FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE FAMILY PLACE – BE KIND UTAH CAMPAIGN

1525 North 200 West, Logan, UT

– May 7 – June 16, 2019 –

(LOGAN,  UT)—The  Family  Place  invites  residents  in  Utah to  participate in  their  Be Kind  

Utah  campaign  to increase and build an awareness of acts of kindness throughout the state. Be 

Kind Utah seeks “1 million ways in 40 days,” and they are asking the community to help them achieve 

1 million acts of kindness during the dates of May 7 to June 16, 2019 in conjunction with Utah 

Family Month.


The purpose of the campaign is to:

•     Build connections between people

•     Increase compassion in Utah’s communities

•     Support Utah’s efforts to become a trauma-informed state by bolstering emotional resilience

•     Strengthen community bonds by developing, empathy, respect and humanity among community 

members

•     Provide community members with support by providing information about community resources

“We already live in such a caring community,” said Esterlee Molyneux, the Executive Director of  

The Family Place, “and we are excited to recognize Utah residents making an increased effort to 

perform acts of kindness to achieve one million ways in forty days. We recently learned of a family 

in our community whose loved one had attempted suicide.  Overwhelmed and in shock, they went to 

breakfast to decompress and try and figure out their next  steps.   Their  waitress  approached 

them and told them someone had paid for  their  meal.   The  person that performed that act of 

kindness had no idea what that family was going through, but it brought light to them in one of 

their most challenging moments.   With tears in their eyes they explained the power of the light 

anonymously shared with them during a very dark time.  We never know what a person has gone 

through.  We are advocating that our initial responses are empathy, compassion and kindness.  

That’s what we are hoping to achieve.”


Community members can report their acts of kindness by sharing them on social media platforms with 

the hashtag

#BeKindUT2019 and tagging The Family Place Utah. They can also visit The Family Place to write acts 

of kindness on paper hearts which will be displayed at each of their locations.  Schools and 

businesses have committed to have filling our hearts and displaying them in their respective 

spaces.  Examples of acts of kindness may include giving someone a compliment, helping others with 

chores, picking up trash, holding the door open for someone, or leaving a generous tip.


“It  includes  any act  that  shows  gratitude  or  consideration for  others,”  said Molyneux.  

“We’re hoping that  this kindness movement will start in families’ homes and then work its way into 

the broader community.   Kindness builds connections.  Connections build resilience.”


The Family Place will hold a press conference on May 1, 2019 at 1:15 p.m. at The Family Place’s 

Logan Center, 1525 N 200 West, Logan, Utah, to share more details about Be Kind Utah. The public is 

invited and encouraged to attend.


“There is no doubt in my mind that we can work together to record one million acts of kindness.  We 

invite and encourage everyone to participate -- children, parents, families, youth groups. We hope 

people will really support this movement and get creative in how they can increase kindness and 

resiliency in our state.”
