Over the years the Be Good to People Foundation has hosted and inspired countless kindness activations though Bright Friday™ has become the Foundation's signature program that our community looks forward to each year.
Bright Friday was created by Be Good to People® in 2014 in an effort to refocus people’s attention on the true meaning of the Thanksgiving holiday. We celebrate Bright Friday the day after Thanksgiving because on Thursday we give thanks and on Friday we give back.
Gather safely (thank you, Zoom!) with your loved ones on Thanksgiving and have conversations around what you're grateful for this year. Even in 2020 we know you can come up with a decent gratitude list. Discuss how you can use the gifts you've been given and are grateful for to go out and serve others.
On Friday, it's time to put your gratitude in action to give back!
Now more than ever, our world is in need of kindness and some extra love. It has been a tough year for most everyone and we know Bright Friday 2020 is going to have to look a lot different than years past - mask up, maintain your social distance and for heaven's sake, no big gatherings, Good people! We will not let a nasty virus stop us from Spreading the Good™! We're "pivoting" once again for these "unprecedented" times and have provided some Good ideas below. We'd love to hear yours too - please tell us in the comments below what you and your BGTP fam are planning!
