Random Act of Kindness Day 2019

How will you pay it forward?

The Victoria Foundation is inviting everyone to help inspire smiles with Random Act of Kindness Day® on Friday, November 1, 2019.

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.

Let your kindness flag fly

Random Act of Kindness Day can be celebrated by businesses, organizations, governments, families, individuals…everyone! We encourage all to do something nice for someone on Friday, Nov. 1.

We’d love to hear your stories of how you spread acts of kindness throughout the day! Be sure to take a photo of your kind act and email it to kwells@victoriafoundation.bc.ca or share it on social media on November 1st for a chance to win one of two $500 prizes for a registered charity of your choice! Tag the Victoria Foundation (@VicFoundation on Twitter, @victoriafoundation on Instagram) and use the hashtag #RAKdayYYJ.
