How Canadians are stepping up to Make the Season Kind

Special programming and local fundraisers from coast to coast to coast demonstrate how kind Canadians truly are.

CBC stations across the country campaign for kindness

(CBC Communications)

Throughout the month of December, CBC stations across the country are inviting you to help Make the Season Kind. We are celebrating the kindness of others with special programming, storytelling, and a virtual coming together in support of local charities. 

From dancing to donating, new friendships and longtime community centre connections,  Canadians are spreading kindness in many unique ways. Here are just a few stories of inspiring acts of kindness from across the country.

Kelowna, B.C.: A retired couple has pulled 16,000 cans out of the woods and another 16,000 from Kelowna to donate to Central Okanagan Search and Rescue

Calgary: We asked you to share acts of kindness — and were flooded with hundreds of heart-warming tales

Edmonton: Gratitude for the food bank's role in their lives inspires Edmonton podcasters to give back

Winnipeg: Harvest Manitoba breakfast program to adapt format, continues to feed families in remote learning

Toronto: Giving back to his community became central to musician after the death of his wife

Montreal: At Tyndale St-Georges, I found where I belonged — and the love of my life

Moncton: Struck by loneliness of seniors in pandemic, N.B. student pairs them with peers

Lunenburg, N.S.: South Shore couple spreads Christmas cheer one waltz at a time

P.E.I.: Island children raise money, and hope, through custom Christmas ornaments
