Call for Kindness Celebration
Thank you to all of those who tuned in for our Call for Kindness Celebration on Thursday, May 6th, in honor of Riley Sandler’s birthday. It was an inspiring night, with 275 participants from across the country celebrating stories of hope and kindness!
It’s not too late to take part! Watch and share the video above to hear directly from some of the 2020 Call for Kindness Fellows about the impact they had on their communities this year. Learn more about Riley’s Way, our leadership development Fellowship, and our 30 new winners of the 2021 Call for Kindness.
The Call for Kindness gives teens ages 13–19 the opportunity to create concrete change in their communities. This year’s winning projects address today’s urgent community issues including food insecurity, education equity, homelessness, mental health, and more. Check out the full list of projects here.
This year’s Call for Kindness is the biggest yet with a 70% increase in applicants, hailing from 35 states from around the country! Thirty projects were selected to be awarded up to $3,000 each for community projects that embody the Riley’s Way values of kindness, empathy, leadership, and connection-making. In addition to funding, the teens will take part in our leadership development fellowship, where they will learn from mentors and each other.
