be part of the movement . . . november 3, 2017!

In our crazy, scheduled worlds, we don't always take the time to slow down and reflect on how fortunate we are to live in a community such as ours. Northwestern Alberta has a long-cherished reputation for community building and generosity.

Random Act of Kindness Day® is an opportunity to do something kind for someone else, to appreciate fellow citizens and for community building - it's NOT about fundraising or giving money - just a day to celebrate kindness.

Simple acts of kindness are endless; buy someone a coffee, congratulate someone on a job well done, offer to drive someone to an appointment, rake leaves for a neighbour or visit a seniors center. Share your acts of kindness with us through social media! Be sure to use #RAKDay & #KindnessNWAB. 

Kindness Inspires Kindness

Since 2008, this special day has brought Canadian communities together by engaging citizens in small acts of kindness and generosity. Random Act of Kindness Day® has become an amazing event that schools embrace to help communicate anti-bullying and encourage empathy through kindness amongst students. Random Act of Kindness Day has become a day that employers celebrate the hard work of their employees.

Even though kindness should be part of our everyday life, it's easy to get busy and sidetracked. Our hope is that Random Act of Kindness Day® reminds everyone to bring kindness to the top of their list - not just on November 3, but EVERY day.

How will you make kindness a priority on November 3, 2017?
