Large or small, acts of kindness matter. Kindness is never wasted, it’s contagious and can have profound consequences, a ripple effect. While you can’t always see the direct outcome, such altruism ripples out and touches many lives.
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.
