Day Eleven of 21 days of random acts of kindness. Join along in the challenge to get out of our heads and into helping others.
Day Eleven: Random Act of Kindness
Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are.
Day Eleven’s random act of kindness challenge is to create a gift basket. There are lots of opportunities to donate gift baskets:
- charity events often have gift baskets for bidding that are simply from people who donated the items
- your child’s school most likely does a fundraiser during the year and has gift baskets. Even if they put the gift baskets together from classroom items, they’d be delighted to receive extra baskets
- prepare a gift basket of your favorite things for a loved one that’s going through a difficult time or just because
- find a place in your house that you can begin collecting cute items you find on clearance then when you have an event, put it all together in a basket.
Don’t worry if you don’t have cellophane or know how to make it look pretty in a basket. The coordinator of the charity or fundraising event you go to will take care of that.
Will you try making a gift basket for charity? Let me know below in the comments.
We aren’t looking for huge, life-altering acts. What small, intentional act can you do for someone else today? Then stick with it for 21 days! Find the full 21 days of random acts of kindness challenge here.
