People are encouraged to nominate someone who inspires them for the Matt Kurtz Kindness Award.

Nominations are due April 15 and the winner will be announced May 1.

Kurtz (1985-2017) lived in Boulder, and his personal philosophy was to live an honorable, compassionate and nonjudgmental life, accoriding to a press release. Kurtz also believed in the ripple effect of kindness; like a pebble dropped in water, it goes on and on.

The award aims to recognize people for the good they do through small acts of kindness every day – the people who show up and do whatever needs to be done, giving generously with no expectation of reward or recognition and people who do small good deeds, and sometimes huge good deeds, just because they can.

Matt’s Kindness Ripples On believes these unsung heroes are the people we should admire and emulate, the release stated.

The winner will receive a gift certificate and $250 in acknowledgment of their outstanding kindness and compassion.
