Scandia’s 1,000 Acts of Kindness Project

“When you are kind to others, it not only changes you, it changes the world.” - Harold Kushner

The City of Scandia is challenging its residents to log I,000 acts of kindness in 30 days. Go to to describe your act of kindness and to have it counted towards our goal. We will post Monday through Friday in the Scandia’s Facebook page the total count to date and also our favorite act of kindness for that day. Our goal is to remind people to be kind to each other regardless of differences and that we are ONE community.


Children’s Stories on Acts of Kindness – Scandia Parks and Recreation Committee is holding a story contest for Scandia Elementary School students in Kindergarten to 6th grade.  The stories are about an act of kindness and how it made a difference in the world.

Scandia’s 1,000 Acts of Kindness Button Giveaway – The City of Scandia will make 400 buttons that will read Scandia’s 1,000 Acts of Kindness. The buttons are free to local businesses to give to their customers, there will be a money jar by each button display for people to donate to the 200 Ukrainian refugees taken in by our Sister City, Mellerud, Sweden.

Award ceremony for Children’s Story Contest – Mayor Maefsky will preside over the Stories of Kindness on Saturday, May 21st,  at 11 a.m. at Lilleskogen Park in Scandia. There will be kindness stickers, kindness buttons, and cookies given to all the children. The winners for the best stories will be announced and prizes will be awarded. This event is sponsored by Scandia Parks and Recreation Committee.

Scandia is hoping to do its small part in helping to heal the divide in our country.  We feel strongly that our residents have more in common than we have differences. We hope that Scandia’s 1,000 Acts of Kindness Project will show how much we care about each other, and inspire other people and communities to do acts of kindness to make the world a better place to live.

Kindness is free; let’s pass it on!
