Boyds, MD (September 15, 2017) – The Washington Spirit will host a Night of Kindness during the team’s home game against the Boston Breakers at the Maryland SoccerPlex on September 23, celebrating the safe and supportive space that the NWSL community represents. Gates open at 6:00 p.m. ET and the game will kickoff at 7:00. [Tickets]
The evening will feature several kindness-themed components, including: ‘Kindness’ bracelets donated by lifestyle brand La Cle for the first 500 fans into the stadium; video testimonies from Spirit players about the power of kindness in their personal lives; a #WashSpiritNightOfKindness fan selfie station; a giveaway of 1,000 KIND® bars, and a Lap of Kindness after the game featuring the entire Washington Spirit team.
“The Night of Kindness is an opportunity for us to celebrate diversity using the power of the beautiful game of soccer,” said Spirit midfielder Joanna Lohman. “Regardless of our background, race, religion, gender, and lifestyle, we have far more in common with each other than not. We all want to feel a much deeper connection to people around us and with our community.”
Throughout the week leading up to the Night of Kindness, the Spirit will be unveiling videos of players expressing what kindness means to them and sharing stories of kindness from their own lives. Videos will be posted on the Washington Spirit YouTube channel along with other social media platforms.
Fans are encouraged to submit their own kindness videos on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #FindYourKind. Fan submissions will be randomly selected for giveaways throughout the week, with prizes including a team-signed poster, two team-signed scarves, and a pair of Field Side tickets to Saturday’s game against Boston.
