The Kindness Campaign empowers people, which makes a strong community, through service, stewardship and selflessness.  We believe in the power of the people to build strong communities.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Kindness Campaign implements fearless approaches to initiate social change and improvement by taking risks on new ideas and approaches, partnering “across lines” with people and organizations that share our belief to engage people and change the community for the better, today. We don’t limit ourselves to any one sector or issue, but instead let a set of core values drive all our initiatives.

Environmental Stewardship

The state of our environment plays a major role in the well-being of residents and the local community. Some of our blocks are being endangered by littering, pollution and destruction. There are several steps we take to counteract current negative environmental trends, many of which can save money, health and positively affect the overall community. We partner with
people and organizations to promote environmental stewardship.

  • Community Home Gardening

  • Local Repair

Health Stewardship

The state of our health plays a major role in the well-being of residents and the local community.  Some areas are “food deserts” while others have a lack of options for “minimal to non-processed foods. Some people do not know how to live healthy. There are several steps we take to counter
act declining health, many of which saves money, relationships and positively affect the overall community. We partner with people and organizations to promote health stewardship.

Safety Stewardship

The state of our safety plays a major role in the well-being of residents and the local community.  Some of our blocks are infested with violence, despair and hopelessness. Safety is necessary to

ensure everyone in the community reaches their potential. There are several steps we take to stop increasing violence and despair, many of which saves money, lives and spirits.

Education And Employment Stewardship

The state of education and employment plays a major role in the well-being of residents and the local community. Many of our schools are without adequate resources. Our community is without employment opportunities for many. Education and employment opportunities are necessary to ensure that everyone in the community have a present and future while simultaneously being contributors. There are several steps we take to address lack of education resources and employment opportunities, many of which ensures a happy people and a prosperous community.
