The world can always use a little more kindness, wouldn’t you agree? Starting Nov 9th, 2015 I will be sharing 30 stories of kindness in the 4th Annual 30 Days Of Kindness. Who performs these acts of kindness? Why you do! This series is about you and your kind act. I can’t do it without you in fact. Bad news, war, disease, and people being mean to each other is everywhere and gets all the media attention. What about the guy who buys the person behind him a coffee for no reason other than to be kind. Or the young boy who raises money at his school for inner city school kids so they can have a hot lunch each day. These are the stories and the sentiment that deserve to be celebrated and shared. There is no better time of year than the holiday season to shine a light on these every day hero’s and here’s your chance to step up and show how kind you are.
A very special shout out to my partners Provence Marinaside, The Wine Bar and Vancouver Theatre Sports League for supporting this years kindness series. They’ve been very kind to me over the year and I hope you are kind to them.
Here’s how it works:
- Commit to participate in 30 Days Of Kindness and put together a team. It could be yourself, your co-workers, or you and your group of friends.
- Pick a date from the list below and register here to lock the date in so it doesn’t get taken by another group. This is your kind act day.
- Brainstorm 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.
- Then you put thought into action and you do it! Here are examples from the last 3 years campaigns 30 Days Of Kindness.
If you live in Vancouver, great, I will be at your side. If you do not live in Vancouver but still want to participate you can. Follow the steps above and I’ll be in touch to work out the details about collecting pictures and the story. Kindness will not be limited by geography or age. If these kids from Killarney Secondary School can be kind so can you..
