#12days4good was first launched by House of Friendship, inspired by the giving spirit during the holiday season, inviting local organizations to give back through simple good deeds for 12 consecutive days in December. In 2017, House of Friendship approached Kindred Credit Union to take this campaign of thoughtful, intentional philanthropy forward with the resources it needs. We’re thrilled to be selected as one of this year’s participants.
As a company, we strive to help brands and people flourish. In recognition of the times we live in, we’re using our day4good to spotlight three nonprofit organizations/agencies that are helping people flourish right here at home in Kitchener-Waterloo.
