Kindness Week is Feb 9-14, 2015
We invite everyone to join us in celebrating Kindness Week in Calaveras County, February 9 through February 14, 2015.
*School fly over day for those schools who participate, is scheduled for Wednesday, February 11th, 2015
As in the past, our project will provide kindness-pass-it-on ribbons and tie up ribbon for all Calaveras county schools. We plan to purchase 10,000 pass-it-on ribbons and 3 miles of tie up blue ribbon.
Over the years and going forward, we are supported by
the kindness and generosity of many local residents.

The idea is simple: When we make a conscious effort to perform a kind act, ripples of kindness flow forth. The grassroots effort to promote random acts of kindness firmly took hold in 1995 when the Angels Camp City Council issued a proclamation and The City of Angels became the first designated "Kindness Zone" in the United States. Since then, the ripples of kindness have continued to spread and now wash over all Calaveras County Schools in a celebration of kindness each February. Join us!
To learn more about random acts of kindness activities visit the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation website at www.actsofkindness.org.
Ten thousand (10,000) "Pass It On" kindness ribbons will be distributed in our schools and throughout our county. The Seeds of Kindness Project works in tandem with Calaveras County schools, organizations and businesses to create an increased awareness for the positive outcomes, both communally and personally, which are the result of the performance of kind acts.
Light blue ribbons will be distributed county-wide. When a ribbon-bearer sees an act of kindness being performed, he or she will sign the ribbon and pass it on. The symbolic ribbons are a visual reminder of the importance of fostering goodwill in our own community and in the world at large.
You may find kindness ribbons available during Kindness Week at the following "Kindness Centers", where you will be greeted with a smile:
