Bethany Shaw illustrator artist designer – Artist Statement: This design is inspired by Kindness Week and our vision to celebrate a connected community. The individual dots represent each authentic member of our community and when we put all the dots together we create a beautiful shape that does not exist without the representation of many.

This logo recognizes that we are all unique members of a connected community, and when we as individuals overlap in between the two hearts, we influence and enhance each other to create something new and beautiful. The Kindness Connects Us Coloring Page asks children to think of a time they showed, saw, or received kindness! 

Kindness Connects Us is all over town! Download your own copy of our Kindness Connects Us coloring sheet HERE (available in English, Spanish and Portuguese). Write or draw in the hearts how you showed kindness, saw kindness or received kindness. Take a pic of your finished art to share with us @SPARKKIND and tag #KindnessConnectsUs, or bring your artwork back to our partners locations for the whole town to enjoy! 


Display the Kindness Connects Us Seal! Kindness Connects Us is a message that not only centers us on how to be with each other, and in community, but affirms the community we are, and our shared value of kindness. Download your seal HERE.Since we know kindness isn't just about any one week, we hope that you feel free to keep the seal displayed throughout the year!
