Recognizing acts of kindness
Published on 25/03/2021
The Children’s Breakfast Clubs, a Maytree grantee, has always focused on ensuring that its children are kind and caring towards each other, their teachers, their parents, and members of the community. To reinforce this, six years ago, it initiated an “act of kindness” campaign during the month of April to stress how important it is that we take care of each other.
The pandemic has placed more stress on all of us, and it has reminded us of how important it is to be kind, caring and helpful to others. These acts of kindness not only benefit the people we help – they also make us feel better about ourselves.
Staff at the Children’s Breakfast Clubs would like to use their social media channels to highlight random acts of kindness people are performing in these difficult times – grocery shopping for elderly neighbours, having a Zoom reading hour with children, taking time to have regular “porch visits” with people who are confined to their homes, walking dogs, or any other acts that come to mind.
If you know of someone who is performing an act of kindness, please let staff at the Children’s Breakfast Clubs know. With the person’s permission, they would like to recognize the individual and post their act of kindness on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram – with their photograph if possible. They will post those acts throughout the month of April.
To submit an act of kindness, you can reach out to Zubeda Nanji at firstname.lastname@example.org.
