The Nextdoor 100 celebrates super amazing, supportive, surprising, creative, compassionate, never-not-there-when-you-need-them neighbors across America
SAN FRANCISCO, CA April 7, 2022 — Nextdoor (NYSE: KIND) announced today that it is partnering with GRAMMYⓇ award-winning recording artist and actor Tim McGraw to celebrate some of the most humble and kind among us: amazing neighbors.
Through the partnership, McGraw helps launch the first-ever Nextdoor 100, a celebration of the super amazing, supportive, surprising, creative, compassionate, never-not-there-when-you-need them neighbors who make our communities better every day with small but meaningful acts of kindness. The Nextdoor 100 will join McGraw’s highly anticipated The McGraw Tour 2022, his first solo tour in six years, to share some of the inspiring Nextdoor 100 stories at concert venues and on social media. McGraw will also be one of a number of select judges for the awards program which has already received tens of thousands of nominations from people all across the country.
“I think kindness lives in the little things. Having someone lend a helping hand when you need it, offering words of support or a cup of sugar when you come up short, can make all the difference,” said McGraw. “I’m excited to be partnering with the Nextdoor 100, to help celebrate neighbors across America and shine a light on real people having a real impact in our communities.”
The McGraw Tour 2022 kicks off on April 29 and will carry on through 17 cities throughout the US. At each stop, fans will be invited to a mini-neighborhood, where they can connect, meet, and mingle with neighbors in celebration of the Nextdoor 100, with experiences featuring fun festivities that honor the local community. The activations around the tour will be produced by social entertainment studio Shareability.
“On Nextdoor we can see that simple but meaningful acts of kindness are on the rise: from the neighbor that shovels snow for the whole block, to the local deli owner that always adds a little extra to your order,” said Maryam Banikarim, Head of Marketing at Nextdoor. “It’s time to put our neighbors and their stories in the spotlight. We’re excited to work with Tim McGraw, whose own kindness and humility make him the perfect partner to celebrate the positive impact of neighbors in our lives.”
Unlike typical award shows, the Nextdoor 100 is all about neighbors celebrating neighbors through nominations submitted on thenextdoor100.com. It gives much deserved recognition to the people who we’ve turned to in the last few years as we’ve faced extraordinary challenges together. Nominations for the Nextdoor 100 are open now through May 8th, 2022 and the official Nextdoor 100 honorees will be announced on May 23rd, 2022. A panel of judges, including McGraw, will select the winners.
