Northwest Medical Arts Aims to Make Pierce County Kinder

UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash., Jan. 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In an effort to display unity for the community, Northwest Medical Arts (NWMA) launches a kindness campaign with Pierce County businesses to recognize Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17, 2024. NWMA established this initiative to show the power of random acts of kindness to bring joy to both givers and recipients.

This Pierce County kindness campaign led by NWMA symbolizes a collective commitment to inspire and uplift the South Sound region and become the epicenter for kindness in our state. NWMA aims to showcase the power of kindness by inspiring businesses and individuals alike to contribute to the well-being of the community through simple acts of kindness, from buying coffee for a stranger to sending flowers to a senior center or thanking a veteran.

Kindness Campaign Overview

Join NWMA to report random acts of kindness received or given by visiting and using the hashtag #piercecountykindness on social media by tagging @nwmedicalarts. All participants are eligible for a $500 Spa Rejuvenation Experience from NWMA.
