At this time of year, we believe small acts of kindness can have a profound impact. At McGowan Transcriptions we look to inspire each other to be catalysts for positivity and find ways to show compassion and make a difference where we can. As it’s Christmas, we wanted to share a few examples of how we have helped others this year in case it inspires you in any way. If you can encourage others by adding to this list, please do!

Edit: Since compiling these acts of kindness, it has inspired us to share a weekly list on our Team messenger system to encourage each other, there are so many small things we can all do to make a difference to our world
