National Random Acts of Kindness Day

Random acts of kindness offer a glimmer of hope and happiness in a time where the news is anything but positive. Why not spread a little sunshine to a complete stranger and do a little something to make the world a better place?


How can I spread kindness?

  • Try something as simple as hanging back a little longer to hold a door for a stranger.
  • If you can afford it, why not pay for the order of the person behind you in line at Starbucks.
  • Offer to help somebody with groceries, loading a car, or something similar.
  • Leave a kind note on a neighbor’s door or a random car.
  • Compliment somebody who’s looking particular down and out.

There are millions of ways to do something kind for another person, just because you feel like passing on a little joy.

Today, on National Random Acts of Kindness Day, why not take a few minutes to do something kind for another person and, for bonus points, encourage that person to pay it forward.
