Be Kind Livonia
Be KIND ... Share acts of kindness!
Everyone is invited to join the #BeKindLivonia campaign!
Banners heralding the #BeKindLivonia slogan give each of us the opportunity to, not only be kind to one another but also to physically “BE” the “I” in KIND. Position yourself in front of one of the banners around town, so you can actually become the “I” in the word. 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, Rosedale Gardens Presbyterian Church (RGPC) and St. Mary Mercy Hospital. Banners will be displayed at parks, schools and the hospital. Stop by to take your photo!
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.
