Sparking Kindness at The New Mexico Bowl

Student Athlete Day of Kindness

Follow along with us as the student athletes in the 2019 New Mexico Bowl spread kindness to students across Albuquerque! San Diego State and Michigan Central are coming together to show the world that even football rivals can show kindness to others. This year, student athletes will visit the children of Carrie Tingley Hospital and Pueblo of Isleta Elementary School, and give each of them their very own Kindness Bear. Follow along December 19th on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Kindness Tour

Join us as we unite our country in kindness! Starting Spring 2020, we are kicking off our Kindness Tour starting in Albuquerque, New Mexico and ending in Colchester, Vermont. We’ll have many stops along the way to spread kindness across cities near and far.
We believe kindness can be found everywhere. So, we want to show our support to more places and organizations making a difference along the way! If you know of a person or organization spreading kindness in your town, we want to know about it! Use our contact form and bring the kindness tour to your town.

Why Albuquerque and Colchester?

Both Albuquerque and Colchester hold a special place in Jennifer’s story. Her hometown of Colchester, VT taught her the values that shaped the kind, loving, caring, and sharing person we knew.

Jennifer and Michael Riordan took a leap of faith and moved across the country to make Albuquerque, NM their home. Jennifer touched the lives of countless people in both cities through her love for life and many passion projects. So, it’s only fitting that our first “Kindness Tour” begins in Albuquerque and ends in Colchester!

Our stops along the way will include:

  • Albuquerque, New Mexico
  • Amarillo, TX
  • Springfield, MO
  • Richmond, IN
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Buffalo, NY
  • Colchester, VT

… And more to come in 2020.
