#ygkChallenge: Be A Snow Angel

ygk challenge, Snow Angel, shovelingWelcome 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.  This year the City of Kingston has introduced the Snow Angels Program.  A Snow Angel is someone who takes it upon themselves to help a neighbour by clearing their sidewalk or driveway of snow.  This generous act can go a long way to make the life of someone in your neighbourhood much easier.  This week we challenge you to be a Snow Angel for someone nearby who could use a hand.  Or, perhaps there’s a Snow Angel in your midst.  Take the opportunity to fill out the City’s 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 using the hashtag: #ygkchallenge. As you work towards completing this week’s task, please feel free to lend others a helping hand by providing tips on how you achieved success.
