The concept made its way to Fort St. John four years ago, stressing that everyone should do something nice for three people, then those three people would do the same for three others.
There are many ways for an individual to “Pay it Forward”, including prepping food or cooking a meal for busy parents, giving someone random a small gift, mowing a neighbours lawn, or washing someone’s car, just to name a few.
Cory Goodwin with the Fort St. John Association for Community Living, says she believes these acts are important in a community like ours.
“Kindness is the best and it’s a great concept that has made its way to Fort St. John. This year we really wanted to make it bigger and encourage everyone in the city to get on board and pass along some random acts of kindness.”
Goodwin says another great way to embrace the day is for employers to do something nice for their workers.
This year, the FSJ Association for Community living has joined forces with United Way, the Women’s Resource Society, and NEAT, along with some other local organizations, who are encouraging other businesses to join in and spread the good vibes on June 8.
The FSJACL will be passing along random acts of kindness throughout the day, surprising people with baked goods and flowers, doing house work for the elderly and distributing soup all across town, among other nice gestures.
The organization is encouraging everyone to participate, to make June 8 a positive day for everyone.
