Make Kindness the Norm, Everyday!

February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day. In a world where kindness feels a bit scarce, it is up to all of us to do the little things that make the day brighter. Here are some suggestions.

  • Leave quarters in the laundromat.
  • Leave a good review for a local business online.
  • Donate used books to the library.
  • Give away your parking spot.
  • Leave a good tip for a server.
  • Let someone merge into traffic ahead of you.
  • Reach out to a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while.
  • Smile at everyone you see today.
  • Leave a small note or gift in your mailbox for your postal worker.
  • Offer to dog or cat-sit, for free.
