Orlando United Day: A Day of Love and Kindness

To continue the spirit of giving and good deeds witnessed in the aftermath of the tragedy at Pulse nightclub, “Acts of Love and Kindness” is a homegrown movement that inspires the Orlando community and beyond to engage in volunteerism, share their stories and show love by supporting those still in need. Orlando United Day, is dedicated to honoring the memory of the 49 taken, supporting survivors and recognizing the compassion and love displayed by our community.

Individuals, groups and businesses are encouraged to participate on June 12 in Acts of Love and Kindness. Whether  in Central Florida, across the state of Florida, or around the world, showing love and kindness is something we all have the power to do. Be inspired by the 49 Acts of Love created by parents of the 49 taken to share how they would like to see love and kindness on this day.
