WDM Day of Kindness

Mayor Gaer has proclaimed January 29, 2021 as the WDM Day of Kindness, brought to you by the WDM Leadership Academy

One part of the WDM Leadership Academy’s mission is to make a positive impact on the community. 

However, the impact doesn’t end when the program does. WDMLA Alumni continue to prioritize this responsibility for years to come. 

This year, WDMLA Alumni recognize the importance of kindness more than ever. Small acts of kindness can make the biggest difference in someone’s life. 

We challenge all West Des Moines community members to be intentional with acts of kindness on January 29th. 

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 29. Happy Day of Kindness, West Des Moines! #WDMstrong #WDMkind

Thank you to Mayor Gaer for signing this into effect at the WDM City Council meeting (view here beginning at minute 11:45) on January 19.
