Cultivate Kindness brings Easter surprises to Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – This evening you may see some bunnies hiding eggs in your neighbors’ yards.

The nonprofit organization Cultivate Kindness is hosting their egg drop event for families in the Bowling Green community.

In 2017, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, McKenzie Loid was in a fatal car accident. When she died, her phone’s lock screen had the words “cultivate kindess.” The family decided to name the nonprofit in remembrance of McKenzie.

“We have families in Warren County sign up on our website, which usually goes pretty quick, probably thirty to forty minutes sign ups are full,” said Dallas Wilkins and Robin Loid, co-founders of Cultivate Kindness. “We’ve got two hundred yards this year and about twenty-three bunny teams and they each go out, they have all their eggs that are already filled and hide them among yards across Warren County.”

As an organ donor, McKenzie gave her heart, liver and kidney to people within the state because her mother wanted to keep McKenzie’s heart in the state of Kentucky. She wishes to meet the heart recipient and be able to listen to her daughter’s heart beat again.
