Today I Share Compassion #12daysforgood

At first, it may be hard to pinpoint compassion in our community- to think of one news story, to single out just one person, one group, one organization and say ‘Aha! There! There is compassion’- it isn’t an easy task. In part, it’s hard to put such a fine point on compassion because the truth is, in Waterloo Region compassion is so woven into our daily lives, it’s become part of the way we do business.

In Waterloo Region, we have countless events throughout the year that celebrate people who demonstrate a strong desire to help. We actively encourage corporations and nonprofits to work together and we celebrate their successes. We’ve developed special programs to help volunteers deepen their engagement here. Maybe that’s why we have amazing people like Jessica Kuepfer in our community. Jessica’s a return Do-Gooder for 12 Days for Good who shows great compassion for the health of our community.

I love living in Kitchener-Waterloo because there are so many opportunities to help, to serve and to be fulfilled within the community. I am particularly focused on the nourishment of my community which is why I am involved in the annual House of Friendship Potato Blitz which collects potatoes and money for the food hamper program. I also am a strong supporter of NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association) because mental and physical health are bound together.
