This last year blew by at a pace that still amazes us. I remember sitting with the team one Sunday afternoon last year and thinking about our goals for the year ahead – all of which we achieved!
They included the launch of our giving platform, more engagement with our community and undertaking projects that would help amplify our core message: that YOU can build stronger, sustainable and kinder communities simply by aligning your values with like-minded people and organizations you are engaging with, wherever you are.
It might sound simple, but in truth, as many of you know, the reality of trying to align your values is much more challenging than it may first appear. And the challenges start right at the outset when trying to find these wonderful values aligned people and groups. As you know, we are obsessed with how to make that task easier for you. We think we have done that through the launch of our new giving platform, but now we need YOU to test it out and tell us how we did.
We are grateful to have met so many of you this year and to have the ongoing support from our first friends, including Momentum Business Law, Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa, Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, Parkdale Food Centre, Otus Group, Black Squirrel Books, Giant, The Teresa Group and so many more wonderful businesses, charities, non-profits and professionals you can find now on the new Kind Village giving platform.
So, where to next?
Our #1 goal for 2018 is to build our community of members exponentially. The more wonderful and kind people and organizations we can connect, the bigger the positive impact we can collectively create in local communities around the world!
We look forward to seeing you on the Kind Village giving platform. Please feel free to recruit your friends, charities, businesses and others who care about their causes and communities as much as you do! Signing up takes less than a minute and the impact you can generate for your causes and communities is exponentially greater than the small investment of time to get started.
With kindest wishes from our team to you,
Chief Impact Officer, Kind Village
