Spread Kindness with Us as we end 2020
Help us raise $24,000 to finalize 2020 and bring in 2021!
Spread Kindness with Us and support the Kontagious initiatives with your end of the year donations!
We still need $24,000 to close our books for 2020 and begin 2021
2020 was a crazy Covid year, and yet we were able to support the Kontagious initiatives focus on the international graduate student community using kindness that shapes the world. We touch the lives of international graduate students enrolled at San Jose State University and Santa Clara University with kindness programs designed to ease their assimilation into the amazing culture of Silicon Valley.
All donations fund our various initiatives like:
Covid Assist (2020) ~ a needed initiative includes moving students to improved living conditions, providing multiple grocery runs and deliveries as well as transportation for those in need of medical care. We also found an important need to create safe, weekly, small pod-group gatherings with John & Carol Christian.
College to Kareer Seminars ~ designed to develop mentoring relationships within the business community. This year we focused on mentorship using Zoom
Airport Pickup and Welcome To America Dinners ~ designed to orient the new international student to the cultural ways of American life here in Silicon Valley. Completed the January 2020 Pickup, will resume both January and August airport pickups in 2021!
Family Hosting Holiday Events ~ designed to introduce some of the special holidays of our community like Thanksgiving Dinner, or a hiking event to relax and experience the redwoods. 2020 was transformed into Holiday Meal Deliveries
Make a Tribute Donation and include the story of cultural assimilation of those who helped you or a loved one connect with our local culture.
