What is Random Act of Kindness Day?

An annual event led by the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta to recognize and celebrate kindness in our communities.

$500 to Your Favourite Charity

We asked people to share their kind acts with us via Facebook, Twitter, or email. We received an amazing response from across southwestern Alberta. Everyone who shared with us had their name entered into a draw for the chance to award their favourite registered charity with a $500 grant.

Congratulations to our winners and their chosen charities! Thank you for spreading kindness in our community.
