Welcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.
This week’s challenge encourages you to:
Help a neighbour in need. A couple of days ago I thought I would have to reconsider today’s challenge but Mother Nature has come through, making it more relevant than I could have imagined. The City of Kingston is once again running the Snow Angel program. Snow Angels are the kind folks who take it upon themselves to help their neighbours clear snow and ice from their cars and sidewalks. Snow Angels do their deed unprompted and their kind act can go a long way to making someone else’s life a bit easier. This week we challenge you to be a Snow Angel and lend a hand to a neighbour in need. Or, perhaps you know of a Snow Angel on your block. Head to the City’s website and fill out a nomination form to show your appreciation. Nominated Snow Angels will receive a letter of appreciation, a Snow Angel toque and will be entered in a monthly draw to win tickets to a Frontenacs game.
Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines. Further, help us spread the word via Twitter and Facebook by sharing the link and encouraging the participation of your friends and family. By joining together in our weekly challenge, we hope to accomplish big and positive things for our community.
