That’s a wrap on our 2021 campaign, #CommentsOfKindness. We asked you to give thanks to a charity in your community who is doing good things for others and the response was outstanding! Almost 11,000 comments were posted on our First West Credit Union regional Facebook and Instagram pages. Every comment generated a $25 donation (up to $2,500 per organization with $150,000 available). We also awarded four $25,000 donations for a grand total of $250,000 invested in charities across British Columbia.

The four grand prize recipients were:  Archway Community Services, Cowichan Women Against Violence Society, Enderby & District Community Resources Centre and Penticton Recovery Resource Society (Discovery House). Congratulations to all 620 organizations who received the spirit of simple generosity through #commentsofkindness.

Follow First West Foundation’s Instagram page (@firstwestfdn) and learn more about some of the charities who received a #commentsofkindness donation. Our celebration series starts now through to December 31.
