The big-picture goal for the day is just to spread kindness, love and cheer to someone else! This does not necessarily require a lot of time, creativity, money or even effort on your part… Sometimes the nicest gestures are the small ones that come right from the heart. Be a part of the love & kindness wave and see how good it makes you and the receivers feel! Here are some ideas to inspire you all to spread kindness and joy throughout the 'Random Acts of Kindness Day' (and every day!):
🌱 Mow your neighbor’s lawn or shovel their driveway
💚 Leave packaged snacks or treats (or a nice note!) for your mail carrier & delivery drivers
🥰 Spread the word about a small business or self-employed person you know - People who work for themselves need word of mouth referrals more than anyone else
🌱 Offer to get groceries for your friend, neighbor, or relative who has a hard time doing so
💚 Make a donation
🥰 Print a photo that brings back good memories and frame it for a friend or family member
🌱 Notice a kid being well-behaved? Tell his/her parents how good they are while the child is standing there. It will encourage the child to continue behaving well, and will make the parents feel good.
💚 Fill up the gas tank and/or wash the car for your partner and then leave a friendly note on the dashboard for him/her to find.
🥰 Bring treats (or healthy snacks) to work to share with coworkers
🌱 Spread positivity & leave nice comments on blogs and social media posts
💚 Do the task or chore that no one else wants to do (at work or at home)
🥰 Be empathetic – Really try to put yourself in the other person’s shoes
🌱 Be thoughtful – Did your co-worker have a bad day today? Bring him/her a coffee tomorrow morning!
💚 Be encouraging
🥰 Lend a favorite or inspirational book to someone
🌱 Compliment people on their home or garden
💚 Volunteer for a day at a charity
🥰 Pay for the coffee, the toll, or the bus fare for the person behind you
🌱 Let the person who seems rushed cut in front of you
💚 Help a stressed parent you know by offering to babysit
🥰 Put some coins in an expired meter
🌱 Give up your seat on public transport
💚 Hug someone…like, a super awesome bear hug!
🥰 Pay a compliment to every person you come in contact with (or as many as you can!)
🌱Smile at a stranger
💚 Cook a meal for someone
🥰 Bring flowers, a bunch of lavender/eucalyptus, a new plant, or a nice smelling candle to a friend or family member
🌱 Donate clothes, toys, gadgets, etc
💚 Give a 5 minute hand or shoulder massage to someone
