Wanna join in on something positive in the midst of all the chaos? The city of Meridian is offering the opportunity to just that and it's happening NOW!

The city of Meridian is encouraging residents; individuals and businesses to spread kindness as a movement of compassion, now through April 9th. According to the city of Meridian's official Facebook page"Who is ready to flex those kindness muscles 💪 and DO THE RIGHT? We are so excited to bring this campaign back for another year👏🎉. If you haven't heard about DO THE RIGHT, it's a movement of compassion where we challenge all of our residents, businesses, and organizations to get out and spread some kindness. Join us April 5-9 and do something kind for the person to your right💙➡! #DoTheRight"

This is an incredible opportunity to take a moment and reflect on what kindness means. Maybe it's just a smile when you pass someone at the grocery store, maybe it's helping someone clear the cardboard out of their trunk at Republic Services, or maybe it's complimenting a stranger with no personal benefit in mind, just an opportunity to make someone smile.

The past year or so has been particularly divisive in this world and unfortunately, our wonderful community was not left unscathed in that. A little kindness could go a long way with someone and I give major props (not that they need my props) to the city of Meridian for putting on this event. So let's all join the city of Meridian and #DoTheRight, show some compassion and kindness for our fellow Idahoans.
