growth we are going to see in 2020?!
Our partners make this event happen! Donations help us purchase the supplies and shirts for our event. This year we had a whopping 162 teams participate! That is over 110% growth from 2018! We are so grateful for the continued support of this multi-city community event as it grows each year.
No matter how large the event gets or how far The Kindness Rally spreads, the focus will always be on the local level. It is about being on the ground in your community making a positive impact by being kind to your neighbors, businesses, and community members. Each rally is unique, because each community is unique. There are many different ways you can pay it forward in your hometown and spread the positive vibes. The Kindness Rally is out to celebrate everything that makes your community special and the people that contribute to it.
As our event grows each year, so does our finacial need to provide enough craft supplies and shirts for any and all participants. Please help us make our 2020 event create a ripple of positive acts around the world!
