Kindness Yard Sale

The Kindness Yard Sale is an annual event that gets the WHOLE COMMUNITY humming!  Donations of good condition, saleable items are accepted a month before the sale.  Nothing has a set price - the Kindness Yard Sale is "Pay What You Wish", with the understanding that all money raised is used to SPREAD KINDNESS!   You never know what treasures you might find! Contact us for information about donating, shopping or volunteering at the Kindness Yard Sale!

And if you do not live in the Metro DC area, some online Kindness Yard Sale auctions will give YOU a chance to participate in the Kindness Yard Sale, too!  Follow Kindness Activist on Facebook to keep in the know.

Pop-Up Projects

Kindness and Creativity go hand in hand.  If you take a stroll past the Kindness Activist house, you will often find something magical happening.  Maybe kids will be making gifts for their adults!  Maybe pumpkins or rocks will be being painted...  Perhaps you will find a sidewalk dance party, complete with DJ and disco ball!  Maybe you will find a digital camera and a prompt to photograph something that brings you joy.  Or maybe you will get to grab some hot cocoa and cookies.  You never know what you will find!

Table Lending Library

Planning a birthday party but don't have enough tables?

Get a spot in a craft show, but don't have a table to display your wares?

Having the extended family over for dinner and no where to put the food (or the people)?

We''ve all been there.  That's why Kindness Activist has a Table Lending Library.  You don't have to invest in a table (and store it), just borrow!!

Daily Poll

Would it surprise you to learn that something as simple as a poll on a busy corner played a big part in bringing a community together?  People of all ages and walks of life make it a point to stop and vote in the Daily Poll on the corner of South Fillmore St and 2nd St in Arlington, Virginia.  The poll changes everyday and asks voters to weigh in on "important" topics such as "Cheetos - Fried or Puffy" and "Music - Jazz or Rap".  The Daily Poll reached international audiences when Voice of America told listeners all about it. Check out the link below to get your two cents in and vote virtually!

Refugee Assistance

At Kindness Activist, we recognize that people fleeing to America for safety are in precarious positions and need support in their new country.  We help find temporary housing when possible, supply weather appropriate clothing, and do whatever we can to ensure that refugees arriving in the USA feel welcome and safe.
