In celebration of Random Acts of Kindness Week from Feb. 15-21, United Way’s Volunteer Center and select local locations of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf are teaming up to encourage niceties among Las Vegans.
Good Samaritans will be rewarded with a free specialty coffee drink on Monday, Feb. 22 or Tuesday, Feb. 23, as a thank you for their random act of kindness. Coupons for the complimentary regular-sized specialty drink will be emailed to those who report their nice gesture online at coffeebeanlv.com/kindness, and are redeemable at neighborhood locations of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Las Vegas and Henderson.
“The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Nevada is a locally owned and operated organization that cares about the people in its community, so partnering with the United Way and the Volunteer Center of Southern Nevada for Random Acts of Kindness Week was a natural fit,” said Phil Patent, president and chief operating officer for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Nevada franchise. “We are proud to support the pay-it-forward concept and can’t wait to see what niceties are reported online.”
United Way’s Volunteer Center is offering ideas for qualifying activities throughout the week by posting inspirational messages on its Facebook and Twitter pages. “A random act of kindness can be very simple,” said Robin Kelley, director of the Volunteer Center of Southern Nevada.” Ideas range from simply writing a thank you note to someone, or complimenting everyone you encounter on a single day, to donating blood or volunteering your time through our center.”
Further ideas and suggestions on random acts of kindness and more information about the promotion can be found at coffeebeanlv.com/kindness. Those looking to volunteer their time during this national week of humanitarianism should visit the Volunteer Center of Southern Nevada at volunteercentersn.org, or follow United Way on Facebook or Twitter (uwsn.org/connected).
