Snowbird takes kindness club to Midwest

Acknowledging Acts of Kindness has spread its mission to Dayton, Ohio, where a new AAOK club has formed. Founders Joe Santoro, of the Village of Bridgeport at Lake Miona, and Lindsay Collier, of the Village of Tall Trees, hold a copy of a Dayton newspaper article featuring AAOK and its Dayton founder.

We’ve all heard of videos going viral on the internet.

But what about clubs in The Villages?

While renting a home in the Village of Mallory Square in March, Anne Sheehan discovered the Acknowledging Acts of Kindness Club.

Founded by Joe Santoro and Lindsay Collier in February, the club’s purpose is to recognize people who have performed an act of kindness. When a member witnesses someone doing something nice, they thank them and give them an AAOK card.

On her way back to Dayton, Ohio, Sheehan couldn’t stop thinking about it.
