Nominate Someone for the Matt Kurtz Kindness Award

It’s Time to Nominate Someone Who Inspires You for the Matt Kurtz Kindness Award

Help us to honor people who make kindness a way of life

It’s time we recognize people for the good they do through their everyday small acts of kindness – people who show up and do whatever needs to be done. They give generously of themselves with no expectation of reward or recognition. They do small good deeds – and sometimes huge good deeds – just because they can.

For these awesome people, kindness is a way of life. They make our world a better place.

They are unsung heroes and “Matt’s Kindness Ripples On” believes they are the people we should be admiring and emulating. So, we are looking for candidates for the Matt Kurtz Kindness Award. The winner will receive a certificate and a $250 check in acknowledgment of their outstanding kindness and compassion.

We need your help to find these people. We need you to nominate someone who inspires you with their kindness – nominate them so we can all appreciate and be inspired by them.
You can nominate someone by filling out the form here.

Nominations must be received by October 15, 2019. 
The award winner will be announced November 1, 2019.

This award is in honor of Matt Kurtz (1985-2017), a young man whose personal philosophy was to live an honorable, compassionate and non-judgmental life – to give for the sake of giving, to expect nothing in return, to be aware of the world around him and to step in to help others without being asked whenever he saw the need. Matt believed in the ripple effect of a simple act of kindness – like a pebble dropped in water, it goes on and on. You can find out more about how Matt lived his life, examples of his many acts of kindness, big and small, and why this award was created on MattsKindnessRipplesOn.com.
