A Decade of Kindness: Our Journey with 26 Hours of Kindness

January 24, 2024, 8:49 am

Ten years ago, we embarked on a heartwarming journey with the initiation of our 26 Hours of Kindness initiative. Over a span of 26 consecutive hours, the NKPR team passionately engages in various acts of goodwill across the city. From volunteering at local shelters to collecting clothing and toys for donations, raising funds for the homeless community, to distributing tea to morning commuters – our mission is simple: spread love and kindness during the coldest time of year in Toronto.

What started as a moment to spread random acts of kindness has now blossomed into an annual tradition. Each year, our NKPR team, friends, and client partners eagerly look forward to participating in this impactful event, a chance to give back to the community and make a real difference.

Now, on Valentine’s Day, we’ve transformed our 26 Hours of Kindness initiative into a celebration of love that goes beyond romantic gestures. It’s an opportunity to show compassion for others and spend time together in a truly meaningful way.

Join the #HashtagLunchbag Movement

This year, we are excited to bring back the #HashtagLunchbag movement, aiming to empower and inspire the community during one of the coldest times of the year in Toronto. Throughout the day, we’ll be assembling bagged lunches, complete with handwritten notes of kindness. These lunches will be distributed to food banks and homeless shelters across the city, reminding recipients that they are loved and cared for by the community. Get a glimpse of our last event here!

Be Part of Something Special on February 14th

On February 14th, from 9 AM to 1 PM, we invite friends, family, community members, and neighbours of NKPR to join us at ‘KINDNESS HQ,’ located in our new office at 686 Richmond Street West. Come together to assemble lunches and write notes of kindness. The NKPR team will then spend the rest of the day delivering these lunches across Toronto.
