Next week might be my favorite week of the year. Random Acts of Kindness Week. For those of us social “do-gooders” it just doesn’t get better than this! Helping out a stranger, passing along the good, making someone smile. It feels good to do good.
You don’t have to tell anyone, or you can tell the world, to get others inspired to join in.
One time, I paid for the person behind me at Krispy Kreme. Another time, a teenage kid was in front of me at Walgreen’s trying to purchase a coke and a bag of chips. His debit card was declined, so I bought it for him. A few years ago, I bought dinner for a homeless man. That event may have changed my life more than his.
Nothing significant, but those two events may have changed that person’s day.
You can find out more at the Random Acts of Kindness Week blog.
I snagged this neat graphic from their page, which gives great ideas on simple things to do.
This is part of a bigger plan for this blog as well. Next week I’ll be launching my own “Do Good, Feel Good” campaign. Similar to Another Jennifer’s Monthly Giving Pledge (which I have taken!) I will challenge you each month to do something good. Maybe one thing a month, maybe one thing a day… you decide.
