A Better Region 8 - 'GR8 Acts of Kindness' campaign

ABR8.jpg ABR8.jpg

Giving back is more than just an idea here in Region 8.  It's something that all of us who live here do joyfully and it's truly one of the things that makes the people of Region 8 so special. 

We're teaming up with the folks at First Community Bank for the GR8 Acts of Kindness campaign.  Each month we're giving away $408 to someone who needs a little help, or needs to be shown that they're loved.  We'll feature these inspiring stories on Region 8 News. 

To get the GR8 Acts of Kindness campaign started we need your help.  Log on to KAIT8.com/ActsOfKindness to nominate someone who you feel should get $408. Make sure to tell us their story, why you believe the person should be nominated and how helping them will make a difference in their life.

Paying it forward is something we should all be doing and now we can all do it together.  GR8 Acts of Kindness can come in many forms like lending a hand, a smile or helping when someone needs it.  It can make a big difference in someone's life and it makes this A Better Region 8.
