Make the World a Better Place With Kindness Kits

Who couldn't use more kindness in their life? The Denver Public Library has developed Kindness Kits for adults aged 50+ to promote connection, expression, justice and joy.

The summer kit focuses on REFLECTION with the natural world as a guide. Inside this kit, you will find materials for simple projects like feeding wild birds, starting a vegetable garden, and planting wildflowers. We hope these seeds will help participants grow. Let’s make 2021 a year of kindness! 

The summer kit will be available on Tuesday, June 29th, at the following locations while supplies last: Bear Valley Branch Library, Park Hill Branch Library, Sam Gary Branch Library, Schlessman Branch Library, University Hills Branch Library and Woodbury Branch Library. Please call the branches for availability. If you are told one is available, then ask the branch to set is aside for you. Kits are first come, first served.

Didn’t get a kit this time? Check out the instructions (bird seed instructions, wildflower instructions) to recreate this project on your own or check out the Grow with DPL blogs to learn more about vegetable gardening.

If you missed our spring kit, you can still do the activities. That one focused on EXPRESSION. Here are the instructions for a Painted Kindness Rock and Penpal Postcard Activities.  

Looking for other ways to feel connected? Embark on a kindness adventure with Kindness Club, a quarterly program promoting kindness through simple acts. 

If you have any questions please feel free to email Lily at 

Kindness Kits are generously funded by the Next50 Initiative
