The Kindness Rally

As a chapter we will be participating in the Kindness Rally, which is put on by our friends, JCI Michigan. You can join our team in person or from home, or you can choose to participate individually. See below for more info: 

We bring the community together for friendly, competitive fun focusing on kind acts & community impact.
Saturday, Septemebr 26th | 12-4 p.m.Hybrid Event – Virtual or In-person (outdoor)
In this family-friendly global competition, teams are equipped with supplies, shirts, and a list of random act of kindness “challenges” that involve helping others and bettering the community. From cleaning up trash and writing thank-you notes to paying for a stranger’s coffee, teams will work to cross off challenges to see who has done the most good deeds by the end of the event. Teams use our mobile app and social media to showcase their community impact and encourage others, so follow #TheKindnessRally hashtag on September 26th to see all the positive change created during this rally! Sign up as an individual and create a team later, or declare yourself a team captain and gather friends to be on your team ( 2 – 6 people). You can choose to get the team supplies yourself, or simply add on a Kindness Kit to equip your team with everything you need! (see below)The Kindness Rally is out to celebrate everything that makes your community special and the people that contribute to it. The focus will always be on the local level. It is about making a positive impact by being kind to your neighbors, businesses, and community members. 10, 165 acts of kindness were completed last year in just one day! Together we are changing the world one act of kindness at a time.P.S. Be sure to come up with an awesome name for your team! #ItsFunToBeKind#TheKindnessRally

 Virtual Lab Night: Finding Lost Money

Join us at 7:30pm on Thursday, October 1st, where Carolyn will show you a neat trick she learned as a banker on how you might discover lost or forgotten money that you may recover.
