#BeKind21

Sept. 1 – 21

The city  joins Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation for its second annual 21 Days to Be Kind Challenge to encourage young people, families and teachers to build habits that foster kindness and wellness in the community. Inspired by the idea that habits are formed by repeating an activity for 21 consecutive days, the challenge calls on participants to practice an act of kindness each day from Sept. 1 to 21. The challenge, which will culminate on the International Day of Peace, is an opportunity for communities to establish kinder habits and to foster a spirit of compassion and action.
