Spread Kindness Today & Inspire Others
There’s never a bad time to spread kindness, but maybe there are special days to inspire you to spread more kindness. Sparked by 11 year old resident, Orion Jean, the City of Mansfield has encouraged residents to spend the next twelve days by doing things to make the community a better place.
Here’s what they shared on Facebook:
We’re officially two weeks from 02.22.2022 and we want to commemorate it with you! We thought a great way to do this is by spreading kindness. Thanks, Orion Jean for the reminder. 😀 So, between now and Tuesday, Feb. 22, we’re asking Mansfield residents to show us your kindness. Make a point to help someone smile.
