a KIND causes update
By KIND Editor
As you probably know by now, we’re big fans of kindness, and we love supporting the people and organizations that spread it every day. That’s why we launched KIND Causes at the end of 2013. Through the program, we give out $10,000 monthly grants to socially-impactful causes.
Since the program’s inception – and thanks to your participation! – we have empowered 35 amazing causes that are positively impacting communities across the country and the world. These causes address a variety of issues – from minimizing food waste to helping marginalized young people gain access to education.
While the good work is far from over, there is an update you should be aware of.
As of September 29th, the KIND Causes program will be administrated by The KIND Foundation, a separate 501(c)(3) established by KIND earlier this year. Don’t worry – at this time, the shift will have no consequences on the program you know and love. The grants will still be given out monthly, the recipients will continue to be chosen by our community, and everyone placing a vote will be encouraged to commit to a kind act in his or her own life. Please continue to submit your causes and voting for those that inspire you most here. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for joining us on our journey to make the world a little kinder!
