WindsorEssex Community Foundation Invites You to Participate in Random Act of Kindness Day 2020
The WECF invites you to celebrate Random Act of Kindness Day 2020 on Friday November 6th, 2020. Driven by a dedicated staff and committee of volunteers, this is the ninth annual Rak Day for Windsor-Essex!
The message for Random Act of Kindness Day 2020 is simple “Let’s make Kindness the norm.” November 6th, is a chance for our community to remind each other why we love our great city and show each other kindness and compassion!
The WECF encourages individuals, groups, businesses and organizations to help create a more empathetic and connected community by spreading kindness to others. You can do something 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. If you are still not sure how to show your kindness on November 6th, the WECF has a list of 101 Acts of Kindness on their website to get you started.
The WECF would like to share the good work you are doing on their social media channels so make sure to use #RakDayWindsorEssex and follow @WECFoundation on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram! They encourage all of you who want to participate to visit online.
Random Act of Kindness Day™ is an inclusive, community building initiative that was developed in 2008 by the Kitchener Waterloo Community Foundation. It is a nation-wide celebration of kindness promoting a ‘pay it forward’ movement in the community that takes place annually on the first Friday in November. RAK Day™ is meant to be a fun and simple way to encourage unexpected moments of kindness in our community. For the past nine years, the WECF has brought Rak Day™ to the Windsor-Essex Community, bringing the community together by engaging residents across Windsor-Essex in small acts of kindness and generosity, in partnership with the Random Act of Kindness Day Foundation.
The WindsorEssex Community Foundation, originally founded in 1983 as Heritage Windsor, is a perpetual community trust for philanthropic purposes. It exists to manage donors’ legacy funds and make grants to support local community programs. Through grant making activities, the WECF is able to establish partnerships to assist a broad range of community organizations.
