District 5040 Interators invite you to participate in our Acts of Kindness initiative from April 17th - April 23rd 2022! For the 2022 year, we have designed a COVID-19 friendly campaign for your clubs and/or individual members to take part in.  After all, kindness is free.

Rotary International was founded by Paul Harris, who was born April 19th, 1868. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on February 23, 1905. Professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships and give back to their communities. 

Rotary Acts of Kindness 2022 serves as a unique and fun initiative to better our communities and bring kindness to the world in these times of hardship. In recognition of Rotary’s founder, our Acts Of Kindness week will take place over Paul Harris’ birthday week (April 17th - April 23rd, 2022). We hope to expand this project to a global scale and involve as many Rotarians, Rotaractors, and Interactors as possible! This year, our Acts of Kindness Committee has designed a Bingo card for clubs, groups, and/or individuals to use throughout the week and complete as many kind acts as they wish. Those who complete 5 in a row, share a picture of their kind acts on Instagram or Facebook, and tag @rotaryactofkindness will be entered in a prize draw. Rotary will donate $100 to a charity of the winner’s choice. 

Please use the poster files below and/or instagram image at the top of the page for the Bingo card and promotional poster. Your club is more than welcome to create their own Bingo card for members to use. For Interact Clubs, the promotional poster can be put up around schools to promote the event and the Bingo cards can be made available to club members to distribute among classes and peers. These can also be posted on your club’s social platforms, websites, and more.
