As the city celebrates love, respect, and kindness, Provo city officials share that each day is filled with events to encourage many to pay it forward. One event is a community panel.

The third event, is Kindness Bingo. This family-friendly game is perfect for any game night you have planned this week.

According to the city, the game not only seeks out a clever way to share kindness but it also aims toward connecting with the community on a larger scale.

Bingo challenges include tasks like: Think of someone who needs a lift – heart attack their house, praise a local business online, write encouraging notes and leave them around your neighborhood, etc.
