Nov 1st: Random Act of Kindness Day!

“Let’s spread kindness throughout Greater Victoria! Watch for Kindness Cards at retailers and other locations around the community!” ….. yes, it’s Random Act of Kindness Day.

This is a great opportunity for me to use virtue signalling, for extra social media marketing, and a predictable (nothing random here) act of kindness.

Edwards Technical Writing is based at the Dock co-working space. This is a vibrant and collaborative social impact hub, and a great place to do anything work related (acts of kindness included).

Once I have committed my act of kindness on Friday, I plan to take a photo, email it to the Victoria Foundation, and share it on social media using the hashtag #RAKdayYYJ . This will provide me with the chance to win one of two $500 prizes for a registered charity of my choice…. If I win a prize – I am choosing the Victoria Literacy Connection!! (VLC). VLC is a local non-profit, focused on literacy; and Alison Edwards is a member of their Fundraising and Communications Committee. They do great work to improve literacy in Victoria. Edwards Technical Writing is providing a large bucket of Halloween candy for co-workers at the Dock, accompanied by a donation jar. This collection will be donated to the VLC.
