May 13, 2020, is #ConsciousKindness Day!

Be (extra!) kind to your friends, family, co-workers (and even perfect strangers!) and share it with #ConsciousKindness

Kindness. It makes our community better for everyone. Never underestimate the power of even the smallest act of kindness. It has the potential to change a life. And when multiplied by millions of people, small gestures of local love can transform the world.

Be part of United Way Winnipeg’s Conscious Kindness Day by planning some treats for your staff, customers, or constituents! It’s an easy way to get your workplace or organization working together for a better community.

Together, we can make the world more compassionate, considerate and connected with each act of kindness.

If you’ve been kind or experienced kindness, tell the world and inspire others by sharing stories and ideas on social media with the hashtag #ConsciousKindness

Let’s celebrate a day that inspires people everywhere to be kind every day.
