World Kindness Day

In honor of World Kindness Day being this past Wednesday, we wanted to take a moment to emphasize the importance of this celebration. Even though everyday should be world kindness day, here are some random acts of kindness you could do to make someone's day!

Give a stranger a compliment! You never know what someone is going through, so giving them a random compliment could make their day. Personally, when someone gives me a compliment I know I can think about it all day, so something as simple as “You’re so pretty” could put a smile on anyone’s face.

Pay for someone! Next time you’re at a restaurant or the movies, pay for the person that’s behind you. Not only will it make that person’s day, but it will encourage them to do the same for someone else. And you know what they always say, if you put good out into the world, good will come back to you! 

Donate to children in need! There are billions of kids who don’t get to see their families or experience real holiday celebrations like Thanksgiving or Christmas so if you have old toys or clothes that don’t fit anymore, donate to hospitals and put a smile on a child's face. Tis the season of giving! 

Cook Dinner for your family! Next time you see your mom or dad having a stressful day, you can help take away some of that stress by cooking for the family. It’ll help them relax and unwind for the night. It doesn’t have to be a big and extravagant dinner, it can just be a simple dinner, such as pasta. Not only will it show your family how thoughtful you are, but it’ll show them how giving and considerate you are.
