WDM Day of Kindness

Governor Kim Reynolds and West Des Moines Mayor Russ Trimble have officially declared January 28 as Day of Kindness for our community and entire state.

Alumni of the WDM Leadership Academy embraced the program’s priority of positively impacting the community when they created this initiative back in early 2021. They recognize the importance of kindness, now more than ever. Small acts of kindness can make the biggest difference in someone’s life. 

We challenge all West Des Moines community members and Iowans everywhere to be intentional with acts of kindness on January 28th. 

Pay it forward in your line for coffee, show appreciation for our frontline workers, shovel a neighbor’s driveway, send a thoughtful text to someone who might need some positive words.

Big or small, monetary or action-oriented, anonymous or direct…let’s make a difference on January 28. Get ready for Day of Kindness, Iowans! #WDMstrong #WDMkind #IowaStrong #IowaKind
