Monterey, CA, July 07, 2020 — Kindness Monterey, a campaign initiated to help individuals in need and restaurants that have been challenged as the result of the coronavirus emergency, will soon be launching its website to keep the campaign going.

The campaign was created by local businesswomen Annee Martin and Maren Elwood, and the website, www.kindnessmonterey.com launches Thursday, July 8, 2020, was built by Carmel’s Tracy Hopper of Hopperopolis, a Monterey Peninsula-based marketing communications company (http://hopperopolis.com/)

The pay-it-forward gift card campaign to help Monterey Peninsula restaurants encourages generosity from the community by purchasing these gift cards to give to family, friends, neighbors, musicians, service providers, small business owners, field workers, frontline medical personnel and first responders. Martin believes that not only are you helping restaurants stay alive and letting them know they are loved and supported by their community, but by paying it forward, you are lifting the spirits and hopes of our entire community.

Restaurants will be able to sign up on the website or can sign up now by calling 831-235-7662 or by email at info@kindnessmonterey.com.

In addition to the website, Martin connected with Kiki Whitman of Kiki Wow Events (https://www.kikiwow.net/), who joined forces with Kindness Monterey to create an online music concert “Monterey Care-A-Thon,” to share the healing power of music by local musicians in an effort to raise donations for local restaurants, support local musicians and feed those in need with the common goal to benefit the community.

Whitman, upon hearing of Kindness Monterey’s vision, saw this as a way to support the community that she has been such an integral part of and will be reaching out to restaurants and sponsors to help get them on board for the campaign. Whitman is a musician herself as well as a producer of music events in the area.

They will create at least two online music events this summer/fall to help raise money to fund the campaign, purchase gift cards for those in need, as well as support struggling musicians who have found themselves unable to perform in public. The dates for these concerts are Sunday, Aug. 2 and Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020.

There is also a related campaign in place to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County (BGCMC): For every $1,000 raised, $50 will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs to provide weekend grab-and-go meals for 6 children. Martin and Elwood are hoping to find business supporters to help sponsor this campaign. Martin, who founded Sanctuary Vacation Rentals, also plans to purchase gift cards and place one in each of her rental homes for visitors and she is hoping to encourage others to do the same.

The campaign for Kindness Monterey began the way many worthy projects begin, with two good friends sharing an idea for a worthwhile cause. Friends Martin and Elwood were talking about how they missed going out to their favorite restaurants and how they could support them during the pandemic-induced closings and reduced operations. Martin and Elwood believe strongly that our small cafes, restaurants, bakeries, coffeehouses, wineries and food trucks are the anchor and fabric of our community and provide so much more than just food and drink. These are the places where we meet to celebrate, share our human connections and live life to its fullest.
