PR agencies are often bemoaned for cliché campaigns around specific nominated days, weeks or months, whether National Donut Day, Apprentice Week or Movember, but one that I have a personal soft spot for however is “Random Acts of Kindness Day”.
It’s a great concept and one that helps lift our heads from the daily grind in order to make a small contribution to others that will either bring a smile to their faces or possibly a more profound change.
Ironically it is also the exact day that my son had an horrific accident that put him in a coma for 15 days seven years ago. It also became a day that opened my eyes to the simple acts of kindness we received as a family from friends, relatives and even people we had never met.
In support of Random Acts of Kindness Day this year, the Source PR team thought it would be great if we led by example and contributed our own act of kindness.
So, we are proposing to give six months of free PR support and advice, social media management and content creation to a nominated charity. We’re encouraging readers of this blog to simply nominate their charity of choice and we can contact them to offer our services as a simple, yet random, act of kindness.
Over the last few years we have been involved in supporting a range of charities as various organisations come in contact with our lives. I have been lucky enough to have been able to privately raise funds or donate to charity and equally I have been ‘unlucky’ enough to have been at the receiving end of charitable support.
It is not until you are at the point of need that you really understand the incredible work that they so selflessly do. Some of the charities that have touched my life include:
- Ronald McDonald House
- Brain Injury Trust
- Oscar’s Angels
- National Autistic Society
- Cystic Fibrosis Trust
Nominate your charity
If I was to ask readers who are the top five charities that have touched their lives, everyone would be different – there are no right or wrong answers, but just ones that matter to you.
If you have a spare moment, let us know which charity you’d like to nominate via this form or drop me an email at Louis@sourcepr.co.uk and we will do the rest! Keep an eye out on Facebook as in a week’s time we’ll ask you to vote for one of our shortlisted charities.
