Kindness is Golden

Giving Tuesday is the first Tuesday after Black Friday and it encourages people to make donations to their favourite charity, or find other ways to help make the world a little better. Everyone loves to have someone help them out. It could be helping a neighbour, mowing a lawn, shoveling a driveway or any other helpful action! What can you do to help someone else?
