First responders are often our first call when an emergency strikes. However, they also build relationships and seek out the amazing members of our community that exemplify kindness, generosity and goodwill with the support of the local nonprofit, Kindness 911. Headquartered in Clark County, WA, local law enforcement and firefighting agencies may see your good deeds and issue you a “Kindness Citation.” Have no fear – this is no ordinary citation, Kindness 911 issues these as recognition for being an amazing member of the community! The gratitude doesn’t stop there, as Kindness 911 makes a donation, on behalf of each agency they serve, annually to further recognize all our honorees. Kindness 911 believes that there is always good to be found in the world and through their Kindness Cops & Crew, they not only recognize it but build positive relationships in the process. For those unsung heroes that Kindness 911 may not know about, there is also a “Nominate a Hero” tab on their website to share the “heroes” in your life. You can nominate a friend, family member, teacher or public servant that deserves a standing ovation. They might just be the next Kindness Citation issued!
Currently, Kindness 911 serves the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Ridgefield Police, Cowlitz Tribal Police, Vancouver Police, Washougal Police and the Gresham Police. Each of these agencies self-selects a local charity to support with their Kindness 911 donation. Agencies, including law enforcement and fire districts, are encouraged to reach out to Kindness 911 to learn how they too can be an integral part of the Kindness 911 family.
If you are looking for some good news about the community we live in, then visit (and follow) them on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or at www.Kindness911.org and be part of their family. You will get to experience the Kindness Cops & Crews interactions with those that serve the community, those that have gone above and beyond to save a life, those that care for their neighbors and those that simply lend a hand. Kindness 911 promotes goodwill while recognizing people for their caring acts that often go unnoticed. They welcome volunteers at various events throughout the year. If you are interested in volunteering, sign-up on their website under the “Briefing Room” tab which allows people to be “on-call” for these opportunities. If you wish to make a financial contribution that can also be done on their website. Already a current client?
