Random Acts of Kindness Week is February 14-20, 2021
@ThePartyNoodles #ExploreTheGood #MakeKindnessTheNorm #RandomActsofKindnessDay
Over the past few weeks, there’s been a lot of negative things happen in my local community of Howden Clough (No you probably won’t of ever heard of it but it’s near the Leeds IKEA and yeah you’ve probably been there!).
Anyway, I heard it was Random acts of kindness week and I suddenly felt inspired to do something for our local community. I didn’t want to just make one person smile, I want to inspire others in the area to do the same and I’m hoping the kindness will be contagious*… fingers crossed! xxx
*not covid contagious, please be sensible, wear a mask and wash your hands etc.*
So with my thinking cap on I’ve decided to create several Kindness Jars to give out. I’m aiming to make 10, but we’ll see.
So, What is a Kindness Jar?
An upcycled baby food jar that I’ve decorated with a kindness quote and I’ve filled them with activities that inspire others to spread kindness. You can then use the jar to put moments of kindness in (or a tealight candle if you want).
Every time you witness an act of kindness, write it down and place the memory in the jar. Collect memories, observations and unexpected surprises of kindness throughout the week.
On the last day of kindness week, Saturday, February 20, 2021, empty the jar and reflect back on the kindness you experienced, witnessed, or perhaps performed yourself.
Keep the jar going and continue to Explore the Good throughout 2021 and help Make Kindness the Norm.All the activities and inspiration has come from the offical page for Random Acts of Kindness week, find out more…
I’ve placed the first 4 in the Little Library on Leeds Rd and dotting others around the area. There will be a limited number available, but if you can’t get your hand on one of mine it’s super easy to make one yourself at home.
