Random Acts of Kindness Challenge

It’s Cool to be Kind


From Random Acts of Kindness Day on Thursday 17th February 2022 please take part in FirstLight Trust’s challenge to perform one random act of kindness every day for one month.

Be kind to others, yourself and the environment for 30 days and make a positive impact to your life and the life of others.

Sign up below to take part and ask your friends and family to sponsor you in your amazing feat. Not only will you be doing something wonderful every day, but you will also be helping to support many veterans of the Armed Forces, the Emergency Services and their families going through a tough time.

Your first random act of kindness can be fundraising for an awesome charity called FirstLight Trust!

Starting on 17th February 2022, the ‘It’s Cool to be Kind’ challenge will run until 17th March 2022. Please do update us on your progress by sending pictures and text to office@firstlighttrust.co.uk or by tagging us on social media:

Facebook & Twitter: @firstlighttrust

Instagram: @firstlight_trust

If you miss the start date, please do jump in anytime between 17th February and 17th March!

Once signed up, just go to our JustGiving page to create your own fundraising page: https://www.justgiving.com/firstlighttrust

We know that your time is precious, and we want this to be worthwhile for you. We’re setting you the aim to fundraise at least £500, which will enable FirstLight Trust to support veterans and their families in a truly impactful way.

 We know this is a big ask but we believe in you! If you reach this target we will send you a FirstLight Trust goody bag including a T shirt, pin and wristband.

You’re amazing whether you reach the target or not and remember the most important part of this challenge is to have fun!
