Help us create 100 positive actions in our city!
Now, more than ever, we need to bring Hamilton together. This June, the theme of 100in1 is People Make Hamilton. People Make Hamilton aims to encourage and highlight 100 or more community initiatives from June 5 to July 3rd that bring Hamilton Together (virtually) through positive actions. 

We are reaching out to you to inspire and create 100 or more positive actions to bring Hamilton Together virtually.  Please join us in challenging yourselves and others to participate! 

You can do as many acts as you can in one month - please share them on social media using #100in1dayham and #peoplemakehamilton. So let’s get started and bring Hamilton together!
