The Joy of Spreading Random Acts of Kindness

There are many ways you can bring light and positivity to the world, one gesture at a time. Here are some ideas:

With Family, Friends and Neighbors

  • Surprise a friend or family member with a small treat on their “half-birthday.”
  • Call your local school district and offer to pay a child’s school-lunch debt.
  • Write a letter of encouragement to someone having a difficult time.
  • Donate flowers after an event to a nursing home.
  • When visiting new parents, bring their favorite meal and offer to take care of the baby while they relax and eat.
  • Help others out after a storm with snow removal and yard cleanup.

When Out and About

  • Leave a really big tip for a server in a restaurant, especially if you can see they are having a bad day.
  • Pick up and throw away trash you see left on a counter, table or floor.
  • Offer grace, kindness and patience to retail workers, and let them know when they are doing a great job.
  • Share encouraging words with a parent who is struggling with their child’s behavior.
  • Before you check out at a store, make sure your item has a price tag  on it.
  • Offer to let someone cut in front of you in line at the store.  

Quote- My goal is really just to leave a positive impact on everyone I meet. Whether it be a smile or a changed heart.






In the Community at Large

  • Donate blood.
  • Volunteer to be a translator for a community organization.
  • Bring extra produce from your garden and baked goods to a senior center.
  • Donate a new-owner kit to an animal shelter.
  • Attend a memorial service for a veteran.

In the Workplace

  • Check in with a new colleague every few days over their first month to see how they are doing.
  • If you hear a compliment about a co-worker, share it with them.
  • Send your co-worker a congratulatory note after they have finished a big report or presentation.
  • Bring in some healthy snacks for everyone to share.

Quote- No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
