Inspired by 11-year-old Ruben Martinez’s El Paso Challenge to complete 22 random acts of kindness, the City of Fontana is joining in on the challenge with the “Fontana Kindness Challenge.”
The city is encouraging all residents to unite and spread a random act of kindness each day throughout August around the community.
Kindness is a gift that everyone can afford to give; residents can help spread kindness through simple acts such as saying hello to everyone they see in the morning, paying it forward at a drive-thru, or giving their neighbor a tray of cookies, said Mayor Acquanetta Warren.
“The Fontana Challenge is an opportunity for us as a city to unite by showing our neighbors, coworkers or even strangers that a little kindness can go a long way,” said Warren. “Random acts of kindness are contagious and can make a difference in the lives that need it the most.”
Warren asked residents to contribute by tagging their friends on social media and challenging them to the #FontanaKindnessChallenge. By using the hashtag, the City of Fontana will also share the post through its social media platforms. For those with private social media accounts, the city recommends direct messaging the city their Fontana Kindness Challenge post.
