Kindness is the key

Kindness makes our community better for everyone, and on May 10 Manitobans helped spread kindness during United Way’s third annual day of Conscious Kindness.

 

Schools, workplaces, and Manitobans everywhere showed their spirit and inspiration to care about each other and themselves.

The day coincided with a proclamation by the Province of Manitoba declaring May 7-13 as Kindness Week, and with help from some friends and partners United Way served up goodies during a Kindness Drive-Thru at 580 Main Street during the morning hours.

Friends from United Way Brandon and United Way Portage PlainsΒ spread kindness through their communities, making it the first truly province-wide Conscious Kindness Day.

Psychologists from Kindness partner Winnlove.ca were on hand to spread the message that “when we are kind to each other, our relationships improve, even with strangers,” – helping us build community and social supports.
