“After all, it’s the little things that make a big difference.”
Can you imagine having a complete stranger come up to you at the grocery store and offer to pay for your cart full of groceries?
Or a random knock on your door for a bouquet of flowers?
Maybe there were trays of goodies and fresh fruit delivered to your work?
Or your lunch paid for at Subway or your coffee at A & W?
Shell Canada staff brightened the days of countless lives at they made “spontaneous” stops in Fox Creek on June 22 as a “Fuelling Kindness Day!”
The kind staff were wearing red shirts and introducing themselves; saying a brief explanation of what they were doing, handing out business cards that say “Fueling Kindness” and “After all, it’s the little things that make a big difference,” and “Making someone else’s day better.”
It was a great incentive to show their new presence in Fox Creek with the development of their yard and office down the Airport Road.
“We had such a great day. I can’t wipe the smile off my face as I think about how many people we were able to touch,” said Leanne Laverick, External Relations Advisor.
The Fueling Kindness day first started at the Shell Canada office in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.
The recipient’s reactions were inspiring and heartwarming.
Shell Canada staff were divided into teams and then hit the streets of Fox Creek to visit all of the following places:
- Rival Trucking
- ATB Bank
- Timber Ridge Inn
- Comfort Inn
- Best Western
- School Library
- School Office
- School Staff Room
- Town of Fox Creek
