It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.
We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.
Our next story of kindness hails from an organization that we have highlighted before for their acts of courage and unwavering strength. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the leading research hospital geared towards combatting childhood cancer and other life-threatening illness. Their work is unprecedented, and they truly are an organization everyone should support.
In addition to their numerous programs like “This Shirt Saves Lives”, to support their mission even further, St Jude has a blog called St. Jude Inspire, where they tell the stories about the hospital in hopes of inspiring trust, hope, and faith in others. As their mission statement says, their goal is always “Finding cures: Saving children.”
Due to the loneliness and isolation that can be direct impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, much like us, St. Jude has added a new blog series to their site called “Inspired by Your Kindness.” As they say, in this time of social distancing, the St. Jude team is looking for ways to add some light to people’s days through feel-good stories that spread kindness.
St. Jude is showing people that we can still find human connections and light in a time of uncertainty. Their stories range from lessons you can learn from coloring to acts of compassion by teachers. Check out their series here to learn more.
