Published on 02/09/2015 at 8:45 a.m. by aroach

Colorado schools, businesses, and individuals are joining to collectively perform 10,000 random acts of kindness in an event called State of Kind. The six month challenge kicked off at Governor Hickenlooper's inauguration on January 13, 2015. It will end at a culminating event on July 14, 2015 at the Biennial of the Americas. It is a kindness challenge for the citizens of Colorado. It is an amazing opportunity to lead the way to a kinder world through the power of community engagement and social media. Bayfield's FOR Club (Friends of Rachel) has accepted the challenge. The goal that has been set for Bayfield High School is 100 random acts of kindness. Before July 14, 2015, Bayfield High School will collectively perform 100 acts of kindness. If you have performed a random act of kindness and you would like to take part in this amazing event, share your experience on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #StateOfKind  and  #WolverinesForKindness . Whoever brings in a social media post of their random act of kindness to Ms. Leithauser will receive a sticker of the image shown above. Also, the first five schools in Colorado to hit 100 acts of kindness will receive an awesome goody bag and be featured on the Random Acts of Kindness Facebook Page, which has over half a million fans. For more info visit www.stateofkind.co The school logo will be featured on this website under "Participating Businesses and Schools." This movement is an amazing initiative to inspire young adults of the importance of kindness. This is a wonderful opportunity for Bayfield students to spread kindness and make a true change in the world.
