Be Kind Sydney Day 2022

Are you ready to put kindness into action?

This World Kindness Day –13th November – we’re launching our second Be Kind Sydney Day. And this year, we’re making it easier for individuals, companies, and charities to get involved. Read on to learn how.

What is Be Kind Sydney Day?

Designed to raise profile and much-needed funds for grassroots Sydney charities. Last year, Be Kind Sydney Day raised $352,000 for Sydneysiders in need! 100% of funds raised* for participating charities reached the changemakers that hold our communities together each-and-everyday. Providing meals, shelter, work pathways, and a kind ear and more to those in need.

Can you help us raise $1 million dollars to support Sydneysiders in need?

This year our mission is to work with 100 local charities and help each to raise $10,000. Over the course of the 2-week campaign we will help Sydneysiders come together to help those doing it tough in our city.

Whether you’re a charity, company, or individual, we’ll provide you all the tips, tricks, & step-by-step support to help you fundraise for your cause.

We’re looking for kind businesses, and people keen to spread kindness across our city.

We’re asking you to contribute funding to the Be Kind Sydney Day matching pool, and/or to champion the participating charity of your choice.

Nicole Abadee was one of our 2021 Charity Champions 
who helped to raise more than $11k for

Here’s what she has to say…

Nicole Abadee
2021 Charity Champion
“There is no organisation I trust more than Sydney Community Foundation to distribute funds to those in need in our beautiful city. That’s why I was so happy to be involved in their major fundraising initiative in 2021, calling on my own community to support asylum seekers by donating to the Asylum Seekers Centre. I am looking forward to being involved again this year.It’s the least I can do.”
