About This Project

What’s it all about?

Our vision is to help Lacombe and surrounding areas to become even more compassionate with small acts of kindness! A ripple effect starts with one. One person to hold the door open. One person to leave an encouraging note on someone’s car. One person to listen with an open heart. One person to be a spark of kindness when another really needs it.

Learning to think about others begins with intentional actions. Would you consider doing one simple act of Compassion in your community every month?
