Acts of Gentle Kindness


For more than 140 years, Ivory continues to provide a touch of gentle kindness from one generation to the next. Ivory is highlighting the acts of kindness that you show to your loved ones and communities at a time when kindness can go a long way.

Ivory is partnering with seven-year-old Cavanagh Bell and his non-profit Cool & Dope to spread kindness to the elderly this holiday season.

Cavanagh started Cool & Dope to end bullying by 2030 after enduring personal bullying encounters at school. To ease isolation and loneliness due to COVID-19, Cavanagh changed Cool & Dope's mission to provide local seniors with hot meals and care packages.

Ivory is proud to work with Cavanagh and provide financial assistance to Cool & Dope to distribute Ivory Care Packs to the elderly who deserve a touch of love and kindness. Families may forgo treasured traditions and special gatherings, which makes this work with Cavanaugh and Cool & Dope critical.

Ivory encourages you to give a touch of love and kindness to a family member, friend, or neighbor experiencing social isolation – to spread love and appreciation during these difficult times.
