From Victoria to Ottawa let’s spread some random kindness.

Canadians have a reputation for being “nice” but we still have our cranky moments. In fact I had one the other day when someone tried to jump ahead of me in a line-up. It’s for those moments when I want scream at people that 30 Days OF Kindness was born. Line jumping for a coffee is a complete “first world” problem. Getting my morning cup of java 30 seconds later does not in any way alter my day, trust me I’ve tested it. The holiday season is the perfect time of year to reflect on how lucky we are and Nov 13th is World Kindness Day so there is no better time of year to extra kind than coming up.

Last year I launched the first ever 30 Days Of Kindness campaign and over 30 companies and individuals signed up to spread kindness throughout Vancouver. This year I’m super sizing kindness. With the help of a “kind” sponsor, soon to be named, I hope to re visit all the fabulous places I’ve been to in the past year to inspire and document more awesome random acts of kindness. We are taking kindness National, but only with your help!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Commit to participate in 30 Days Of Kindness. It could be just yourself, your co-workers, or your group of friends.
  2. Pick a date and register here to lock the date in so it doesn’t get taken by another group.
  3. Let’s brainstorm about an act of kindness that is easy for you to accomplish and makes sense given your schedule and ability. If you need to look for some ideas here is a great resource from the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.
  4. Then we put thought into action and we do it together! Here are examples from last years campaign 2012 30 Days Of Kindness.

So if you live in Abbotsford, Harrison, Langley, the Okanagan, Ottawa, Salt Spring Island, the Sunshine Coast, or Victoria sign up and let’s be kind together! Remember kindness doesn’t have to cost you money.

  1. Someone just told me about your blog and also “Cooking With Mr. C. on Facebook. I just “Liked” his page and came to your site. I love when people share blogs with each other. Denise

  2. I just read an ad on our Salt Spring Exchange a few minutes ago about this event and came here to read more info. Why does it say “sold out” for Salt Spring Island’s Day of Kindness, on Nov 25? Isn’t being kind something unlimited individuals can do? How can the day be sold out of kindness when it hasn’t even arrived yet? No worries though…I do kind things for people and animals at any opportunity that presents itself, at any time without needing to sign up for it. <3

    • Hi Lori I applaud and encourage you to commit kindness any day you can. For this campaign I follow the person who signs up for days act and document it then share it.

      You can see examples on the home page listed.

      Perhaps I’ll see you on Monday when I’m there.
