Shout-out to the Finkelstein sisters from Napa who came up with an idea for a festival that we LOVE! The inaugural "Napa Valley Kindness Day" is this weekend in Yountville and it sounds AMAZING! Here is the story on the event from the website:
"The idea for Be Kind sprouted from the mind of our family friend Laurie Phillips of New York City. Phillips became aware of the self-imposed isolation of her fellow New Yorkers and how there was very little interaction happening among them. As a way to break the ice, she made the now iconic “Be Kind” buttons and would wear them while out and about in the city. Anytime someone would compliment her button, she would take it off and gift it to that person. A friendly conversation would start naturally and smiles would ensue. The buttons would then be paid forward by their new owners and are now found all over New York and the surrounding areas.
On a recent trip to New York to visit Laurie, Talulah and Ruby were really impressed by these friendly interactions, so they decided to spread kindness in Napa Valley and ordered the same Be Kind buttons. They now wear Be Kind buttons everywhere they go and give them to those that comment on them. People all over Napa are wearing the Be Kind buttons and spreading kindness!"
We think this is great! If you want to attend, make sure you do so via their Facebook page and we will see you Saturday!
