We believe the city of Austin is one of the kindest places on earth, and last week convinced us it’s true! Recently we held our SXSW KINDNESSPALOOZA at Rio, and kindness was definitely in the air. The day included a Kind Market, Irish coffee from Praxis and live music from a variety of talented musicians such as The Mrs, Ian Moore and Courtney Santana.
The Kind Market consisted of pop-up shops from Nordstroms, Kendra Scott, Estilo, Paper Place, Baylor Scott and White, Austin Deep and World Water, while delicious food and beverages were provided by Whitfield’s BBQ, Bougies Donuts and Tito’s. We had a full sized see-saw on site, and there was even a Kind Wall speaking words of encouragement as people walked by. One thing’s for sure, this was not your typical SXSW event!
Thank you Tribeza, Sun Radio, Ride Austin and Red Velvet Events for helping to make this event happen. And shoutout to Nordstrom, KIND Bars, and InLieu for being such rockin’ sponsors. KINDNESSPALOOZA was so fun and we’re grateful for all who came out to support Austin Kind. We believe anyone can be a Kind Leader in their community, and we hope you all left feeling empowered and encouraged.
Can’t wait for our next KINDNESSPALOOZA at Hill Country Galleria on May 5th. Hope to see you there!!
