Today’s #BeKind21 message is from VolunteerMatch.

Our basic human kindness is the heart of how we serve the growing needs in our communities. Recovery and renewal springs ultimately from the seed of profound human connection. 

VolunteerMatch exists to foster this connection through serving and empowering nonprofits to accomplish their missions — organizations who are extending their kindness and giving back to communities to support them when they need it most.

COVID-19 has had a massive impact on communities across the country and served to magnify the racial, social, and economic inequalities in our society. It is especially true when we look at the learning and relational losses students have suffered due to the pandemic.

That’s why after witnessing the urgent need to help students, we are partnering with nonprofits in 2021 to support kids to be ready for school in 2021 and beyond. Everyone has something to contribute to support others serving young people through tutoring. Click here to find opportunities to tutor. 

Beyond tutoring there are so many ways to make a positive impact in your communities. Being a volunteer is the ultimate act of kindness, and contributing to something greater outside of ourselves makes us feel good. 

Your kindness challenge today: Start today by volunteering around something you love and feel passionately about. If you don’t know where to begin, one great place to start is through helping a child reach their full potential by becoming a tutor.

Need some more inspiration? With over 7M volunteers needed in 29 distinct cause areas on VolunteerMatch, you decide how you want to make a difference.

In Kindness,
