3rd Annual Spread Goodness Day
Location: Allen Neighborhood Center / Allen Market Place
Address: 1611 E. Kalamazoo St. Lansing, MI
Admission: Free
Contact: Anna Dravland
(906) 360-9928

Join us for the 3rd Annual Spread Goodness Day event on March 13, 2020.

This event is to inspire a global day of simple goodness by encouraging individuals, businesses & organizations to spread some goodness, on this one day, to show the explosive power that one act of goodness multiplied by hundreds, thousands, and maybe millions has to change the world every single day.

What do you do for Spread Goodness Day? Spread goodness. To whoever you want, however you want and to whatever extreme you want. Celebrate goodness in your unique, do-gooder ways! Volunteer, buy a coffee, open a door or host your own event!

It is not about paying it forward.

It is not about service.

It is not about telling us, the internet or anyone at all.

It’s about Goodness in whatever way is natural to you.

The first year exploded with over 10,000 acts of goodness recorded throughout the world and the second year over 20,000 with thousands more unrecorded. (Psssst: You don’t have to record it for it to change the world)

It’s simple.

Let’s spread goodness and change the world together.

MORE GOODNESS! The goodness is so good when we do good together! Visit to learn about a fresh spread goodness challenge!
