Be Kind

November 13th is World Kindness Day. While the world can use a little more kindness every day, it’s a great reminder to slow down, be thoughtful, and connect with family and friends—or make new ones!

When was the last time you got a hand-written note? Skip the text message or email and take a moment to pen a few words to a loved one. It’s a small gesture with a big impact. Not sure what to write? Share your favourite quote, well wishes, or just a few thoughts and then pop your note in the mail—bonus points for cute stationary from Coles.

It’s often said that food is love. And who doesn’t love sharing their favourite meal or treat with some of their favourite people? Celebrate World Kindness Day by treating your important people to cup of coffee, delicious dinner, or a sweet snack. Grab a table at Original Joes, bring home a pie from Panago, or snag a box of Tim Horton’s Timbits to take into the office. Who said being kind can’t also be delicious?

Planning to visit us at Westshore Town Centre for World Kindness Day? Don’t forget the small acts of kindness that everyone can appreciate—hold the door, let someone in front of you in line, tell someone if you’re impressed with your service, and always return your shopping cart or basket. And remember, in a world where you can be anything, be kind.
