Quest for Kindness
THE ALZHEIMER SOCIETY IS LIGHTING UP ONTARIO WITH KINDNESS IN NEW FUNDRAISING EVENT: QUEST FOR KINDNESS
In celebration of World Kindness Day on November 13, the Alzheimer Society is excited to announce their kindest event yet—the Quest for Kindness. Starting January 1st, get ready to fundraise and fight the stigma surrounding Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by lighting up Ontario with kindness and making our communities a kinder place to live.
The Quest for Kindness is a month-long event (January 1 to 29) that challenges participants to make at least 30 kind-nections by completing a series of acts of kindness like baking cookies for someone, shoveling a neighbour’s driveway, or even something as simple as paying someone a compliment.
Designed for family, friends, and colleagues to spread kindness, create awareness, and raise funds for crucial Alzheimer Society education, counselling services, and wellness activities, the Quest for Kindness highlights the importance of being kind to the community, to people living with dementia, and even to yourself. Throughout the event, participants can watch their community light up with kindness using the online Kind-nections Map—a map of Ontario that will display all the acts of kindness that are being completed and the kind-nections that are being made in real-time.
Participants can look forward to using the interactive website where they can check off all the kind-nections they make, as well as using #QuestForKindness to share their fundraising progress and promote the campaign.
