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 someone in need this holiday season. The generosity of Kingstonian’s can be measured by our collective fund-raising efforts in support of the United Way, the amount of food donated to the Partner’s in Mission Food Bank, and the list goes on. As we approach the holiday season, it’s important for us all to ensure that those who may be less fortunate, have what they need. Whether you choose to donate a bit of your time, a few extra bucks, toys, snow suits or food, remember that every little bit helps.
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.
