Connecting Through Kindness: The Kindness Quilt Project

Volunteer weeks starts this Sunday, April 19. As you know The Kindness Connection’s mission is to inspire youth to be lifelong volunteers by teaching about empathy and giving back. Our young volunteers produce gifts that are given to senior citizens, youth in hospitals or shelters, animals and veterans. This Volunteer Week, The Kindness Connection will be launching     “Connecting Through Kindness- The Kindness Quilt Project”.

As we isolate ourselves to protect our families and communities, we want to remind everyone that even though we are separated from each other we can still help spread joy to and bring a warm smile to those who are presented with one of our Kindness Quilts.

 

Here’s How It Works:

  • We are inviting all of you to complete a quilt square
  • Our wonderful group of volunteers at The Kindness Connection will take the quilt squares and assemble them into a colorful paper quilt
  • The completed quilts will be mailed to a variety of organizations including senior centers, fire stations, police stations, homeless shelters, and others that all can benefit from an act of kindness.

We will take care to abide by COVID-19 safety recommendations throughout the process of assembling the quilts.

We really need your help.  Please help us spread the word about “Connecting Through Kindness: The Kindness Quilt Project” to your family and friends through your social media platforms and don’t forget to encourage your kids to complete a square and/or ignite your own creativity and do a quilt square yourself.

Use this project to volunteer with your kids at home or with family, friends, or scout troop over your video chat app of choice.  This is also a great SEL activity during e-learning.
