Water meter endpoint replacements scheduled

The founder of Spread Goodness Day is kicking off 2020 with new partnerships and new ways to spread goodness. Anna Dravland is the founder and driving force behind the initiative. Join in the third annual Spread Goodness Day on March 13, 2020.

This event is to inspire a global day of simple goodness by encouraging individuals, schools and organizations to spread some goodness.

What do you do for Spread Goodness Day? Spread some goodness. To whoever you want, however you want and to whatever extreme you want. Celebrate goodness in your unique, do-gooder ways!

It is not about paying it forward. It is not about service. It is not about telling us, the internet or anyone at all. It’s about Goodness in whatever way is natural to you.
