Choose Kind Day Austin
November 11, 2017Free
Greetings Austin Earthlings!
To celebrate WONDER opening in Austin, Austin Mayor Steve Adler has proclaimed Saturday, November 11, 2017 as Choose Kind Day. We ask you to join us to celebrate CHOOSE KIND DAY by participating in your own random acts of kindness on November 11th by sharing on social and using the hashtag #ChooseKindAustin and volunteering at your favorite charities/organizations.
Below are some activities that have been coordinated with Generation Serve, a non-profit that provides year-round family service experiences and youth leadership programs to educate children about their community and how they can get involved.
Choose Kind Day Activities:
Adelphi Acre Gardens Work Day
Volunteers will be weeding, mulching, tending the butterfly garden, harvesting, and planting in the donation garden beds. Produce collected from the harvest is donated to a local food pantry.
Ronald McDonald House
Volunteers will be arriving in three separate shifts to prepare a meal for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Austin. Here is the location of the Ronald McDonald House of Austin: 1315 Barbara Jordan Blvd, Austin, TX 78723
Austin Pets Alive Mural Painting
We are partnering with Austin Pets Alive in creating a WONDER inspired mural highlighting animals and WONDER’s message of choosing kindness. The mural will be painted on Austin Pets Alive Thrift store, a boutique-style thrift store selling high quality new, and gently used items, for very low prices. ALL net proceeds go to support the innovative life-saving programs of Austin Pets Alive! The thrift shop is located on: 5801 Burnet Rd, Austin, TX 78756
Let’s make this Saturday our kindest day ever!!!
