Be Kind Livonia
Be the I in KIND and share your acts of kindness!
It’s all the buzz and you can be part of it! You are a part of it, just by living in the great city of Livonia.
Join the #BeKindLivonia campaign, starting Monday, April 5.
Banners heralding the #BeKindLivonia slogan will give each of us the opportunity to, not only be kind to one another but also to physically “BE” the “I” in KIND. Everyone is encouraged to stand in front of the banner, essentially becoming the “I” before having their photo taken.
The rest is simple. Post the photo to your Facebook, Instagram or other social media with the hashtag #BeKindLivonia. Then, go and spread kindness in as many ways as possible, and each time you do, snap a photo to share it on your favorite social media platform with the hashtag.
Many organizations have come together to share, embrace and support #BeKindLivonia, including the City of Livonia, Livonia Police Department, Livonia Fire Department, Livonia Public Schools, Clarenceville School District, Livonia Chamber of Commerce and Rosedale Gardens Presbyterian Church (RGPC). Banners will be displayed at these and other sites around the community, including Rotary Park and Clements Circle Park. Stop by to take your photo starting April 5.
So – find a banner, “say cheese,” take a photo and post it on social media with the hashtag … #BeKindLivonia. Then, go out and share your kindness – and images of your kindness acts!
history of #bekindlivonia
The #BeKindLivonia campaign was borne of the success of The Blessing Bag Project, founded by Rosedale Gardens Presbyterian Church in 2017. Over the last several years, RGPC collaborated with the City of Livonia and the Livonia Police and Fire Departments to deliver blessing bags to thank and appreciate community groups. That meant delivering pizza and gifts for the caring staff at St. Mary Mercy Hospital working on Christmas Eve in 2018 and gift bags for hundreds of Livonia’s disabled veterans in 2019.
