A portion of all Kindness Bracelet sales returns to the local community through donations. Bracelets are also often provided for auctions to help support area schools and churches and sent on mission trips to share kindness around the world. In addition, Kindness Bracelet, the originalís founder, Grace Foxwell Murdock is involved in special projects to further her mission of lifting the spirits of everyone by focusing on small acts of kindness to remind us to be kinder to one other.
Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Day 2017
Friday, February 17 was Random Acts of Kindness Day, 2017. Salisbury's Mayor Jake Day teamed up with Kindness Expert Grace Foxwell Murdock and spread a little love around town. They each put in $30 and set out on a mission to see how much good will they could propagate. Check out the video on the City of Salisbury's Facebook page!
Dance for Kindness 2016
Since 2012, thanks to Orly Wahba, founder of Life Vest Inside, in celebration of World Kindness Day groups across the globe have joined together to perform a Kindness Freezemob / Flashmob to the same song and same dance on the same day.
Salisbury, MD joined the 5th annual DFK and was led by Kindness Bracelet, the original's own Grace Foxwell Murdock. Dancers gathered downtown on Sunday, November 13, and a synchrnonized sea of orange moved and grooved to show their support. Check out the dance video here on YouTube, compliments of PAC14.
Buddy Benches of Kindness
Kindness Bracelet sales are currently supporting the placement of Buddy Benches of Kindness at area elementary schools. Along with each bench a selection of books about kindness will also be donated by Grace. These books will provide ready resources for teachers at each school.
Buddy Benches of Kindness are soon to arrive on 5 elementary playgrounds in Somerset County, Maryland. Wicomico County, Maryland will begin with six Buddy Benches and expand placement as they are constructed. All benches in both counties are being built by students at career tech centers. One of the main objectives Grace had was to touch as many students and educators as possible to show how kindness flows through everyone and creates a ripple effect that never stops.
