Love Your Streets

love heartsA network that supports more than 100 Street Angel and night time economy projects across the UK is encouraging people to #Do1NiceThing as part of its Love Your Streets campaign for 2012. The campaign is being launched to tie in with Valentines Day.

Love Your Streets has seen hundreds of people mobilised to make a difference in their local community through clear-up days, litter collecting and acts of kindness.

This new campaign for 2012 is calling on people to do one nice thing for someone else every day in 2012. Ideas are limitless and include smiling and saying hello to people, thanking those who serve you in some way, calling in on an elderly neighbour, volunteering or organising a community idea such as Big Lunch or a neighbourhood clean-up.

The campaign links with a government initiative launched earlier this year by communities secretary Eric Pickles called A Year of Service, which is encouraging faith groups to take a lead in offering service their locality.

Paul Blakey, founder of Street Angels – Christian Nightlife Initiatives Network, explains: ‘Last year we saw communities coming together to bring love and joy to the wider community from giving out hot cross buns at Easter to clearing a neighbourhood of all its rubbish.

‘This year we are encouraging people to do one nice thing for others every day of 2012. I see week in and week out the difference people who care can make within the wider community – we need more of it!’
