Gilbert, Ariz.- We’ve seen a movement towards kindness across the country and Gilbert wants to be a part of it. So the Town of Gilbert is launching a new community-wide campaign called Gilbert Kindness. This new initiative is focused on celebrating all of the thoughtful things citizens are already doing for each other while also encouraging the community to go out and do something kind for a friend, family member, neighbor, coworker, or even someone they have never met before.
To officially kick off this initiative, Mayor Jenn Daniels has declared May 8-14, “Gilbert Kindness Week”.
“Gilbert is already a compassionate and giving community and this campaign is focused on celebrating all of the amazing acts of kindness, big and small, that our residents do for each other on a daily basis,” said Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels. “It’s our hope that this initiative will encourage others to do something kind for someone, making Gilbert an even better and kinder place.”
How can you get involved? Join us today, Monday, May 8th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at GilbertNOW / Gilbert Art House in the Heritage District as we celebrate the launch of Gilbert Kindness by sharing notes of kindness. There will be Gilbert giveaways, including the sought-after "I Heart Gilbert" shirts, games, activities and free ice cream from Sub Zero Ice Cream and Yogurt.
We want to hear your kindness stories! Share your random act of kindness story, photo, video, or even your favorite quote by using #GilbertKindness on social media or by visiting www.gilbertaz.gov/kindness. Your submission could be featured on Gilbert’s social media channels.
Throughout the week we’ll be sharing stories of kindness on our social media channels. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. For a full list of Gilbert’s social media accounts, visit www.gilbertaz.gov/connect.
