Provo City has joined with Orem, Vineyard and other Utah County cities to celebrate Kindness Week. We will also be coordinating with Provo Kindness for another Kindness Week in February.
After a year largely filled with unrest and division, the announcement of Provo Kindness in September felt like a breath of fresh air. They’ve established a worthy goal of helping us create a culture of kindness that helps us all connect better as neighbors, friends and even strangers.
So let's start Kindness Week off right by following ProvoKindness.org online for your daily dose of kindness. You can also follow them on Instagram and Facebook by searching "Provo Kindness."
I hope that residents take a moment to celebrate either in quiet acts of service, giving a kind word, having greater patience, or simply trying to understand one another rather than judge. This should go on throughout Kindness Week and beyond.
If nothing else, we can fill our social media feeds with uplifting stories, quotes and examples of kindness.
