Kindness is contagious

A unique experiment of humanity and kindness founded in the Merrimack Valley

Reimagining Kindness Together; Changing the Merrimack Valley Forever

Past

Past

We began with an idea during the COVID-19 pandemic. The simple thought was that people would need a safe community space to connect and share needs that others might be able to fill. We hoped for a few hundred to join the Facebook Group, but it became thousands within weeks.
Our Story

Present

Present

We are a diverse community of kindhearted people 10,000+ strong in the Merrimack Valley reimagining kindness together and creating over 100,000 kind acts since we started in 2020. This is FUN!
Join Us

Future

Future

We are expanding rapidly with strategic partnerships and innovative programs that will spread more kindness to more people, faster and more efficiently.
Get Involved

We are a true collaboration of nearly 10,000 individuals, businesses, nonprofits, and municipalities across the Merrimack Valley region of Massachusetts. Everyone works together to contribute items, talent, time, effort, tasks, and skills to positively impact the community. Together, we create a powerful force of good, spreading kindness and community support wherever it is needed throughout the region. We have experienced firsthand that “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” (Aristotle).

5 PROGRAMS; ENDLESS VOLUNTEERING POSSIBILITIES

Infinite is an understatement when we refer to the ways one person or group can volunteer at TKC. The Kindness Collaborative IS volunteering – stepping up and stepping into action by the community for the community in myriad ways. We invite individuals, groups, associations, businesses, clubs, and organizations to make a real impact on our culture.

We were able to get nearly 1000 diapers and a ton of awesome kids clothes to Community Giving Tree (a TKC Member Organization) thanks to donors and collections from our egg hunt.

One donor was a mother who went through some devastating times during the flooding last summer. We helped her get through it and now that she's back on her feet, she wanted to give back to the community who supported her, donating over 200 diapers and a bunch of clothes!

Today, we were able to deliver some kindness to three incredible individuals and families from Haverhill, Methuen and North Andover.
We want them to know that they are strong, brave and fierce, even in the face of Cancer.
We, the community believe in them and will be there to support them every step of the way.
