Description

Carlie's Kindness Campaign invites you to the 2nd Annual Kindness Rocks 5K Family Fun Run & Walk!  Join us Sunday, July 22nd at Riverfront Park to benefit "Our Military Kids", an organization that provides support to the children of deployed military, as well as to the children of Wounded Warriors, with programs that nurture and sustain children while a parent is away in service to our country or recovering from injury. Wear your RED, WHITE and BLUE, and let's spread some KINDNESS!  To learn more about Carlie's Kindness Campaign, please visit carlieskindnesscampaign.org and like & follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!  Can't make it? RUN VIRTUALLY!!! We'll send you a sweet Kindness Rocks 5K DriFit and you can run your own 5K...or sit on the couch - but either way, you'll look good and feel good for supporting an awesome cause!!!

My name is Carlie, and I’m 13, from the tiny town of Amity, OR. I started Carlie’s Kindness Campaign at 9 and we are now a 501(c)3 nonprofit! My mission is to change the world with kindness, because it doesn’t matter how old you are, you CAN make a difference! I choose projects that are close to my heart and enlist my community’s support to help spread kindness! So far I’ve raised $2500 in toys & games for kids going through chemo, sent Christmas gifts to our Military Servicemen & Women overseas, delivered baked goods to local fire and police departments, created a program at my school to promote RESPECT for people with special needs and disabilities, organized the Kindness Rocks 5K to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation (and I'm SO excited about this year's race), held a hurricane/flood relief supply drive for the victims of Hurricane Harvey, hosted a Veteran & Active Duty Appreciation Lunch, and now I visit schools around the state for my “Being Kind is Cool” assembly program to show kids the importance of kindness and service to your community! Carlie’s Kindness Campaign has created an easy way for people to spread kindness, and actively participate in making the world a better place. Because my organization helps with all kinds of issues and needs, each project is new and exciting, and draws people of all ages, backgrounds and lifestyles to help me make each project happen! My hope is that I inspire people to do good things for others, and to show them that when people come together to help, amazing things can happen.
