Those who posted their good deeds on social media were also given the chance to receive a $1,000 donation to a local charity of their choice.

As promised, two good deeds were selected in a random draw to receive the prize from Global News:

  • The Best Buddies Boys’ Club from St. John’s School in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.
  • Maple Grove Elementary School in Lachine.

A huge congratulations to both our winners, who each get $1,000 to give to a charity of their choosing.

Your acts of kindness inspired others to do good deeds and the campaign was a trending topic on social media by noon on Thursday.

Thank you again to everyone who participated in the campaign and made Montreal a greater place.
