There is nothing spooky about Friday the 13th this November as the world takes a collective breath in honor of World Kindness Day - a global celebration promoting the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world.
We could all use a little kindness as 2020 comes to a close and we find ourselves reflecting on the past year’s strife. Even as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, many of our students have found a way to stay connected to their community and continue showing kindness through volunteer activism. Now more than ever our community needs lifting up and a touch of normalcy.
Pay It Forward
- Run errands for an elder neighbor
- Tutor a student
- Foster an animal
- Serve meals at a local shelter
- Organize a yard sale for charity
- Smile with your eyes, even while wearing a mask
- Slow down and let a car cut in front of you or merge
- Pay for the person behind you at your local coffee or donut shop
- Return someones cart at the grocery store
- Hold the door for someone
When it comes to showing kindness in our communities, there are so many simple things we can do to get involved, stay connected, and show we care.
