Spread the Love: 5 Ideas for National Random Acts of Kindness Week

Finally here, is National Random Acts of Kindness week! The week of February 14-18 is celebrated as the time to get out there and do an act of goodness. This is your opportunity to share love and kindness with the environment, your friends, neighbours, family, colleagues, charities and complete strangers.

The Everyday Philanthropist invites you to do an unexpected Extreme Act of Kindness to an unsuspecting recipient each day! Here are 5 ideas to get you started:

 
Monday: Donate blood and potentially save up to 3 lives.

Tuesday: Drop off a plant or home-made baked goods to your local police or fire department.

Wednesday: Donate used books to your local library or school.

Thursday:  Volunteer an hour or two at a local shelter, school, soup kitchen or charity event.

Friday: Donate clothes, toys, blankets and other daily items to the Goodwill or Salvation Army.

 
 No matter how big or small, your acts of kindness can change lives and create a chain reaction to spread even more generosity throughout your community and the world. Share your acts of kindness and comments with our community on the Everyday Philanthropist Facebook page.
