Happy December everyone! I love this time of year and decided to include a kindness project that would help bring joy to others. I believe that small acts of kindness can make big impacts in the lives of others which is why I’m starting 25 Days Of Kindness and I hope you will join in!
I’ve come up with twenty-five ideas (one for each day) that I can do. Most of them are free, others cost less than ten dollars, they don’t require a lot of effort on my part, but I know it will cause someone else to smile – and that’s the main part! I’ll include my list here and I encourage you to join with me in bringing more happiness to this world.
Maybe you can’t do something every day. That’s OK! Maybe you have your own ideas. That’s great! Any act of kindness works because it makes someone else’s day brighter, it makes you feel good, and joy is contagious! Use the hashtag #25DaysOfKindness or feel free to leave a comment below and let me know your ideas for giving during this Christmas time.
