The Krewe of Kindness was formed in 2018 by the Zimlich family in Mobile, Alabama. Jenni and Michael Zimlich's daughter, Delaney, was born with Spina Bifida in 2006. At the time of this surprise diagnosis, thoughts of fear, isolation, and the unknown were ever present. They began to reach out to others in the community and found ways to adapt to this new life and wanted to find ways to give back and help others who needed a bit of kindness in their own lives. The mission of Krewe of Kindness is to provide assistance and support to families with special, non-medical needs to enable them to lead healthy and active lifestyles while emphasizing the importance of inclusion and acceptance within the community.
