Auckland City for Peace - Acts of Kindness 2015

Auckland City for Peace - Acts of Kindness 2015

Have you experienced an act of kindness around Auckland? Has someone stopped to help you when your car has broken down? Has someone stepped up in your community? Or simply had a nice conversation with someone at the bus stop?

We want to hear about it!
On 15th December it will be 4 years since Auckland adopted the City for Peace declaration, along with Mayor Len Brown joining Mayors for Peace International. Since then, Auckland has strived to value inclusion, diversity, social equality and tolerance in everyday life. So we want to celebrate!

By sharing your stories, we hope to celebrate all the good in our local communities and show that together, we can build a peaceful Auckland.

Like and submit your stories to our Auckland City For Peace - Acts of Kindness Facebook page or you can find the link on our Auckland City For Peace page as well, by the 15th of December for you're chance to win a special Peace Education Pack.
