Random Act of Kindness Day Windsor-Essex 2019
November 1 @ 12:00 am - 11:55 pm
The Windsor Essex Community Foundation (WECF) in partnership with the Kitchener-Waterloo Community Foundation and Community Foundations of Canada are pleased to bring Random Act of Kindness Day (RAK Day) back to Windsor-Essex on Friday, November 1, 2019.
This year’s theme is “Let’s Make Kindness The Norm!”
Each year many individuals, groups, businesses and organizations participate in the day by engaging in various acts of kindness throughout the city and county. The WECF is collaborating with these groups (as well as with the local high schools that will be participating in RAK Day activities) to help share theirs stories via social media.
Everyone is encouraged to share their kindness stories with the WECF via social media by tagging @WECFoundation or using the hashtags #WERAK or #RAKDAY
On this day individuals, groups, businesses and organizations are encouraged to help create a more empathetic and connected community by spreading kindness to others. You can do some-thing as simple as holding a door open for someone or as elaborate as preparing, delivering and serving meals to the under-privileged, with no expectation of receiving anything in return other than bringing a smile to someone’s face and the hope that the recipient of your kindness will then do something nice for someone else.
What will you do?
Remember to share your kindness stories with the WECF via social media by tagging @WECFoundation or using the hashtags #WERAK or #RAKDAY
