Women Transcending Boundaries is having their third annual Acts of Kindness (A-OK!) weekend on September 8 – 9. The A-OK! weekend was founded as an annual remembrance of 9/11 and offers neighborhoods a chance to honor those lost by giving back to their own communities. Participants in weekends past have cleaned public spaces, repaired bikes and painted murals.
Although the Acts of Kindness committee will provide a template of activities to involve, inform, and inspire each group, participants are encouraged to be creative and invent their owns ways of giving back. The goal of the weekend is to build community and Women Transcending Boundaries hopes to accomplish this through the sharing of food, cultures and kindness.
Participants are encouraged to develop a Volunteer Project that achieves a community goal. This project should not only improve the community, but provide a venue for continued discussion, cultural exchange and celebration.
