Random Acts of Kindness - November 12th, 2010

The Guelph Community Foundation is holding the city’s first Random Acts of Kindness Day on Friday November 12, 2010. The day encourages each of us to do something kind for another person and is an opportunity to appreciate our fellow citizens and build our community.

Random Acts of Kindness Day is NOT about fundraising or giving money – just a day to celebrate simple acts of kindness like buying someone a coffee, congratulating someone on a job well done, driving someone to an appointment, holding a door open, carrying someone’s groceries, etc…

25,000 Random Act of Kindness Day cards are available in Guelph and Wellington County. The cards encourage the holder to perform a simple act of kindness for someone and then hand over the card so that person can “pay it forward”.

Get involved! Place posters and cards in high traffic spots at work and around our community – give them to friends, family, co-workers or people you’ve just met.

Started in 2008 by The Kitchener-Waterloo Community Foundation, this year Guelph joins Cambridge & North Dumfries, London, Brantford and Orillia.
