National Random Acts of Kindness Day

February 17

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation states “kindness really does start with one — one person, one act, one place, one city, one county, and one movement with one goal in mind: to make our world a kinder place one act at a time and, every single one of us can play a part in this mission.” Some suggestions for random acts kindness include complimenting people, smiling at strangers, leaving quarters at the laundromat, making donations or write positive sticky notes and place them on co-workers’ desks.
