Local woman launches event to celebrate Kenmore

21 Acts of Kindness Challenge will celebrate Kenmore’s 21st birthday.

Nadia Silver believes birthdays should be celebrated — especially those belonging to her favorite city.

Silver moved to Kenmore two years ago and she instantly fell in love with the city.

“I love Kenmore. I’ve been to a lot of cities all over the country and I love Kenmore the most,” she said.

When she learned Kenmore will be entering its 21st year of being a city on Aug. 31, she said she wanted to do something to celebrate.

“Twenty-one is my favorite number and Kenmore is my favorite [city],” she said. “I wanted to do something for them and recognize what they’ve done.”

Inspired by YouTuber, Kristina Kuzmic, Silver created a Facebook event called, 21 Acts of Kenmorian Kindness Challenge.

“She did a challenge for her birthday,” Silver said. “I based a lot of the challenges on what she did but catered them toward Kenmore.”

The challenges are inexpensive and mostly free. Silver said all she wanted was to spread kindness throughout the city by neighbors helping neighbors.

The challenges are to be completed by Aug. 31.

Silver’s 21 Acts of Kenmorian Kindness Challenge include paying for a stranger’s laundry or dry cleaning, making cookies for a friend, picking up trash at a park, helping a single parent with chores and leaving encouraging notes around town.

“Bonus points for any of these done locally! There’s no limit on how much you do/give,” Silver posted on the Facebook event page. “Just as long as it meets all [minimum] criteria…Have fun and get creative with it by involving your friends/ family!”

Participants in the challenge need to send proof to nadiasilver3@gmail.com (upon their full completion of the challenge) and will be posted on Kenmore Neighbor’s Facebook page as shout outs with any and all related links, pics, videos and social media.

“This is just a reminder that [the world] is not all bad and a chance to recognize Kenmore and each other,” Silver said.
