Right to Life Kent is going to share the love in Chatham-Kent with a pay-it-forward event, the Kindness Challenge.
On Sept. 23, groups of friends and families will join together to go out onto the streets of Chatham and perform as many random acts of kindness as they can in a two-hour time frame.
Reaching out to the community in simple ways such as writing cards to those in the hospital, or giving flowers to strangers are as uplifting to the receiver as much as the giver.
“If we can encourage our Chatham-Kent neighbours to pay-it-forward, we can make this great community even better,” the organizers said in a release.
At the end of the event, there will be a free hotdog lunch for the participants and volunteers, as well as door prizes donated by local businesses.
This is an interactive fundraising event for Right to Life Kent. Groups or individuals will gather pledges from the community to sponsor and support their challenge. All money collected will go towards Right to Life Kent’s general and education funds. A minimum of $20 is required to participate.
