Agenda, BE: Are You Ready to Be More in Kansas City?


“Life was meant to do more and be more.”  This is the mindset behind what created Agenda, BE, a new nonprofit organization in Kansas City. 

Devised by Adam Benton after a life-threatening experience in Namibia, Africa, Agenda, BE serves to encourage communities to be more nonprofit-minded.  Here in the Kansas City area, Agenda, BE spotlights nonprofit organizations and help them to gain exposure. 

In addition to this, AgendaBE currently has two main projects, 52 Acts of Good and the BE More Fund of KC.  52 Acts of Good is a call-to-action-based mission that according, to Agenda, BE, “brings a little random kindness, a bit of sporadic joy, a little unexpected amazement and wonder to the lives of the people that need it the most.”  The movement asks the people of Kansas City to nominate those in need and those who are consistently caring for our community. 

The BE More Fund focuses around hand-carved bracelets from a tribe in Namibia.  These bracelets are stamped with “BE” and serve as a reminder to “be more” every time they are worn. These bracelets are currently sold at Standard Style in Leawood and the Country Club Plaza, in addition to Baldwin Denim in Leawood. 100% of the proceeds return to the BE More Fund. 

You can help Agenda, BE in the Kansas City area by purchasing these bracelets and raising awareness through photos and social media—it’s style with an impact.  Follow the BE More hashtag, #BEMOREKC and tweet a photo with your bracelet and tag #MORETHANABRACELET.
