Fairfield Chamber Asks Public to Participate in Leap Day of Kindness


All of us get an extra day in 2024 and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce is encouraging the public to use the opportunity to make a difference.

Leap of Kindness Day aims to inspire folks all around the world to use their extra day to do something kind for someone else.

Invented in 2016 by the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, in Saratoga Springs, New York Leap of Kindness Day started with hundreds of area organizations helping thousands of local people by donating their time, talent, and treasure to support area nonprofits, seniors, first responders, health care workers, veterans, animal shelters, etc.

In 2020, the initiative expanded with more than 200 communities in the U.S., Canada, and Ireland participating in Leap of Kindness Day. Some of the Leap of Kindness Day activities included: delivering breakfast to first responders, bringing flowers or non-skid socks to nursing homes, collecting personal care items for shelters, cleaning up trails, and baking cookies for school bus drivers.

For 2024, the goal is to continue growing Leap of Kindness Day into a global celebration of kindness with a powerful positive impact.

The Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce hopes to inspire others in the community to be a part of Leap of Kindness Day as well.
