When Is the Right Time?
Show the world some love – you can make a difference today. Do you have something to give: A helping hand, a simple act of kindness, your time, or talents. What are you waiting for?
“Not everyday is going to offer us a chance to save someone’s life. But, everyday offers us an opportunity to affect one.”

It’ll be 4 minutes and 40 seconds well spent.
One for One: Share Your Giving Story – Get Some Swag.
Stubbornly Optimistic is an energy and attitude that can make a difference in one’s life, in relationships, and in a community. This is exactly why we love seeing individuals and the community embrace and spread this positive, pride movement. Frankly, it’s not about a t-shirt. It’s about fostering a deeper connection to Fond du Lac, building stronger relationships with the amazing people here, and igniting engaging conversations to discuss why we’re truly #StubbornlyOptimistic about all the awesome things happening now AND in the future.
Your turn to spread some love. Show the universe how #StubbornlyOptimistic you are about making a difference in someone’s life and/or in our community.
HOW IT WORKS:
Today – Valentine’s day – through the end of the month (2/14 – 2/28), we’ll celebrate ANYONE who is able to win our hearts with their giving story and/or act of kindness.
Post to Facebook – tagging #StubbornlyOptimistic – with a written post and photo/video to receive your choice of FREE Stubbornly Optimistic swag*. If/when you capture our hearts with your giving post, we’ll reach out to coordinate your swag selection and pickup!
It’s easy really. Don’t overthink it. Here are some examples to get some ideas flowing:
- Fondy Food Pantry recently shared their need to fill their shelves back up. Head to the market and share a pic of your grocery bag donation or drop-off.
- Support the Solution Center’s 12 Months of Humanity Program: February is toilet paper!
- Make a clean-up pass through a city park
- Support local dementia care – donate used or new iPods, CDs, iTunes gift cards, legos, puzzles or other crafts to Music & Memory
- Mentor! Get in touch with Boys & Girls Club of FDL, Big Brothers Big Sisters, or Fond du Lac Literacy Services
- Give the gift of play: sponsor a family membership at the Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac
- Support Life Enforcement’s TCO’d movement – simply spread kindness, generosity and joy…. capture the moment or share the story to inspire others to do the same.
