2018 Holiday Act-of-Kindness benefiting our Military

Our annual holiday-act-of-kindness changes beneficiaries each year. We want to be able to spread kindness to as many groups as we can, so this is why we have chosen to make this event benefit a different group each year. 

Last year, our 2017 holiday act-of-kindness benefited local homeless shelters. We collected in-kind and monetary donations to purchase toiletry and personal hygiene items, hats, gloves, and scarves to fill 50 backpacks. We took these backpacks to the Police Department who promised to deliver them to the homeless camps in downtown Indianapolis.

This year, we have decided to direct our holiday act-of-kindness towards our military. In honor of those who risk their lives for the one's we have, we want to do something special this holiday season. We will be collecting in-kind items to put together care packages, holiday cards, and monetary donations throughout this campaign.
