Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Month
Random Acts of Kindness Month
February is the month of love, and what better way to show it than with random acts of kindness? These are unexpected, sweet gestures that spread the love throughout your family, friend group, and community. Here are a few ways to participate:
Cook or Bake for a Neighbor
If you fancy yourself a bit of a chef (or even just a wannabe cook), put your love of meal prep to good use by crafting a dish especially for a favorite neighbor. Food is always a welcome treat! Go with something that’s easy to reheat, like a casserole or stew, or a delectable dessert, like cookies or cupcakes.
Volunteer at a Non-Profit
Fill up your heart and make a real difference by volunteering your services to a local non-profit. Contact your city’s animal shelter or food bank and see what they need most right now. One thing is for certain – they can always use a helping hand.
Offer to Walk Your Friend's Dog While They Relax
The past year has been a stressful one, and we’re all playing catch up. Offer a buddy an hour of their time back by taking their pooch on his daily walk. They get some “me time” and you get to bond with a cute puppers. Win-win!

Send Long-Distance Friends an Unexpected Postcard in the Mail
