What are you doing for Leap of Kindness Day 2020?

 As many of you may know, 2020 is a leap year, which means we get one extra day in February. Have you thought about what you can do to make your extra day in 2020 more meaningful?

Here at the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, we believe the best way to spend that extra day is by doing something good for Leap of Kindness Day!

Leap of Kindness Day was invented in 2016 by the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce in Saratoga Springs, New York as a way to pay it forward through well-thought-out acts of kindness to others – donating supplies to local non-profits, volunteering at the local animal shelter, making a donation to a charity in need, sending care packages to military men overseas, delivering meals to first responders in your community, bringing flowers to the local nursing home – the possibilities are endless!

This year, the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce is joining over 50 chambers of commerce across more than 30 states in taking part in what is only the second annual Leap of Kindness Day.

“We really wanted to find a way to encourage our members to do something good in the West Chester community because, after all, our citizens are what make West Chester such a great place to live,” said Mark Yoder, president and CEO of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce. “We are happy to unite with the great number of other chambers across the country for Leap of Kindness Day 2020.”
