Dear Wadsworth Neighbor,
Kind and compassionate people see clear benefits to their well-being and happiness. They may even live longer. Kindness can also help reduce stress and improve our emotional well-being. We all have so much going on in our lives - including competing strains and stresses.This can see kindness pushed to the side, in favor of what is urgent or trending now. Now is the time to re-imagine a kinder Wadsworth that better protects our mental health.
The Wadsworth City Schools in partnership with the City of Wadsworth, the Wadsworth Public Library, and other area nonprofit agencies have started an initiative to spread the message of kindness throughout our local schools, the business community, local churches, and community residents - “Be Kind Wadsworth”.
This campaign will be multifaceted and encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to:
Witness and honor kindness
Participate in kindness challenges
Shine a light on acts of kindness,
Spread an epidemic of kindness throughout Wadsworth.
We all have a role in promoting kindness in the community we live in!
As part of the campaign, we are asking our community businesses, philanthropists and other stakeholders to become Be Kind Influencers. Our goal is to raise enough funds to purchase #BeKindWadsworth yard signs that are eye-catching and will kick-start interest in the movement.
We will use additional funds to perpetuate kindness throughout the community. As a Be Kind influencer, you will be on the ground floor of this exciting initiative to make Wadsworth a kinder, more compassionate community and better protect the mental health of all Grizzlies.
