Celebrate Kindness in Ottawa from February 12-19, 2021!

Every year in February, we launch Kindness Week in Ottawa. Throughout the week, we recognize citizens who have participated in exceptional acts of kindness and and share your kind stories within the community!

We need kindness now more than ever, but this year's Kindness Week will look a little different...

Due to the risks associated with gathering in person, we will not be distributing Kindness Awards to nominees this year. HOWEVER, we will still be celebrating acts of kindness throughout the city of Ottawa, because during these truly tough times, being kind to one another is of the upmost importance.

From February 12-19, we will be taking Kindness Week online. We are requesting that citizens contribute their stories of kindness for us to share, whether they were the giver or the receiver, so that we may inspire others to follow examples of kindness. We will share kindness messages from prominent leaders and figures in our community. Each day, we will share kindness events or activities taking place in Ottawa, encouraging everyone to get involved and we will even be holding a Kindness Week Virtual Art Show (see details below).

All stories will be reviewed by our team and those selected will be shared on our social media channels and on our "Share Your Stories" page on our website.
