We’re proud to support Bolingbrook Kindness Day on Saturday, May 14, with these activities for your entire family to share and celebrate acts of kindness. Be sure to also check out the Kindness Day Bolingbrook Facebook page to learn more about Kindness Day and find more events happening in the community.
Kindness Day Schedule of Events
Paws to Read: Kind Animals

Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald House Charities
Celebrate our friend and Kindness Day Ambassador, Logan B., and help us collect pop tabs! Bring your pop tabs to Children’s Services or the Vortex, and we will donate them to Ronald McDonald House Charities in Logan’s memory. Drop in.
Become an “art-ivist” and design a poster to amplify a message that you care about. For every artwork created, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate to programs meeting global needs. Join us in accepting the Students Rebuild Challenge, and share a photo of your poster with us by Friday, May 27.
Students Rebuild has identified five world needs to inspire you as you create: clean oceans, humanitarian aid, hunger relief, overcomeing bias and art activism. For more information visit studentsrebuild.org/worldneeds.
Kindness Day Stories
Spreading kindness can have a positive impact on a person’s life and inspire others, especially our youth, to be kind to each other. In 2021 we asked students in our community to share their stories of kindness. We collected their stories and published the first Kindness Day Bolingbrook book and eBook. Find a copy now.
Community members also shared their kindness stories and messages in this video from last year’s Kindness Day celebration.
We hope you’re inspired and ready to join us on Saturday, May 14! Happy Kindness Day!
