About the Event
Do you want to support your community but don't know where to start? Kindness Bank is a new type of 501(c)3 non-profit organization. KB is invested in increasing community health & well-being through acts of kindness.
We created this event to showcase how anyone from individuals, local small businesses, corporations and other non-profits can collaborate together to improve our community. We are explaining how acts of kindness can help individuals, as well as, businesses. 
To support the impact of kindness, our event includes networking, speakers and a make your own 'Be Kind' plaque session. In addition, we are showcasing our Kindness Exchange where you can learn where you can deposit or withdraw your time, talent and resources for a positive community impact. KB is different from other non-profits because we are not just setting up acts of kindness but tracking the impact of these actions on health & well-being. You will be the first group to participate in this and we are eager to share our vision with everyone! Be sure to review the ways you can make an impact and please share this page with your family and friends.
Your involvement is critical to our success. We look forward to working together for a legacy of community kindness leading to a healthier tomorrow.
