  RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS DAY

Community Foundation Grey Bruce in conjunction with the Kincardine Community Fund, will be joining other communities across Ontario, acting as kindness hubs, encouraging caring and sharing amongst one another next Friday (November 3rd).

The pay it forward concept will feature cards that encourage the cardholder to perform a simple act of kindness for someone - a neighbour, friend, co-worker, or someone they don't even know - and hand the card over to that person, encouraging him or her to do the same.

The Kincardine Community Fund Committee will be recognizing Random Acts of Kindness Day through their social media presence, through partnerships with the retailers in the BIA and the students at Kincardine and District Secondary school.

Random Act of Kindness cards will be available for pick up at the Visitor Information Centre, the Municipal Administration Office, and at participating downtown locations.

For more information about the day visit 'Random Act of Kindness GB' on Facebook or #RAKGB or @RAKGreyBruce on Twitter.
