SEPTEMBER 2022

21 years ago, the world learned a poignant lesson in compassion, generosity, and finding light & community in the darkest of moments. Inspired by the Newfoundlanders who opened their arms, hearts, and homes to strangers without a second thought, for 5 days, we will honor, commemorate, and come together to spread kindness and give back.

“On September 11th, we honor what was lost; on September 12th, we commemorate what we’ve found.”

JOIN US FOR 5 DAYS OF GIVING BACK AND COMMEMORATING.

  • MONDAY, 9.12: PAY IT FORWARD DAY
  • PAY IT FORWARD 9/11
    Join Kevin T’s ripple effect by doing 3 acts of kindness in and around your community. Then, pay it forward by inspiring others to do the same. Join Kevin’s mission to do 22,000 good deeds for 2022 and the 11 Days of Kindness & Unity campaign from September 1-11.
  • LITTLE WORDS PROJECT
    Little Words Project® aims to inspire and encourage people to be kind to themselves and to pay that kindness forward, one bracelet at a time. Members of our Broadway company made custom Come From Away bracelets to pay forward to people in New York City.
  • DAY OF SERVICE
    As we do each year, Come From Away will join 9/11 Day of Service in their ongoing mission to transform the anniversary of 9/11 into a worldwide day of unity and doing good, and to encourage millions of people to remember and pay tribute each 9/11 through good deeds.

  • STOP THE WORLD, TAKE A PICTURE & GIVE BACK
    Today, we want to encourage you to take a moment to capture the beauty of community while also taking time to reflect on your own. Take some time today to be mindful and then share your photos and tag our partners to spread the word & give back to important causes.

  • NY4P’s Daffodil Project is the largest annual volunteer effort in NYC history. It is a living memorial to the victims of September 11 and Covid-19, a platform for citywide parks stewardship and civic engagement, and a celebration of the New Yorkers championing parks equity in their communities. Established in 2001, the Daffodil Project is now in its 21st year.
