Day one of 21 days of random acts of kindness. Join along in the challenge to get out of our heads and into helping others.
Day One: Random Act of Kindness
A little thought and little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money. ~ John Ruskin
With the dangerously cold temps in the mid-west the last few days, to kick off the 21 days of random acts of kindness, my son ran out hot chocolate to our mail carrier.
He ran out there so fast I didn’t get the best picture of it.
I’m not sure who received more joy from this exchange – my son or the mail carrier. My son ran back in with a huge grin and red cheeks, acting a little embarrassed, then asking what we could do next.
My kids were so excited by my suggestion of 21 days of kindness they immediately took matters into their own hands. They began throwing suggestions of what we could do for others especially with the super cold temps we are experiencing.
I highly suggest you recruit your little ones for the next 21 days. Kindness comes naturally to children and they will help stretch you out of your comfort zone.
I’ve gathered the best acts of kindness to do with children from around the web here.
