THUNDER BAY – On November 9, 2012 Thunder Bay will be celebrating Random Act of Kindness Day®. This day has been earmarked by Fort William Business District as a day to recognize kindness and humanity in Thunder Bay and surrounding areas.

The Fort William Business District is asking for your help in promoting this special day. Random Act of Kindness Day® cards will be circulating around our community. These cards encourage the cardholder to perform a simple act of kindness for someone – a neighbour, a friend, a co-worker, or someone they don’t even know – and hand the card over to that person – inspiring him/her to do the same.

There are so many ways you can get involved!

Pay it forward to your employees…

  • Treat everyone to coffee and donuts in the morning.
  • Allow your staff to leave a half hour early
  • Send an e-card to your employees letting them know how much you appreciate them.

Pay it forward to your co-workers…

  • Share your “to die for” chocolate chip cookies with your cubicle mates.
  • Offer to make the morning coffee run for everyone.
  • Make a point of thanking a co-worker for their help on a recent project.

Pay it forward to someone you don’t even know…

  • Purchase a meal for a homeless person.
  • Let someone in front of you on the expressway.
  • Pay the parking meter for someone if you see it’s getting low.

There are so many ways you can promote the day and have fun at the same time!

We hope that you will encourage your staff to spread the word and hand out cards to friends and family at every chance, inviting them to get involved in Random Act of Kindness Day®.

Random acts of kindness are a wonderful way to touch the lives of another and make our world a better place.  Please help us to put a human face on our community by promoting Random Act of Kindness Day® in your workplace!
