Random Act of Kindness Day
November 2, 2015
National Random Act of Kindness day is on November 6, 2015. It is designed to promote shared moments of genuine kindness and ‘pay it forward.’
“Our community, and in fact, the world, would be a better place if there was more kindness and compassion in it. Even the best of us get so busy with our daily lives and duties that we can forget to show that kindness to others as much as we should.” –Saskatoon Community Foundation
This year, the Airline Hotels community leaders are holding a contest during the entire first week of November. From November 1st – 7th, all associates at Airline Hotels are encouraged to do Random Acts of Kindness throughout the week for someone or their community. They will share their kind acts on the Airline Hotels intranet (The Family Room) or nominate another associate for a chance to win one of two $50 VISA gift cards.
Airline Hotels encourages all Canadians to take some time to think about the people you meet each day and what might help make their day a bit brighter. Show kindness and compassion to others!
