SOCIAL ACTION
At a time when the world seems cruel and frightening, the YMCA is asking kids and their families to perform 1,000 acts of kindness through December. This Kind Acts Challenge 2015 is sponsored by the Salt Lake and Weber County After School Programs. The idea is to inspire others with your own acts of kindness. Last year, the Y logged 1,700 acts, and is aiming for 2,000 this year. This can be as easy as bringing in the trash cans. YMCAUtah.org/1000kindacts-2015, through Dec. 31

PUBLIC HEARING
And you thought Salt Lake City was just a disorganized mess. Well, now you can take part in planning for the future—at least 25 years of the future. Plan Salt Lake is a comprehensive, citywide vision plan for the city, and has already gone through an extended review period with public input on many levels. The City Council will be reviewing it now before a possible adoption. Salt Lake City & County Building, 451 S. State, Council Chambers, Dec. 1, 7 p.m., SLCCouncil.com

SPENDING ACTION
Buy Local First Utah is about to launch Shift Your Spending Week starting on Nov. 27 (Black Friday), through Dec. 5 (which is just a normal-color Saturday). The idea is to shift at least 10 percent of your holiday shopping to locally owned, independent businesses. They're even offering businesses "unique and versatile" marketing materials to help them get the message out, Last year, holiday sales for local businesses were up 4.8 percent , which beat retail sales of national brands. Visit LocalFirst.org for more information.
