This started as a Facebook challenge and now is a blog challenge as well. I invite you to join us on our endeavor to spread kindness.
March 1st was DAY 1 of the “31 DAY ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ Challenge”.
You can start today. It’s never too late to join. Every ‘act of kindness’ counts. I encourage you to write down these acts of kindness in the comments section below or to keep a journal. Some of you have already started a kindness journal.
I post at least two or three suggestions daily. These are only a suggestion. You may recognize a different need. You can add it to the comments below or to your journal. Kindness is about… seeing a need and helping.
Kindness starts with us!
Call a loved one you haven’t spoken to in a while.
DAY 2 of Kindness Challenge…
Bring donuts or other delicious sweets to work
Leave a kind note for a family member or friend
Collect can goods for a food bank
Donate blood (if able)
Make it a point to smile at every one you see or pass by
Send flowers to a teacher (current or former) who has dedicated his/her life to teaching
Donate old books or magazines to a hospital or nursing home
Use this day to catch up. After all, it’s not about quantity. It’s about quality.
Praise someone at work for doing a good job
Check in on someone you know is alone
Make amends with someone you have wronged
Pay for the person behind you in the drive-thru
Hug a family member
Give your pocket change to someone who needs it
I have added the suggested ‘acts of kindness’ through March 9th. I will update the blog post on Monday, March 9th. I’m very excited with the impact we will have on others.
