Last week I couldn’t stop talking about Random Acts of Kindness Day because it’s simply AMAZING!!
Kindness makes the world a better place, and I want everyone to participate.
Don’t get me wrong, it is not just for one day, I try to make it part of my every day in little ways that hardly get noticed, but it improves my mental health and impacts the people around me.
Some ways I regularly take part:
- Complimenting people
- Donating Blood
- Supporting small buisness
- Saying thanks often
- Picking up litter
- Leaving reviews
- Solving a problem
- Encouraging people to be themselves
- Treating everyone as individuals
Want some Kindess inspiration?
But Random Acts of Kindness day gives me an excuse to be EXTRA, to make an effort and do something different, which is why I shout about it so much because I want everybody to join in.
So this year, to do something special, I created 27 balloon animals with inspiring gift tags and cheerful little notes for the person to find.
Howden Clough Community Centre
I started my journey at my local community library shed, which is packed to the brim with fantastic books
It was a blustery day and I felt very windswept by the end of it so i’m glad I was hiding the balloons in libraries so they wouldn’t blow away!
Leeds Free Little Libraries
I went on a tour of 7 Leeds little libraries across Morley, Gildersome, Pudsey & Farsley
I was so impressed by the artwork and the feel of community spirit from each little library, it’s such a beautiful project, and I highly recommend checking out your local one.
Farsley Community Library & Hub
My last drop off was at the main Library in Farsley which i saved the balloons that where far to large for the little libraries.
Coffee break at Nan’s House
To recover from the wind I stopped at my Nan’s house in farsley an warmed up with a nice cup of coffee and a chat.
Yes I did dress for the occasion with my matching balloon animal leggings!
A HUGE THANKS to @DaniellesHomeBakery
Out of 27 balloons, I got 1 response!
And I was DELIGHTED!!
The point was to share kindness, so any SM tags were a bonus to me, and this one message brightened my day tenfold.
The little things that matter and receiving this message made all the hard work worth it.
I had completed my mission! 😁❤✨
Did you take part in random acts of kindness day?
I’d love to hear what you did. It doesn’t matter how big or small every little thing makes a big difference!
As a bonus act of kindness, I’ve started a featured Friendor (friend vendor) in my blog posts to shout out to other small business owners. This is not a paid-for advert, just something nice 😊
If you’d like your business to be featured, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading to the end. YOU’RE THE BEST!! 💚🎉
I hope you have a fabulous day!
