Gov. Cox declares ‘One Kind Act a Day’ Utah initiative
SALT LAKE CITY– Gov. Spencer Cox declared the Beehive State will be known as the “Be Kind State for the day in a new “One Kind Act a Day” initiative.
Established by the Semnani Family Foundation, the day is to encourage everyone– here and across the globe– to deliver one act of kindness each day.
In an event with other prominent local leaders at the Gallivan Center, Cos stated, “Kindness can be as simple as a single smile, a thoughtful text message to a friend, or just a small, unexpected gesture, the effects can be powerful. One act of kindness can brighten a moment, lift someone’s spirits, and turn a bad day into a good story.”
According to a release from the event, “To spread the message, The Semnani Family Foundation has launched ThePowerOfKind.org, a hub for all things kindness, filled with ideas for acts of kindness, news about the One Kind Act a Day campaign, and inspirational content. Billboards, social media campaigns, and a video featuring a collection of Utahns sharing what kindness means to them have also been produced.”
“Now, more than ever, we need more kindness in the world,” said Semnani, an acclaimed engineer and businessman who has since gone on to lead numerous charitable works through his foundation. “If just one person can do one intentional kind thing for someone else each day, that can lead to another act of kindness and another and another. Kindness can be contagious.”
