Spread Kindness This Summer: Deposit Your Ideas at Sunmark!

Sunmark Credit Union and the Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation have partnered with Beekman 1802, a company founded by an act of kindness, to celebrate the Summer of Kindness. Starting in May and running all summer long, we’re inviting children up to age 12 to “deposit kindness” by submitting their ideas on how they would spread kindness in their local communities.
Our Kindness Crew will be selecting ideas throughout the summer – working with children to bring these Kindness Projects to life!

How Can You Participate?

1. Ask an adult to visit any Sunmark Credit Union location to pick up a kindness form or download and print one here.


2. Describe your kindness idea on the front of the form and have an adult complete the contact information on the back. Have them check out the rules and regulations below.


3. Share the kindness! Have your parent/guardian post a photo of you with your form on social media – be sure to tag @SunmarkCU, @SunmarkFoundation, @Beekman1802Mercantile and hashtag #summerofkindness on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (social media post not required to be selected).


4. Deposit your idea into the Goat Banks located at any Sunmark branch (excluding Albany-VA Medical Center, Owens Corning, and Price Chopper Headquarters locations) or submit the form via email to kindness@sunmark.org.


5. A Kindness Crew comprised of Sunmark Credit Union, Beekman 1802 and Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation volunteers will review all submissions and select ideas to become Kindness Projects to be fulfilled throughout the Summer of Kindness.


6. If your idea is selected, your parent/guardian will be notified. We will work with you to bring your idea to life and spread kindness in your community! You and your Kindness Project will be highlighted on our website, social media and may even be featured on local news outlets. You will also receive a “Kindness Package” to thank you for your kindness.


Good luck, have fun and remember that no idea is too small - a little bit of kindness goes a long way!
