Blair’s willingness to lend a helping hand is an inspiration to many members of our community. 

From shovelling snow in the winter to cutting grass in the summer, Blair is always looking for ways to help a neighbour. 

“Blair always has a positive attitude and a smile on his face and is willing to help out the neighbourhood,” said his nominator, Tania. “He selflessly gives his time in all the little things he does for our community without ever expecting anything in return.”

That is why we at BradfordToday were so pleased to surprise Blair with our first-ever Random Act of Kindness, to show our gratitude for the time and effort he puts into making a difference for his neighbours.

Our team arrived at Blair’s house with a special gift, including a gift basket from Nancy's Nifty Nook and a $100 Home Hardware gift card.

“I honestly could not believe it! My neighbours are amazing for thinking of me. It was a rough day until I got surprised so I was very grateful,” said Blair. 

This Random Act of Kindness was a small way for us to celebrate someone who is always giving back. 

“I do this because I love everyone and helping the people around me. Tania is incredible to think I am worth this,” said Blair. “It is really cool to know she nominated me, thank you!” 

Thank you to our generous co-sponsor, Nancy's Nifty Nook, for making this Random Act of Kindness possible.

Our nomination form is always open to nominate someone in the community who selflessly gives of themselves despite challenges or hardships, is positive in the face of adversity, or is just plain extraordinary and deserves a special surprise.
