The Salvation Army believes that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity. To treat others with dignity is their right and our responsibility. For the second consecutive year, The Salvation Army is announcing May as Dignity Month in support of the Dignity Project and its aim to raise money to fight poverty across Canada. With this in mind we invite you to participate in 31 Days of Dignity—an opportunity to regard the dignity of others. When we do this we are saying we are all the same, created with value and worthy of respect.
Each day we will suggest a simple act that can be done to promote the dignity of another person. We will also highlight a related story of someone connected to The Salvation Army.
