National Random Acts of Kindness Day Saturday February 17, 2018

System - Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Merriam Webster defines kindness as “the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate”. What better way to spend a day than carrying out acts of kindness for everyone – family, co-workers, and even random strangers.

Here are some incredible ideas that you could do for others:

  • Donate food, toys, or treats to a local animal shelter or pet adoption enterprise
  • Pick up the phone and call someone you haven’t heard from in ages
  • Pay for the person behind you in the drive through
  • Compliment a total stranger on their clothing, hair, etc…
  • Don’t take the prime parking space – leave it for someone else
  • Put an anonymous card / note on someone’s desk at work
  • Smile at everyone you come across
  • Send mysterious flowers to someone who’d never expect it was from you
  • Have your child write a note to his/her teacher
  • Stick smiley face stickers in random places like public restroom mirrors
  • Hold doors open for everyone
  • Use your manners – say please, thank-you & you’re welcome all day long
  • Only spread positive posts on social media
  • Smile and wave at other drivers in rush hour traffic
  • Leave a very generous tip for a server
  • Take the day off work and volunteer somewhere
  • Take your neighbor’s garbage cans in
  • Bring donuts or baked treats to work
  • Go to your local park and pick up litter
  • Brings treats to the fire station, police department, or senior homes
