Today is #GivingTuesday and if you have donated to organization in the past you probably were bombarded with emails today to donate. I know my phone has been beeping all morning.
We know that it is better to give than to receive, however kindness
comes in many forms that don't cost money to do.
Noomii has started a #KindnessAdvent Calendar you can SUBSCRIBE to HERE. I started mine today! You will get suggestions for little acts of kindness every day starting today December 1st. Today’s suggestion is to call a friend or loved one you have not seen in a while. Reach out and connect!
If you prefer to create your own, creating a Kindness Advent Calendar is a great project to do with your kids tonight. It is easy. Take a blank calendar and write down something you and your family can do for someone else each day up until Christmas.
There is no reason to not carry this habit into 2016. Keep track of small acts of kindness every day. You can do that easily with the Kick Ass Plan. The weekly planning page has a reminder to jot down an act of kindness each and every day of the year.
Looking for ideas, try the RandomActs of Kindness Foundation. They have amazing resources and creative ways to increase your kindness to others.
Remember that “every act of kindness benefits the giver as well as the receiver” – quote by Katrina Mayer.
