Winter in Cincinnati, Ohio can be brutal, but thanks to some good samaritans, it’s easier for folks to warm up. All over the city, little random acts of kindness are appearing in the form of small care packages, bundled up in waterproof bags, there for anyone who needs them.
It’s part of the citywide campaign called #Kindflash. Organizers say the idea is to “deepen a sense of community” in the city with both spontaneous and coordinated acts of kindness to improve lives and bring people together.
One #Kindflash item found tied with a bright red ribbon had a blue fleece sweatshirt inside. The package came with a note reading in part, “If you’re cold and need a hug, please take me with you.”
