Being kind is more important now than ever before. The news is all pretty much doom and gloom, and we’ve all been through a lot in 2020, and it’s only November.
Being kind doesn’t have to be hard, and it doesn’t have to come in the form of some out of this world grand gesture (we’re not saying it can’t either).
Kindness can be something so small that just puts a smile on someone else’s face, because even the tiniest bit of kindness can make a difference.
So, here’s a list of 25 small acts of kindness that you can do to help us in our mission to make the world a better place.
- Make someone a cuppa
- Donate to an organization
- Check in on a friend
- Ask people how they really are doing
- Smile at someone in the street
- Volunteer somewhere that needs help right now
- Help out a neighbour
- Send someone a little gift to let them know you are thinking about them
- Comment something positive on a post
- Reconnect with someone you’ve lost contact with
- Leave a happy note for a loved one to find
- Gift someone something small
- Pet a doggy (safely)
