Throughout the month of May, KINDSnacks is partnering with the online retailer, Zulily, to host Kindness Safaris at 20 different zoos across the country. In hosting these safaris, KIND and Zulily hope to show kids just how easy and fun it is to participate in random acts of kindness each and every day (how awesome is that?!).
The Kindness Safaris will include a scavenger hunt booklet that will feature interactive kindness activities inspired by animals. For example, when kids see a bear, they’re encouraged to give a family member a bear hug!
Attendees will receive flowers when they leave the zoo to pass on to someone else as an act of kindness. Participants will also receive a take-home kindness kit that comes complete with a complimentary lunch tote for kids to color on.
KIND and Zulily will be hosting a Kindness Safari at the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday, May 16th from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. To celebrate this event, KIND and Zulily are hosting a #kindawesome art contest on Cincinnati Cents. All of my readers are invited to submit photos, artwork, or comments about what kindness means to you and your children, using the hashtag #kindawesome.
For example, the picture above shows the dinner my kids made for me earlier this year on an evening when I had a horrendous headache. My oldest son ran up to the store to get the needed ingredients, and together, the four of them made blue waffles and scrambled eggs. To me, this definitely qualifies as a random act of kindness (and a pretty awesome dinner!).
The winner of this contest will receive a mixed case of KIND Bars and 4 tickets to the Kindness Safari at the Cincinnati Zoo! So be sure to leave a comment below with either a picture or a story about a random act of kindness to be entered to win this giveaway!
By the way….if you don’t win the contest, you can still print out a coupon from the Cincinnati Zoo’s site for $2 off adult admission and $1 off a child’s admission for the Kindness Safari event.
This giveaway ends at 9:00 a.m. EST on Friday, May 15th and is open to all U.S. residents, ages 18 years or older. The winner will be selected randomly, and will be notified by e-mail.
