In Brome-Missisquoi, we cultivate kindness
byBrome-Missisquoi | 7 April 2022

There is no denying that over the past two years COVID-19 has brought moments of stress, of solitude and the blues in us all. Knowing that our emotional and mental well being has been put to the challenge for over 24 months, a committee was formed to come up with ideas to bring a little light into the everyday life of our Brome-Missisquoi community.

The committee, comprised of the équipe-relais du RLS de la Pommeraie du CIUSSS de l’Estrie –CHUS along with the MRC Brome-Missisquoi, the office of MNA Isabelle Charest and the town of Cowansville decided to create a Kindness campaign where the population is encouraged to pay it forward. The goal is to inspire various actions of kindness whether it be towards oneself or others.

 

The video

Several generous people donated their time to prepare a video clip that shows the snow ball effects of random acts of kindness. We hope that this lighthearted clip will put a smile on your face and inspire you to bring a little light and happiness around you, and that a simple share on social media will inspire your entourage to pay it forward as well.

The kindness cards

Batches of kindness cards encouraging recipients to perform an act of kindness, towards others or oneself, will be in circulation throughout the region. These cards are meant to be shared with others in hopes of collectively cultivating a string of acts of kindness, love and generosity.

Once these cards have been passed around and show signs of wear, they can be planted! 5000 cards, 5000+ acts of kindness, 5000 wild flowers!

If you would like to print the cards at home, click HERE to download the template.

Acts of kindness

If you don’t get a card, you can still be part of the wave of kindness. Here are a few examples of actions that are meant to inspire you:

Self-love:

  • Take a walk outside

  • Ask yourself “how am I doing?”
  • Treat yourself
  • Meditate

Love for others….

  • Give a compliment to at least three people in your day
  • Invite someone for a coffee
