How will you pay it forward?

The first Friday of November each year is Random Act of Kindness Day. Since 2008, this special day has brought Canadian communities together by engaging citizens in small acts of kindness and generosity.

The message is simple: do something nice for someone and ask nothing in return, except that they do something nice for someone else. It doesn’t have to cost a cent. Holding open a door, sharing words of encouragement, saying hello to a neighbour – these are all the kinds of acts that citizens “pay forward” on this special day.

The Victoria Foundation has been leading this special day since 2015, including encouraging businesses and non-profits to take part, engaging school children in colouring ‘Smiley Face Cards’ for distribution to senior’s centres, and more.

Bookmark this page and check back closer to next October for details on how to get involved next year, including information packs, posters, cards and more.
