Local NewsCelebrate Random Act of Kindness Day on February 17

The Brant Community Foundation is encouraging individuals, businesses, schools, service groups and organizations to do something kind for someone on Friday, February 17 for Random Act of Kindness Day.

A flag raising will take place at Harmony Square in Brantford on February 9th at 10:00 am. Mayor Kevin Davis will be in attendance as the Random Act of Kindness Day Proclamation is read.

“The Foundation is committed to building a better community and really, the best way you can have a better community is to have people connected. There is no better way to connect people than through kindness,” said Anne Marie Pierce, Executive Director of the Brant Community Foundation.

Robert Nagy, Chair of the Random Act of Kindness Day Committee added, “Our aim is to have the community come together and we encourage people throughout our community get out and do something kind.  We want our friends to think about kindness 365 days per year, and RAK day is just one day for people to start thinking about kindness.”

This day has been earmarked by the Brant Community Foundation as a day to recognize kindness and humanity in Brantford, Brant County, Six Nations of the Grand River and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

Random Act of Kindness Day was developed with two goals in mind:
⦁ to help reinforce the Brant Community Foundation’s vision of building a better community; and
⦁ to encourage the “pay it forward” philosophy throughout our community.

For information on how you can participate in Random Act of Kindness Day and for kindness resources, please contact the Foundation at (519) 756-2499 or visit the Foundation website: http://bit.ly/40tuLku.
