Leap of Kindness Day
The Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce's first will take place, on Saturday, February 29, 2020.
Leap of Kindness Day happens every 4 years and was originally started in 2016 by the Saratoga County Chamber. The idea is to get as many people in our community as possible to use the extra day we all get in a Leap Year to do something kind for someone else. Beyond Saratoga County, there were more than 50 chambers in 30 states who joined the Leap of Kindness Day celebration. They had thousands of people take part in the celebration of kindness. Some cooked breakfast or delivered lunch for first responders. Others delivered flowers or socks to residents in local retirement homes. Local employers collected clothes, food and money for a wide range of local charities. Others acted individually sending a thank you card to someone who meant a lot to them.
And now as we inch closer to Leap of Kindness Day 2020, the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce's goal is to see that even more individuals and employers come together to do something kind for someone else using the extra day they will get on February 29, 2020.
