Now I realize you may be asking yourself: “Uh, shouldn’t we be kind every day? Do we really need a contest for that?”
You’re right - we SHOULD be kind every day (whenever, wherever and to whomever possible). But like a lot of ‘shoulds’ and despite our best intentions (like exercising at least 30 minutes a day), it doesn’t always happen.
Kindness is a habit. And like any habit, practice makes perfect.
So, to help build your "kindness muscle" this holiday season, you are invited to join your colleagues in spending 15 days doing at least one consciously kind thing each day. We hope the act of Shining Your Light through kindness will make you feel not only kinder, but also happier and healthier - not to mention that it may just make the people around you a little more kind too! :)
Not only will you make the world a brighter place by being kind, you could also win a prize! Each person who completes the contest will be entered into a prize draw to win one of four $20 Give ‘OntheGo’ Cards (redeemable at all HHSVA Give Shops).
If you want to Shine Your Light at work, at home, and in the community, then register below to get started. Together, we can make HHS the kindest place to be in Hamilton!
