Covid-19 Response

Give Kindness Dallas

We're Stronger Together.

Join us in a local challenge to get 1,000 acts of kindness in our community, starting May 15! When you share your act of kindness, $500 in direct cash assistance will be provided to families in Dallas impacted by COVID-19

Here’s how it works:


Post your act of kindness to social media and consider challenging your friends to post by tagging them the more people who share, the more families in Dallas will receive their $500.

Get creative! We’ve been inspired by a phone call to someone who lives alone, groceries sent to someone who needs them, or a card for someone whose birthday party was canceled. There are endless ways to reach out to the people around us what are you inspired to do?


Include #GiveTogetherNowDallas and tag Stand Together Foundation. Find Stand Together Foundation on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Is your account private? If so, please:

a.) make sure the act of kindness post is set for public viewing,
b.) Double check to make sure that the privacy settings on your posts are set to public so we can see your posts. 


That’s it!

Once our community moderators see and confirm your post, we’ll provide $500 to a Dallas family impacted by COVID-19.

Give Kindness

A phone call to someone who lives alone. Groceries sent to someone that you know needs them. A card for someone whose birthday party was canceled. There are endless ways to reach out to the people around us. Have you done something to help someone in need? Tell us your story, because it could mean a direct cash payment for a family in need.
