     WHEREAS, one random act of kindness, no matter how small, can make an enormous impact on someone else's life. Kindness has the ability to make the world a better place and have a positive impact on any institution. The giving of one’s self in service to another empowers both the giver and the recipient; and

     WHEREAS, by knowing, understanding, and using the power of kindness we have the ability to send out a positive ripple that may endure through time. Through random acts of kindness, we can promote healthy behavior and positive dynamics within our community; and

     WHEREAS, Allegheny County Council will join in Kindness Day to help raise awareness of the value of kindness. Acts of kindness must be extended to one another, regardless of social or economic status, education, gender, origin, religious belief, age, lifestyle or abilities; and

     WHEREAS, the Pittsburgh Kindness Consortium is made up of two Pittsburgh based organizations including The Caileigh Lynn McDowell Foundation and The Pittsburgh Kindness Initiative; they are dedicated to increasing awareness of kindness in the Pittsburgh region and dedicated to reaffirming the importance of having a positive and supportive community;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that I, Allegheny County Council Member Tom Baker, do hereby declare November 13, 2019 to be Kindness Day in Allegheny County, and I urge all individuals to extend acts of kindness to one another, regardless of social or economic status, education, gender, origin, religious belief, age, lifestyle or abilities.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto caused the Seal of the County of Allegheny to be affixed this 6th day of November 2019.
