The mayors of Snoqualmie and North Bend have proclaimed November 2023 as Kindness Month in a collaborative effort to enhance community spirit and support youth well-being through the Empower Youth Network’s Be Kind Snoqualmie Valley – #BeKindSV – campaign.
Mayor Ross of Snoqualmie and Mayor McFarland of North Bend, recognizing the power and necessity of kindness, have individually issued proclamations to celebrate and encourage acts of kindness across their respective cities. This campaign aims to foster a positive environment and establish consistent, proactive support within the Snoqualmie Valley, focusing on the youth and emphasizing the importance of kindness and inclusion.
The #BeKindSV campaign, integral to the Empower Youth Network’s Youth Suicide Prevention program, underscores the belief that kindness transcends the divisions of religion, politics, gender, and more, serving as a cornerstone of community connection. Both mayors agree that such acts can significantly improve the health and dynamics of the community, reinforcing the message that kindness can initiate a wave of positivity that reaches far beyond city limits.
Residents are encouraged to participate in this collective endeavor by integrating kindness into their daily lives, contributing to a stronger, more compassionate society. The full text of each mayor’s proclamation can be found on their respective city websites, inviting the community to engage with and promote the initiative.
