There are so many ways you can do local good in your community—right here, right now. Even the smallest actions have the power to change someone’s life.

Doing local good is all about helping people who might be struggling. It can be as simple as smiling at a stranger, or a coordinated effort to raise money for good at your workplace. By taking action, you’re helping put an end to some of the biggest issues in Calgary—including mental illness, domestic violence, and poverty. You’re showing your belief that everyone deserves to live a great life in a great place. You are a champion for your community.

Here are a few ideas to get started. We’d love to hear how you’re doing your own local good too. Let us know and help inspire others by tagging your social posts with #DoLocalGood!

Invest in your community to see change at a local level. Your gift gives your family, friends, and neighbours a hand up when they need it most.
