Since 1997 the Brooklyn Center has celebrated Random Acts of Kindness. During October the City Council recognizes all Brooklyn Center residents and groups who have performed Random Acts of Kindness that help to make our community a wonderful place to live and work.

What Is A Random Act of Kindness?
A Random Act of Kindness is a selfless act performed by an individual, organization, or group towards someone or something. A kind act is "random" when it is spontaneous and unexpected – done simply out of the will to extend goodness without expecting anything in return. Most people try to fulfill obligations in life like doing their fair share of chores and supporting and comforting their families and friends - but these deeds are expected of us. When we make the extra effort of being kind when we aren't expected or required to and surprise someone, including ourselves – this is a Random Act of Kindness, a good deed that is truly the embodiment of compassion and caring.

Nominations - Deadline for 2016 is 4:30 p.m. Thursday, September 22, 2016
Anyone may nominate someone who has performed an act of kindness in the past year. You may send a card or letter or download the City's nomination form or complete the online nomination form. You may submit up to four (4) nominations.

Recognition Ceremony
All Random Acts of Kindness nominees are recognized by the City Council during an October regularly scheduled televised Council meeting and are presented a certificate.

We look forward to hearing from you. Join us in celebrating kindness in our community!
