Be Canadian, be kind

Kindale is encouraging people to be kind, and not just at Christmas.

In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, Kindale Developmental Association is launching 150 Random Acts of Canadian Kindness.

The campaign invites people to demonstrate and celebrate the inherent Canadian value of kindness to others. Stories of Random Acts of Kindness will be shared through social media. Small prizes will be awarded through a random draw from among the stories that are submitted.

“It gives us great pleasure to celebrate kindness, inclusion and community which are at the fundamental core of Kindale where it is our goal to help make the hopes, wishes and dreams come true for people with diverse abilities. Kindale was founded in 1959 based on compassion, vision and knowing that all people have incredible strengths and abilities.” Benita Elliott, Kindale Executive Director

“Excitement is building with this incredible opportunity to commemorate and recognize the anniversary of Confederation by paying it forward with 150 Random Acts of Canadian Kindness throughout our communities of the North Okanagan and Columbia-Shuswap. All random acts whether big or small will be celebrated using traditional and social media and we are encouraging everyone to get involved in the year long party. ” Cindy Masters, Kindale Development Officer  

“Many marginalized people in small communities like Armstrong depend on the kindness of their neighbours because often services they require just aren’t available. Kindale’s project will highlight the needs in our community and engage everyone in doing their part to make life just a little bit easier for others. This Random Acts of Kindness project reminds us that we pride ourselves, as Canadians, in being a kind and caring people – so let’s show it.” Dave Wallace, Askew’s Foods

150 Random Acts of Canadian Kindness is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
