MGM's Random Acts Of Kindness 2021

MGM's Random Acts Of Kindness 2021

Kindness is never wasted. It always makes a difference.

Another year down and another successful Mount Gravatt Mazda RAOK community crusade accomplished!

At MGM, we think every day should be Random Acts of Kindness Day. Every year we celebrate this mantra by sprinkling KINDNESS around our community like confetti. 

Our 2021 MGM kindness commandos hit the streets spreading acts of kindness including compassionate gestures, community involvement and genuine acts of goodwill. We got to witness many smiles, warm fuzzies, delight and gratitude from all walks of life. There was nothing more satisfying for our team than doing something nice for someone else, without them asking and without doing it for a return.

It's times like these that often cause us to better notice the everyday acts of humanity that can bring a smile to our faces and brighten up our days.  

Mount Gravatt Mazda is just as passionate about our community involvement as we are about our customers’ satisfaction.

Kindness starts with one. One smile. One compliment. One cup of coffee. One conversation.

See below for our intentional moments of kindness included in this years crusade...

 We kicked off our #payitforward with kindness crusade with the help of our friends at Just Cause Bunch. Let's face it, the last 12 months has been full of twists and turns, but one thing that has remained consistent is Queensland Health's Chief Health Officer, Dr Jeannette Young's commitment to keeping Queenslander's Safe. From our team to yours, thank you!

Last night as part of our #payitforward with kindness crusade 16 volunteers from team MGM donned an apron and got on the 'tools' at the FareShare Kitchen in Brisbane.

In a heart-felt 3 hours we helped prep, cook and pack 1334 nutritious meals for those in need and suffering food insecurity.

Our team went home with smiles on our faces, a delicious warm meal in our tummies and a heart filled with a wonderful sense of community.
Thank you Chef James & Chef Mal, if you'll have us, we'll definitely be back!

Special mention to Flour & Chocolate Morningside as the delicious afternoon tea wouldn't have been possible without your help!

We visited Woolworths at Westfield Garden City to #payitforward by randomly purchasing groceries for a few local families in our community. We hope that this gesture allowed them to treat themselves or someone they knew with a little extra kindness.

Monique visited Camp Hill Outside School Hours Care with pizzas in tow to celebrate National OSHC (Outside School Hours Care) Educators Day. These A*M*A*Z*I*N*G educators do far more than care for our children: they act as inspirational educators, role models and mentors and are a significant contributor to our local school community. Also a big congratulations on their recent ‘Exceeding Expectations’ accreditation. Well done and hats off to you all! ๐Ÿ‘

Sonja visited Carolyn and her team Kelly & Sally at Beyond DV with pamper-hampers for survivors of domestic violence. We cannot thank you and your team enough for the important work you do and hope that each recipient of our RAOK finds a little time to reflect on how amazing they are!

Sonja, Chloe and our TradeMutt mates Dan & Ed popped down to the local servo to refuel the Blue Collar workers, just in time for a trademark #poets.
This well-deserved pit-stop meant a handful of tradies, truckies and blue-collar workers received not only fuel vouchers but a statement #trademutt lunch purse filled with a signature Ice Break or two! Enjoy the weekend lads!
 

Small Steps๐Ÿ‘ฃ

We signed off our #payitforward with kindness crusade with a visit from Sue & Lloyd from Small Steps 4 Hannah foundation. Everyone at team MGM stands with you, and appreciates your quest to bring our community together in the fight against domestic and family violence.
We look forward to working with you and the foundation in the future.
