Friday, November 4, 2016 – Region of Durham

A national initiative led by Community Foundations across Canada, and championed locally by Durham Community Foundation, Random Act of Kindness Day® is an opportunity to do something kind for someone else, to appreciate fellow citizens and for community building – it’s NOT about fundraising or giving money – just a day to celebrate kindness. Simple acts of kindness are endless; buy someone a coffee, congratulate someone on a job well done, or spend time with your neighbour.
