Get Started

You may already know what your 3 Things are and, in fact, you might already be doing them! Your 3 Things can be big or small. Just think about what you’re passionate about and what you can do to help. Together we can create more than 100 million acts of service across the country.


Here’s a small sample of some of the amazing things Canadians are doing:


  • Amber hosts a front yard BBQ to get to know her neighbours.
  • Lori helped sponsor a refugee family from Syria.
  • Sheldon teaches youth about Blackfoot culture, history and language.
  • Ken takes his kids, Adam and Ashlyn, to community building events.
  • Bob volunteers internationally to help improve the lives of those around the world.


If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out our Facebook page to see what fellow Canadians are doing (and don’t forget to post your own 3 Things as well).
