Children’s Advocacy Center of SWFL and WearTheFund Collaborate on a #KindLee Fundraising Initiative

By February 18, 2022 February 26th, 2022 Press Releases

The Children’s Advocacy Center of SWFL (CAC) and WearTheFund (WTF) have teamed up to promote Random Acts of Kindness for a #KindLee initiative. This collaboration features a new #KindLee merchandise store found at kindlee.wearthefund.com to help support the children served by the local agency. Through the end of March, 100% of the proceeds from every purchase supports CAC children, plus other kindness programs presented by #KindLee, as part of a #KindLee project in April.

This trifecta partnership of #KindLee, WTF, and CAC is working to create community spirit through Random Acts of Kindness. This particular #KindLee project will encourage the CAC’s Pine Manor after-school program students, ages 5-12, to learn about fostering deeper involvement and volunteerism to others through Random Acts of Kindness in ways such as writing letters to seniors or cleaning up their neighborhood. Fundraising for the project supports the CAC and the students’ #KindLee Kind Stars scholarships by shopping and sharing the merchandise store.

Noelle Casagrande, Director of Client Care & Charity Relations with WearTheFund, launched this particular #KindLee project through a social media campaign on Valentine’s Day to spread the love. “I am so proud to be leading a #KindLee project, and it felt so appropriate to launch this during the week of Valentine’s Day and Random Acts of Kindness Day, to show love for our community,” said Casagrande. “Diana Willis and Jennifer Nelson inspired me to lead a #KindLee project after witnessing their efforts. Helping the Children’s Advocacy Center is a perfect fit to help children learn and experience empathy and kindness to others.”
