Leap of Kindness Day 2024
Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce Encourages Acts of Kindness
Leap Year Fun Facts
A calendar year is typically 365 days long, which is how long it takes the Earth to complete one orbit around the Sun. However, you might be surprised to learn that 365 is a rounded number; it actually takes 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 56 seconds. In order to account for that extra time and make sure our seasons don’t start to drift, an extra day is added every four years, a.k.a. a leap year! This year on February 29th, the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce is encouraging the Saratoga Springs community to use their extra day to do something kind for someone else.
In 2016, the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce came up with the Leap of Kindness Day idea to help spread kindness in our places of employment, local coffee shops, friends, families, and of course our community. The Chamber has compiled a list of requests from local nonprofit organizations, which you can check out here to participate in Leap of Kindness Day 2024.
How to Join In
“To make this happen, local nonprofit organizations can send an email to Greg Dixon to share what your organization needs in 2024. These requests are posted on this webpage as they are received. Please let us know using the form below what specific acts of kindness you decided to do from this list or to achieve a mission important to you and your organization.” – Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce
