Random Acts of Kindness

Today is the Kitchener-Waterloo Community Foundation's Random Acts of Kindness day.  The goal of the program is to pass on simple acts of kindness to people in the community, have them continue to trend to other people, and eventually, everyone in the community has experienced little acts of kindness. 

I encourage everyone, regardless if you are in Waterloo Region or not, to use this day, Friday the 13th, to participate in this day.  Ideally, we will create a culture that appreciates giving random acts of kindness, and we won't need a day to promote the idea.  Check out The Record for some Random Act of Kindness Day cards to pass along or the KW Community Foundation website for more information.

Simple acts to strangers often have the most impact.  For some really cool ideas of how to participate, please take a look at the following websites:

Random acts of kindness are a wonderful way to touch the lives of others and make our world a better place.

Thanks for reading.
