Spread the Kindness!

July 11, 2022 to July 15, 2022

Think about how it felt the last time someone was kind to you. Maybe they did you a favor. Maybe they sent you a card. Maybe they just gave you a smile and said hello. Whatever it was, there was a connection that probably made you feel good.

We hope you’ll think about that experience and help us spread the kindness, along with our partners at WPXI-TV and Starbucks the week of July 11th. You’ll see kindness prompts every time you buy a coffee or a pastry at participating local Starbucks stores. And you’ll hear a message of kindness and learn about the work we do at the Center For Loving Kindness every day on the Channel 11 News at 6 am and 5 pm.

We’re excited to be #PGHKind and hope you’ll join us, because we all could use a little extra kindness right now!
