One good turn deserves another, and another.
Scouts Canada hopes to inspire Canadians to perform good deeds for friends and neighbours during Good Turn Week, which runs from April 14 to 22.
The goal is “to foster a stronger sense of community and friendship in Canada through consideration for and assistance of others,” says Dylan Reinhart, national youth commissioner and chair of the National Youth Network of Scouts Canada.
During the week-long event, Canadians are invited to perform acts of kindness, such as passing on a parking ticket with time still left, or assisting and elderly neighbor with their yard work.
Scouts Canada members will also do their part. After each good dead, Scouts members will pass on a “good turn” bracelet to the recipient of the act of kindness and ask them to “pay it forward”.
You can share your “good turn” on Scouts Canada’s website by texting “Good Turn” with a description of the good deed to 51051.
