[ARCHIVED] The City's Commission on Youth Promotes April Random Acts of Kindness Month


The City’s Commission on Youth has created a month’s worth of kindness for you and your kids to do this April. Some of the acts of kindness are super simple and some are more involved, but all are intended to make kindness a habit in your community, classroom and home.

Before you start, print out this flyer and talk as a family about what you plan to do for each item. Talk about what being kind means and why it’s important. Planning the month should be fun. No one says you have to go in order. You can hang up the list and simply mark them off as you complete each act of kindness.

Kindness itself is very motivating and the true reward is the feeling you get from completing a kind act, but as an added incentive, the City’s Commission on Youth will award thirty $10 Elmhurst City Center gift cards randomly among all entries received. 

No later than Monday, May 9th, please email your completed list to Commissioner Anne Zimmer at We encourage you to submit pictures from your family's month of kindness too! For more information and resources, visit
