Random Acts of Kindness Day

On Nov. 4, the community will be celebrating ‘Random Act of Kindness Day.’ This day has been earmarked by the Brockville and Area Community Foundation as a day to recognize kindness and humanity in the city of Brockville.

Random Act of Kindness Day cards will be circulating around the community including local businesses. The cards encourage the cardholder to perform a simple act of kindness for someone – a neighbour, a friend, a co-worker, or someone they don’t even know – and hand the card over to that person – inspiring him/her to do the same.

Pay it forward to your employees:

– Treat everyone to coffee and donuts in the morning,
– Allow your staff to leave a half hour early on Nov. 4,
– Send an e-card to your employees letting them know how much you appreciate them.

Pay it forward to your co-workers:

– Share your “to die for” chocolate chip cookies with your cubicle mates,
– Offer to make the morning coffee run for everyone,
– Make a point of thanking a co-worker for their help on a recent project.

Pay it forward to someone you don’t even know:

– Purchase a meal for a homeless person,
– Let someone in front of you on the highway,
– Pay the parking meter for someone if you see it’s getting low.

There are so many ways you can promote the day and have fun at the same time!

Posters and cards are available by contacting Charles Massey at [email protected], or by calling the Brockville and Area Community Foundation at 613-498-9970.

Random acts of kindness are a wonderful way to touch the lives of others and make our world a better place. Please help us to put a human face on our community by promoting Random Act of Kindness Day!
