Macaroni Kid encourages families to do acts of kindness


By Kat Dinsmore, publisher, September 3, 2019

On Saturday, September 28, through Saturday, October 5, 2019, Macaroni Kid Publishers across the country are inviting our readers to participate in acts of kindness that give back to their communities. Macaroni Kid Act of Kindness Week is an annual nationwide celebration. Over the past years, Macaroni Kid Publishers raised $50,000 for local charities, donated more than 35,000 diapers to families in needs, encouraged hundreds of kids to sign anti-bullying pledges, cleaned dozens of parks and trails and delivered more than 3,000 handwritten cards to first responders.

I would love if HWS Macaroni Kid families would join my own family and pick something to do to pass along kindness to another. It can be as easy as telling someone they're doing a good job to as involved as collecting supplies for a local non-profit. My kids and I have talked about ways they can improve their communities at school, on sports teams and out and about in every day life. Kids are never too young to introduce the idea of doing kind things for others.
