As a town center and Goodwill Ambassador of the community, the team at Chautauqua Mall is sparking the spirit of giving in a meaningful way this holiday season. From now to December 27, guests are encouraged to Gift Kindness to others for a chance to win a $1,000 donation to the charity of their choice. Whether it’s holding the door open, handwriting a note to a loved one, or paying off a stranger’s layaway, kindness is the gift to give this holiday season.

Guests can select a random act of kindness in the form of a gift tag at the Gift Kindness activation, located at Chautauqua Mall next to Auntie Anne’s, or come up with their own act of kindness. For a chance to win the ultimate prize in support of charity, guests are encouraged to share their act of kindness on their public Instagram feed. To qualify for the contest they must also follow and tag Chautauqua Mall and tag the charity they love, and use the hashtag #GiftKindnessContest.

A very worthy #GiftKindnessContest winner will be chosen and notified in January 2020.

Julie Bihler, General Manager at Chautauqua Mall stated: “This holiday season, we are encouraging guests to give the gift of kindness to friends, family, partners, team members, acquaintances or strangers. Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give, and we hope this campaign will spark the spirit of giving in our community, one act of kindness at a time.”

Gift Kindness illustrates Chautauqua Mall’s commitment to celebrating the community with events and activations throughout the year. For additional information on the Gift Kindness campaign, visit
