Acts of kindness and caring are happening throughout our city. They’re lead by organizations, small business owners, individuals and families - Red Deerians who understand we need to support each other through this difficult time. Today, The City launched RedDeerCares.ca, a new online kindness hub that will serve to collect and share these stories, and encourage more of these acts in our community.
“Red Deer cares. This statement has rung true time and again over the last year,” said Tara Shand, Corporate Communications Manager. “Stories of kindness and support have warmed hearts and inspired others to pay it forward, but a cohesive collection of these great stories was lacking. We’re pleased to now have a place where these stories can be collected and shared with anyone who needs a positivity boost.”
An extension of We Are Red Deer, the site features positive community stories, kindness inspiration, events, and local business directories.
“Businesses need our support right now too, and one way to show kindness is to make a choice to support a local business. The Red Deer Cares site features online directories to make it easier for Red Deerians to find information about local options to make that choice easier,” said Shand.
Residents are encouraged to help build a kindness collection by submitting stories about random (or planned) acts of kindness they’ve heard of, witnessed, or participated in.
