Gov. Nikki Haley announced the South Carolina Christmas Challenge yesterday at the 47th annual Governor’s Carolighting — perform a random act of kindness during this holiday season, according to a release issued by her office Tuesday.
“I want to challenge each and every family to do one random act of kindness. Whether it’s having a soldier for dinner because they don’t have a family nearby to go to, visiting a nursing home, or baking cookies for an elderly neighbor, each act of kindness can help affect our state for the better,” Haley said. “If every family in South Carolina commits to doing this, we would have 5 million kind acts across our state. How special would that be?”
South Carolinians can participate in the challenge by committing at least one random act of kindness for a person in need — from giving a blanket to a homeless person or visiting a nursing home — anything that has a positive effect on South Carolina citizens and communities.
People can share their stories by posting them on the governor’s Facebook page or tweeting them to the governor at @nikkihaley using the hashtag #SCChristmasChallenge.
