Good turns form the beginnings of a healthy society. Lending a helping hand or a gesture of good will goes a long way and will help to preserve a sense of community, friendliness, and good will.
A recent study released from York University of Toronto claimed that giving random acts of kindness can leave you feeling with a sense of fulfillment for up to six months! Doing a good turn is a double blessing in that not only does the person receiving the good deed feels good, but the person doing the good deed feels better about themselves for helping someone.
Good Turn Week happens once a year and provides an opportunity to highlight the good work scouting does for our communities. It also inspires others to make time for their own simple acts of kindness. Each Scout and Scouter will be receiving a Good Turn Week bracelet. When they have completed their "good turn" they pass the bracelet on to the person they helped and encourage them do so as well. They then register their good turn with the Good Turn Week website or via text.
