For The Family strives to encourage kindness in every form. It also serves the vulnerable and advocates on their behalf. These diverse activities exemplify its effort to enable people to honor the Golden Rule and be our brother's keeper
For The Family has created Kindness of the Heart as an ongoing celebration of the positive. This initiative nurtures and honors the simple kindness that is constantly shown by people...but has not received the recognition it deserves until now. People across the U.S. and Canada are encouraged to e-mail 1-minute smartphone videos that describe a wide variety of kind acts to ForTheFamilyTampa@gmail.com.
These are eligible for a Family Flame Award at the National FAM Awards the same way that movies can win an Oscar at the Academy Awards. The 4th Annual National FAM Awards will take place on the Friday before Thanksgiving in Tampa. Kindness of the Heart also features National Days of Kindness at the beginning of every season. This involves people who perform acts of kindness either individually or as a group, and then describe it in a 1-minute video e-mailed to ForTheFamilyTampa@gmail.com.
