CBL Malls encourage shoppers to spread Random Acts of Kindness

Midland, MI (December 11, 2013) – ‘Tis the season when hearts warm at the thought of doing something for others. Midland Mall will be conducting random acts of kindness during the twelve days before Christmas. Mall management will surprise random shoppers by paying for their lunch, or giving them a gift from one of the mall retailers. In addition, Team Happiness volunteers from local organizations will be on hand Friday, December 13 through Sunday December 15 to assist customers with finding stores, opening doors, passing out coupons, help carry trays in the food court and more. Shoppers will be given a card asking that they pass on an act of kindness.

Midland Mall is also offering other opportunities to give love to those in need this holiday season.
