Spread an Act of Kindness
WomenSafe is excited to announce the kick off of the first ever Flat Stanley An Act of Kindness Fundraiser. Many of you will remember Flat Stanley from the children's books by Jeff Brown. He is flat in nature so that he can travel through the mail to accompany anyone on an adventure. Flat Stanley has been photographed all over the world, the photos being proof of his travels. Our fundraiser has Flat Stanley traveling locally and with a purpose. We are asking the citizens of Addison County and Rochester to take Flat Stanley along with them as they do a kind act. Pick up some trash around your neighborhood, plant seeds, read to someone, assist a neighbor with tasks, donate food and pet food to a local food shelf, give someone a hug, etc. It doesn't have to take long or cost a lot to make a difference in the life of another person and their community. We ask that each person take a photo of Flat Stanley involved in to their good deed, then submit their entry to WomenSafe with an (optional) donation. Each kind act contributes to WomenSafe's mission to create positive social change and has the power, collectively, to create the community in which we all want to live. Your donations will support WomenSafe's work to provide direct service, education, outreach and social change work toward ending physical, sexual and emotional violence.
All submissions will be entered into the grand prize drawing for an Ipad!
May 31st is the deadline for submitting entries to WomenSafe.
