Starbucks teams up with WPXI to celebrate Kindness Week

PITTSBURGH — WPXI-TV and Channel 11 News will be celebrating kindness in the Pittsburgh area all this week on television and here on WPXI.com in partnership with the Center For Loving Kindness and more than a dozen Starbucks locations across the area. At each of the Starbucks locations, patrons will see a sticker on their cups and food bags celebrating kindness, while customers inside the stores can write postcards with a note of kindness to a loved one, friend, colleague or to a stranger.

Each morning on Channel 11 Morning News, we will unveil a Kindness Quote of the Day. Quotes this week run the gamut from the mission of the Center For Loving Kindness to words from Desmond Tutu and Princess Diana.

Each evening on Channel 11 News at 5, we will profile some of the many people in Western Pennsylvania who make it their life’s work to spread kindness, lift up their neighbors and give hope during unsettling times. After celebrating America last week with the incredible Pittsburgh fireworks, we hope this week to turn the spotlight on those in our communities every day working for a better tomorrow. If you see or know something worth sharing, please use the hashtag #PGHKind on social media. We hope you will join with WPXI, the Center For Loving Kindness and the below Starbucks locations all week to help spread some kindness in your neighborhood.
