100 Acts of Kindness
100 Acts of Kindness Campaign: Intro
During the remaining weeks of our wintery months here in Regina, COR is bringing to our community the 100 Acts of Kindness Campaign. Over the next several weeks we are going to do our very best to recognize the many folks in both our lives – and the people we support — who make us smile. We will be recognizing people who go out of their way to make our days better by doing the little things (or the big things) that reflect the value they place on all those around them. These are the very people who exemplify what it means to be become more loving (the 3rd pillar of Gentle Teaching). We are going to recognize people for making the ordinary seem extraordinary!

Do You Want to Show Someone the Love!?!

It feels great to receive kindness, but it also feels good to give and value others as well. On our website, you will find a COR A-OK! button. Simply click it and get started on brightening the day of someone connected to the greater COR family. The A-OK! team will receive your submission, review, and plan to hit the streets to bring your nomination to life!
100 Acts of Kindness: Week 2
Week 2 of our 100 Acts of Kindness Campaign saw the AOKTeam from COR and Strategy Lab warming the hearts and nourishing the bodies of our fella citizens in downtown Regina with piping hot coffee and hot chocolate on a -35 degree Celsius day! A shout out to Atlantis Coffee for their generous support in spreading kindness! We are truly grateful!
100 Acts of Kindness: Week 3
Week 3 of our 100 Acts of Kindness Campaign saw the AOKTeam venture across the city to recognize and celebrate some incredible people bringing smiles to the faces of our fellow citizens each and every day! You are all truly amazing! Thank you.

Shannon Wiebe, Mentorship and Outreach

Hi!!  My name is Shannon.  In January I joined the COR family in the Mentorship and Outreach role.  I have to say that joining COR is very special to me.  Prior to COR, I had the privilege of residential planning with the families and individuals supported by COR. These families are so near and dear to my heart and I love that I can continue to be involved everyone’s  journey!!  Mentoring to me, is all about having meaningful moments and learning from one other.  Also about having fun!! 
A few things about me – I’ve been married for over 25 years now.  I have four children and two grand-daughters. I am a leader at Friendship Club.  I have my motorbike license and just sold my Harley last year to do a renovation to my bathroom.  My husband kept his!!

A message from Treeo

Dear COR:


First and foremost, this was an incredible, inspiring journey.  Here's a quote from a COR employee during TREEO 7, “COR has changed the way I see the world”. 
What a gift!  


During our activities, we met so many awesome people who shared amazing stories: employees opened about their histories, their families, their fears and their dreams - providing us a portrait of their purpose.  


Throughout, we intentionally asked questions and provoked thought to inspire a better understanding of the deeper why.  We uncovered vibrant spirits dedicated to the people COR supports.  Dedicated to connectedness, companionship and community.  Dedicated to gentle teaching.  


Here’s what we did: Over four months and over 500 meaningful interactions, we observed a strong alignment between employee and organizational purpose. We engaged CORs inner and outer circle, board members, family members, new staff and old staff in a series of activities that provided TREEO a massive amount of data for our discovery. Each of our activities allowed us to gather and analyze information about purpose, opportunities, values, beliefs and so much more.  


Looking back at our proposal ... what we didn’t plan for was how these interactions would affect us! So, thanks COR, you truly have changed the way we see the world.


To close, from Into the Wild, a read inspired during TREEO High Five, “happiness is only real when shared” - consider this an invitation to share - drop us a line anytime at


Sandy, Matt and Troy
