Little Acts of Kindness

Looking for ways to keep in touch with your community – and continue supporting children that depend on Mary’s Meals – in these unprecedented times?

In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us are adjusting to life at home. The current situation is scary and uncertain but, together, we can get through it. As increasing numbers of people find themselves self-isolating and unable to go outside, we would like to pool our resources and do something practical to support them – but we need your help. 

With Little Acts of Kindness, we hope to give people here in Canada an opportunity to stay connected and support one another, while also helping to support the children who depend on Mary's Meals through raising awareness of our work. 

If you are healthy, have extra time on your hands and would like to give something back to others in your community, could you consider helping others in need by carrying out little acts of kindness like these?

  • walk someone’s dog
  • shovel driveways and walkways
  • pick up shopping and other essentials
  • call someone for a chat
  • Leave a kind note for someone who could use an encouraging word

When you request a free Little Acts of Kindness kit, you'll receive an information letter and some Mary's Meals brochures and donation cards to leave behind when performing your acts of kindness. These materials will help to spread kindness across Canada and our global Mary's Meals family.

Your little acts of kindness can make a big difference!

If your church, school or organization would like to participate in Little Acts of Kindness, please connect with us.

We are so grateful for your kindness, compassion and support in these uncertain times.

*Please note: this service is 100% voluntary. We will not be able to reimburse people for fuel or mileage. We encourage volunteers to seek out friends/family members/associates in their local community who may be in need of a Little Act of Kindness.

*Our volunteers will not be accepting any form of payment but will provide recipients of "Acts of Kindness" with information about Mary's Meals Canada and a donation card. They can support our life-changing work, if they choose to do so.
