Random Acts of Kindness

A friend from Australia shared this link on facebook yesterday and it gave me such warm fuzzy feelings that I want to share it with you.  The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is the heart of the kindness movement whose aim is to help everyone create a better world by spreading awareness and increasing engagement in kind actions.  It was established in 1995 as a non-profit organization.

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation website is a resource for people committed to spreading kindness. They provide a wide variety of materials, including ideas for educators and schools, activities and lesson plans, inspirational quotations, videos and workplace resources—all free of charge.  As people from different cultures and from all walks of life join to spread kindness, they are creating a powerful, synergistic action throughout the world.

If you keep your eyes open, you’ll discover that kindness is all around us.  You can keep track of the kindness in your life in a journal or blog. Write about the ways you have been kind to people and about how others have been kind to you.  Writing about kindness will help you think in a more positive way in all facets of your life.

Commit to doing one kind thing for someone different every day for an entire year! Document your journey of kindness in a blog or journal, which will hopefully encourage other people to be kind too.  What a great idea!  The world could sure use a lot more kindness.  For more information about the foundation, to read inspiration stories or for kindness ideas, go to.....

And remember, "No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." -Aesop
