It’s a great honor to be a winner of the 2021 Call for Kindness and we’re super excited to join the Riley’s Way Foundation family. The grant from the Rileys Way Foundation will help us alleviate hunger among members of the homeless community, low-income families, and underprivileged children. In addition, it would help us expand our food recovery programs and hunger-related service projects and continue providing critical aid to more communities impacted by the global pandemic.
Our world is better when kindness becomes a lifestyle rather than a one-time action. There are so many acts of kindness people can do every day that can make a difference regardless of how big or small the action is. This ripple effect is actually the best part about kindness. Our overall vision at NEST4US is to empower people of all ages and backgrounds to create a more compassionate and inclusive world by instilling a passion for service through random acts of kindness.
