Today is Random Act of Kindness Day in Grey-Bruce and across Canada.

She says it has a long history of people taking care of each other.

Beatty says they have been going around to businesses handing out candies with cards attached to them.

She says they can give them out to their customers as a reminder that this is a very caring community.
