**Watch for information on 2014 Cool to be Kind Week (Oct 6-10)
2013 Cool to be Kind Week (October 7th - 13th)
Kindness is contagious. Interior Community Services invites all of Kamloops to embrace the idea of it’s “Cool to be Kind”. The City of Kamloops has proclaimed October 7th - 13th as Kamloops Cool to be Kind Week. During this week, the wonderful people of Kamloops are encouraged to perform random acts of kindness; for kindness sake! It’s less about the specific act and rather about the intentional purpose of being kind. There are endless random acts that can be performed and they can be intended for a family member or friend, a co-worker or employee, a child, senior or a complete stranger. Schools and daycares, agencies and organizations along with larger corporations are encouraged to use this week as an opportunity to recognize kindness and pay it forward.
Interior Community Services will be asking the citizens of Kamloops to join us in exploring new and exciting ways to practice random acts of kindness. Stories will be reminisced, suggestions will be offered and the many benefits of participating in Cool to be Kind Week will be shared. On Thursday October 10, 2013 staff at Interior Community Services, with the generosity of supporting local businesses, will be hosting a free luncheon and warm clothing donation. If you are an individual or business who would like to contribute to this event or have warm outer wear to donate, please contact Amy-Jean Fournier at Interior Community Services 250-554-3134. “No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.”
