St. Jacobs, ON, February 17, 2017– In honour of Random Act of Kindness Day, Home Hardware encouraged customers to engage in community building gestures across Canada. Titled #HelpAtHome, this initiative rewarded generous customers with gift cards to the Canadian retailer. Canadians could contribute by sharing their photos of their random acts of kindness.
"Small acts can make a big difference," says Terry Davis, CEO, Home Hardware Stores Limited, who revealed the initiative to customers on Facebook. "Home Hardware is proud to be a company known for our service and we encourage our customers in communities across Canada to join us in random acts of kindness, not just today, but every day."
Hundreds of Canadians stepped up to participate in the challenge. Five customers were rewarded for their kind actions which ranged from helping vehicles get on the road safely after a big snow fall to running errands for some elderly friends.
The team at Home Hardware participated in a random act of kindness of their own by donating a pile of toys and games to SickKids for them to distribute to patients. Each gift was accompanied by a handwritten letter from staff members at the St. Jacobs corporate office.
