Tonight we sent out 9 little elves into our communities to carry out a random act of kindness on one of their neighbors!  Our hope is that these random acts of kindness will be paid forward and snow ball into many, many acts of kindness, that bring us together as neighbors, celebrate our communities and remind us that the smallest act of kindness can make a HUGE difference in someones life.

Have you been elf-ed and you’re not sure what to do?

Want to get in on the fun?
