Share your stories of everyday kindness

We know these COVID-19 times are difficult for everyone.

We understand you’re worried about your next paycheque and the health of yourself and loved ones.

But we’re all in this together and we can get through this crisis together.

That’s why the Red Deer Advocate wants to shine a light on the kind gestures that are so commonplace, even when times are challenging.

It’s the small things that matter, right?

We want to celebrate your neighbour who went grocery shopping for you when you were self-isolating.

We want to acknowledge that nurse who is working long hours to keep everyone safe.

Or, that truck driver, the grocery store clerk, or that little girl who put up hearts in her home’s window.

Share your stories about the everyday heroes in your life by sending them to

Please use the words “Everyday kindness” as the subject.

A selection of the submissions we receive will appear in each Tuesday’s newspaper and online as long as the pandemic persists.

Take care.

Kind gesture made all the difference

In March, when winter seemed never ending, Kevin Schropfer brought me (and several other friends) pussy willows, a sign that spring would come some day.

Such a considerate friend.
