Ontario Set to be Even Kinder Today

Who: The Commonwell Mutual Insurance Group and independent local cafes across Ontario
What: Caffeinated Kindness! The Commonwell returns with their annual Common Kindness Day event by pre-paying for 1000 morning coffees in small towns across the province.
What else: The Commonwell is also announcing a $300k+ commitment through their C.A.R.E. program to fund local charities and asking local residents in the communities they serve to help select the most worthy charities by using #CommonKindnessDay.

When: Wednesday January 10, 2018 from open. While supplies last

Where: The following cafes across Ontario:

                        Belleville: Brake Room – 34 Dundas Street East
                        Whitby: 3 Steps Up Café – 605 Brock Street
                        Alexandria: The Quirky Carrot - 1 Main Street South
                        Ottawa Central: Origin Trade Café – 111 York Street

Details: 10 independent coffee shops across Ontario will be giving away 100 free coffees (or teas) to the first patrons through the doors. The complimentary caffeine hit comes with just one simple request: to pay the kindness forward. Each person to receive a free beverage is asked to add to the coffee kindness tab to create a ripple effect, allowing even more people in the community to enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee.
