All Day Supervisors Proclaim the Week of February 12 - February 18, 2023 as Kindness Week in Calaveras Count
San Andreas, CA...Seeds of Kindness was formed in 1994 in Angels Camp, spearheaded by Jim & Judy Bergantz, then owners of Bergantz Nursery. A small group of local residents are working together to encourage and promote random acts of kindness throughout Calaveras County. In 1995, the Angels Camp City Council passed a proclamation that Angels Camp is a Kindness Zone. We are asking the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors to pass a county-wide Kindness Zone proclamation as well.


This year, as in the past, the Seeds of Kindness project will encourage and work with Calaveras County schools, organizations and businesses to create an increased awareness for being kind. The light blue ribbons will be distributed county-wide; when a ribbon-bearer sees an act of kindness being done, they are to sign the back of the ribbon and pass it on. The idea is that the ribbons will encourage acts of kindness throughout the county.
For 2023, the project has purchased 5,000 light blue rapid wrist bands with the Message: "KINDNESS STARTS WITH ME" to be distributed to our schools and community. Blue "pass it on ribbons" and supplies are available for the schools upon request.

We invite everyone to join us in celebrating the 2023 Ripples of Kindness Project in Calaveras County February 12-18, 2023. To learn more about random acts of kindness activities, visit the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation website at www.theseedsofkindness.com
