It seems like just about every day of the year is the National Day of something lately. Sometimes it’s ridiculous—do we really need a day devoted to dog biscuits (that’s next week, if you’re nodding enthusiastically)?
Still, Random Acts of Kindness Day is something I can get behind.
And it’s the perfect day to get involved in our Random Acts of Kindness Challenge. It’s super simple:
- Take a picture while performing a random act of kindness. It can be as simple as putting a quarter in a parking meter that’s about to expire or paying for the person behind you at the Starbucks drive through.
- Post the picture on social media with the hashtag #WwKBeKind.
That’s it! By doing those two things you will automatically be entered to win two family passes from The Westchester Children’s Museum (pretty kind of them, no?). We currently have very few entries, so your chances of winning are fantastic.
Need a little help thinking of ideas? I’ve got you covered. Sign up for my Kindness Kit, which includes:
- an ideas list with enough inspiration to commit a Random Act of Kindness every single day in February
- free printable tags to leave behind like a kindness ninja
- a little resource list pertaining to the ideas list with local organizations and some inspiration
One of my favorite things to do (which is incredibly simple!) has been leaving little notes of encouragement around town. I printed a bunch of them up along with my kindness tags and I leave them on bathroom mirrors, on shelves, and inside library books whenever I remember. My daughters absolutely love this. Maybe I’m a dork (I totally am), but it’s fun to imagine someone who really needs a pick me up finding a message that really speaks to them in that moment—a little gift from the universe.
