Kindness is Coming to Adams Morgan, Washington, DC!
The Adams Morgan neighborhood is traditionally known for it’s night clubs and party scene and the multicultural restaurants and shops that give you a taste of countries all over the world.
Well this February, this iconic neighborhood will be known for much more. Adams Morgan Main Street is highlighting Adams Morgan to participate in the official Random Acts of Kindness Week (2/13 – 2/19). The Adams Morgan Random Acts of Kindness Event will take place on Wednesday, February 15, 2012.
The intention is to light up the neighborhood with kindness. There will be groups of people performing all sorts of random acts of kindness (encouraging smiles, giving compliments and hugs, helping with groceries, etc.) on different corners of Adams Morgan to make people happy as they pass by and go along their way. It is also encouraged to donate goods to the nearby non-profit organizations or even the neighborhood fire and police departments. Participating businesses in the area will be offering discounts, specials and even random acts of kindness to their customers!
There will be tons of entertainment in the center of Adams Morgan (18th St. & Columbia Rd.) to get those feel good endorphins alive and moving and ignite an atmosphere of joy and liveliness. Entertainment includes hula hooping, the beautiful sounds of an a cappella group, Zumba dancing and fun, an Afro-Brazilian band playing Samba Reggae music, and the night will be topped off with a free comedy show at one of the local lounges.
If you would like to be a part of the Random Acts of Kindness giving that will be taking place, or you simply want to catch the plethora of entertainment for the evening, visit this website for more information.
This is going to be a great event that will bring light, love and kindness to a worthy area. Don’t miss out on enjoying and participating in Adams Morgan’s kindness!
