Touch-A-Life Foundation Announces World Kindness Day 2022

The hybrid event will celebrate individuals and organizations committed to supporting global sustainability goals through kindness and giving.

As the global supply chain continues to endure the long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic amidst the Russia-Ukraine war, global growth is expected to slow by nearly 3% according to the World Bank’s 2022 Global Economic Prospects report. This economic decline directly impacts underprivileged and underrepresented populations, restricting the availability of food, water, clothing, housing, healthcare, and other basic human essentials as outlined in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The hybrid, day-long event will unite non-profits, corporates, youth, philanthropists, and citizens from around the world, who are committed to creating a sustainable future through kindness and giving. Featuring over 100 world-class leaders and dozens of sustainability experts, TAL World Kindness Day 2022 will include inspiring keynotes, educational panel discussions, diverse local entertainment, and networking opportunities. Food and beverages will be served throughout the day, including wine tastings provided by local wineries.

Touch-A-Life Foundation Adds Chris Funk as New Board Advisor

As a TALScouts board advisor, Chris will help provide his educational expertise and resources to further develop the TALScouts program, encouraging students to volunteer to give back to their community. Touch-A-Life’s TALScouts program is designed to build social entrepreneurship skills, access to corporate internships, while earning voluntary hours by bringing the local community needs to the TALGiving crowdfunding platform, all virtual—so that they can continue to learn and help out their local community from a distance.
