Acts of Love and Kindness

Acts of Love and Kindness is a movement grown out of the spirit of giving and good deeds witnessed in the aftermath of the tragedy at Pulse Nightclub on June 12, 2016. The movement inspires the Orlando community and beyond to engage in volunteerism, share stories and show support through acts of love and kindness in the 49 days leading up to June 12. Those participating in Acts of Love and Kindness, April 25 – June 12, 2018, are encouraged to share their stories on social media using the hashtag: #ActLoveGive 

A part of the Acts of Love and Kindness movement, on June 12, 2018, bells will toll 49 times in unison around the world as a tribute to the victims lost during the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. Mothers of the victims are calling upon churches, temples, synagogues, mosques and businesses to join them by tolling their bells and showing solidarity with messages of love and kindness on their public signs.

Acts of Love and Kindness also supports the mission and the spirit of the OnePULSE Foundation. The onePULSE Foundation was established to create a sanctuary of hope following the tragic day in American history – Sunday, June 12, 2016 – to honor the 49 lives that were taken, the 68 others who were injured and the countless first responders and healthcare professionals who cared for the victims. For a list of OnePULSE Foundation programs and events, including information on the Annual Remembrance Ceremony, please click here.
