Be part of the growing movement to celebrate kindness in Ottawa! 

The city-wide Kind Ottawa initiative together with its flagship event, Kindness Week, celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2017.  Kind Ottawa has become a vibrant movement in our community, encouraging people to “choose to be kind”.  Kindness Week 2017 will take place February 17-26. Normally the week would end on the 24th, but we decided to mark the 10th anniversary by adding two more days to make a full 10 days of kindness!

Kind Ottawa and Kindness Week are now run by the Caring and Sharing Exchange with extensive representation from our community.  Under the leadership of Kindness Week Chair Rabbi Reuven Bulka (spiritual leader of Congregation Machzikei Hadas, host of CFRA’s Sunday Night with Rabbi Bulka, columnist with The Ottawa Citizen), community leaders and volunteers from across Ottawa employ their resources, experience and enthusiasm to bring Kindness Week to life in Ottawa.

We have the ability to create the community we want.  Make a conscious choice to contribute and focus on A Kind Ottawa throughout the entire year!

      Being a volunteer for 16 years in Ottawa areas has given my life purpose and a reason to give what my heart is telling me to do and say in the right way.Even when days aren’t
      all filled up–I know someone is in need of a friend and a willing person in the community.
