Everyone is waiting for the magic bullet, the Covid-19 vaccine, to bring some normalcy back to our lives. We all want to be able to get back to hugging our loved ones, inviting people over for celebrations, going out to dinner, shows, and sporting events. But for now, we’re in limbo trying to figure out the best way to stay safe, keeping our distance from loved ones, wearing our masks, and fearfully watching the number of cases and deaths rise every day.
Thanks to our generous donors, we are thrilled to announce two winners, Shreyaa Venkat and Jayde Powell, of our Kindness Award. Both of them go above and beyond to help others but it’s especially appreciated during the Coronavirus pandemic. In these strange times, when there is so much anxiety, stress and fear we’re blown away by their compassion, their selflessness, and their ability to get other people to share in their vision of helping those in need. Their acts of kindness have rippled out and touched thousands of lives. It’s incredible, it’s beautiful and we’re so proud to have them as part of our MKRO family.
In spite of the stress and fear of the Coronavirus, it’s bringing out the best in people. There are many inspirational stories of people helping one another, spreading kindness and compassion. You too can be a part of this outbreak of kindness. Here are just a few of those stories.
I vaguely remember hearing about this case a number of years ago but it wasn’t until I read the full story that I was completely floored by the unfairness and complete miscarriage of justice that Ross Ulbricht has suffered.
Congratulations to Mindy Ousley and Ashley and Dustin Beeler, each got $250 to fund their acts of kindness projects!
Once again, we are extremely lucky to have so many wonderful people who support us and believe in our mission. We truly appreciate all of the donations that make it possible for us to give out additional grants and awards, including this second grant.
We’d also like to acknowledge the many people (almost 100) who sent in their fantastic ideas for kindness projects. While we wish we could give our grant to every kindness project submitted, there were so many fantastic ideas, we regret we have only two to give. We want to thank each and every one of you for submitting your ideas and hope you continue to spread kindness everywhere you go!
