Campaign to spread cheer
The Pilbara branch of Act Belong Commit is promoting acts of kindness this month with a new social media-focused campaign designed to put a smile on locals’ faces.
The Feel Good Feb campaign encourages residents to do random acts of kindness for others, then send in a description or photo to spread the positive vibes.
Act Belong Commit Pilbara health promotion co-ordinator Gemma Brooks said Feel Good Feb was about promoting the simple but significant ways people could make a difference.
“Random acts of kindness, how- ever small or large, can really boost someone else’s day, but they’re a great way to get a mental health boost too,” she said.
“It can be anything really. It could be returning someone’s trolley to the trolley bay, volunteering for places like SAFE or other notfor-profits or charities, or it could be smiling at a stranger or shouting someone a coffee.”
The Feel God Feb campaign is borrowed from an independent Eastern States initiative designed to improve life satisfaction and sense of community.
Ms Brooks said people could post their random acts of kindness on their local branch Facebook page.
Karratha residents Ainsley Harch and Beth Rogers share baked goods as part of Feel Good Feb.
