Of course, any day is a great day to show kindness to others, but today those unexpected acts are especially special.
Morning Dose talks with spokesperson of Houston Random Acts of Kindness Day Sherrie Handrinos about the empowering day, which is on July 25.
Houston Random Act of Kindness Day brings together charities, businesses, organizations, philanthropists and volunteers to give back to the community through happiness, hope— and everything from furniture and shoe donations, to field trips for children and meals for those in need. Founder Treveia Dennis, supporting sponsors and an all-volunteer team supported by her husband David Dennis’ Lemon Tree Foundation, commemorated the date with a two-day celebration that started with an awards ceremony. After losing her two sons and brother, Dennis wanted to create this event to honor them in the best way — giving back.
Some of the biggest hearts in Houston were honored Wednesday night during the annual Houston Humanitarian Awards ceremony. Dennis said these individuals were recognized for exemplifying kindness through action, philanthropy, volunteerism and other meaningful involvement.
The event was founded to thank and honor local unsung heroes, and encourage participation in Random Acts of Kindness Day in Houston.
