365 Random Acts of Kindness


365 Random Acts of Kindness
This weekend, the kids and I sat down and talked about what happened Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary. While they wanted to do something for the families of the children, I wanted this lesson in kindness to last for more than just the time it would take to write a letter or send a donation. We discussed Random Acts of Kindness and the kids decided that they wanted to do 365 Random Acts of Kindness next year, one for each day. While there are the #20Acts and #26Acts that Ann Curry of NBC News initiated. While this is a great way to remember the lives that were lost on December 14th, I want my children to remember that we should be kind throughout the year, not just when tragedy happens. So with that in mind, here is our partial list of 365 Random Acts of Kindness. Please feel free to add your ideas in a comment, just remember the kids are young, under 12 and would like to do most things with very little or no help from us adults (though I am "allowed" to drive them around)!

365 Random Acts of Kindness


1: Donate to your local food bank (we do this once a month, so adding an extra donation)
2: Hold the door open for someone (the kids do this daily)
3: Send a Thank You card to your local Police Department
4: Send a Thank You card to your local Fire Department
5: Put someone’s cart away at the store

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from Disney/Pixar's MONSTERS, INC. 3D!!!
