The Kindness Exchange is part of the Kindness Project, developed through the Love Is Louder initiative, hosted by REMA, a Rotherham based charity. Love is Louder aims to bring people together positively.

During the pandemic communities have supported each other and shown kindness in numerous ways. The Kindness Project will celebrate and encourage further positivity in these uncertain times.

The initiative aims to connect communities through art activities and bring creativity and fun into your home.

How you can help

We need people to make up a small box of interesting things that can be taken to someone who is isolated and lonely at the moment. The idea behind the box is based on a time capsule idea, where you put in small items of little or no monetary value, that say something about you and about our lives now. The difference is your box will be opened within days. Full instructions will be provided.

We also need your help in finding the people who would like to receive a box, who are isolated and in need of some kindness. If you know of anyone please let us know.

If you feel ready for the challenge and we hope you are, please contact us at:

or through our facebook page:

@roarartspace or @LoveIsLouderRotherham

and we will organise a drop off or collection point for you.

The boxes need to be complete and ready for collection by the:

15th March 2021.
