The Official Site of the Dallas Stars

In honor of our 25th anniversary season, the Stars players want to give back to the community, their family, friends, and strangers alike by committing to 25 Acts of Kindness throughout the season. The acts can be large or small, with the main focus being that of trying to improve the day of someone around us. 

We encourage our fans to follow in the players' footsteps, and commit to 25 Acts of Kindness yourself.

How you can take part

Tweet a photo of your act of kindness with #Stars25 and you might be featured on the Stars Official Twitter account! We've listed some acts of kindness below. Use one as a suggestions or come up with your own! You can also sign up for information on volunteer and giving opportunities with the Dallas Stars Foundation.

Thank you for being a Stars fan, and for trying to make someone's day!
