Scott Hardy Honored For His Impact

Volunteer firefighter, EMT, roadside assistance HERO, and dog rescue owner Scott Hardy is dedicating his life to spreading kindness around Austin one good deed at a time.

RecognizeGood honored Scott Hardy with the 66th RecognizeGood® Legend award in a presentation at Cap City Comedy Club (8120 Research Blvd, Austin, TX, 78758) beginning at 1:00 pm on Friday, June 30th, 2017. During this event, RecognizeGood made a $1,000 pay-it-forward donation to Bastrop County First Responders in Scott’s name.

Scott Hardy is dedicating his life to spreading kindness around Austin – one good deed at a time. Scott gives back to the community in a variety of ways, serving as a volunteer firefighter and EMT, volunteering with Austin’s HERO rescue program, and also organizing a dog rescue with his wife, all in addition to his day job. Scott films all of his daily activities and posts vlogs to his YouTube page, Uncle Mullet Everyday Heroes. You can often find him driving around Austin on his motorcycle and handing out flowers to people on the street as a random act of kindness. Every flower has a wooden coin attached that says “See how far kindness can travel”. Scott’s hope – to spread the currency of kindness and encourage others to do good deeds throughout the community and the world.

As a 2017 Legend, Scott is now eligible to participate in RecognizeGood’s Say Thanks Austin campaign, an annual event which presents Central Texas with a unique opportunity to say “thank you” to a group of remarkable individuals who contribute their time and talents to our community. The participant with the most Thank You votes receives a pay-it-forward donation of $10,000 to the nonprofit of their choice.
