#JLOgives is based on the Giving Circle model in which groups of individuals donate their time, talent and/or treasure and work together to give to charity or community projects. The ultimate goal is to increase awareness and engagement in the issues addressed by the charity or community project.
JLO members are encouraged to provide Random Acts of Kindness and Service (RAKS) throughout the community, such as paying for someone's meal, spending time with the elderly, donating a meal/snacks to our public safety officials, removing snow from a neighbors driveway or even adopting a family for Christmas.
Members will be documenting their RAKS and activities with photos on social media and using the hashtag #JLOgives. The hope is that these RAKS will spread through the Ogden community, motivate our members and the community to continue to provide gifts throughout the year.
To get involved in the campaign, simply perform a RAKS of your choosing, take a picture or share the story on social media using the hashtag #JLOgives.
