Be Part of a Viral "Random Act of Kindness"

Join in person or virtually for the 5th annual Holiday Kindness Celebration! Show everyone how much a Random Act of Kindness can brighten the holiday season.


You might remember our good buddies Kevin Bright and Bert Dorazio, founders of the Pittsburgh Kindness Initiative. We posted a story about them in November on the Sparkt Website.

You had to know that during this "kinder" time of the year they'd have something planned, and indeed they do -- so that's why they're Day 13 of Spartk's "25 Days of Volunteering," our favorite volunteer activities for you and your friends and family during the month of December.

Join them in person or virtually for their 5th annual Holiday Kindness Celebration , Saturday, December 15th. Everyone will meet up at 1pm at the North Park Lounge on Butler Street in Lawrenceville

From there, volunteers will fan out into Lawrenceville, Bloomfield, East Liberty, Downtown and surrounding areas. According to their website, in past years people participating have paid for prescriptions for seniors, bought coffee, pizza and subs for unsuspecting strangers, brought cookies and pizzas to first responders, passed out lottery tickets to passers-by, paid off lay-aways and much, much more!

They're blasting out encouragement on social media. "This is our most fun celebration of the year. If you can't join us in person, organize your own band of kindness marauders and spread holiday kindness wherever you are."

Post your Random Act of Kindness on the invitation on their Facebook page . If they get at least 10 posts, they're promising to select the most creative one and donate $100 to the charity of the winner's choice!

This Holiday Kindness Celebration event 5 years ago was the birth of the Pittsburgh Kindness Initiative , so come out, join them, and celebrate making Pittsburgh kinder city, one act at a time!
