National Random Acts of Kindness Day

Observed on February 17th...

...National Random Acts of Kindness Day has grown in popularity each year. It is celebrated by individuals, groups and organizations nationwide to encourage acts of kindness. While it always feels good to ‘pay it forward’, this is a great time of year to challenge yourself to spread kindness. Below is a list of 10 acts that are easy and cheap (most are free!). I challenge you to pick at least 1 item from the list or see if you can fit them all into a week!


  • Compliment the first 3 people you see/talk to.
  • Say “Good morning” to strangers.
  • Set an alarm to go off 3 times, drop what you’re doing and call, text, or email just to tell someone they’re awesome or you're thinking of them.   
  • Write a hand-written note to a teacher, mentor, or leader.
  • Pick up litter – spend 10 minutes cleaning up a park or your neighborhood.
  • Place uplifting notes in library books, on a restroom mirror, locker, desk, or computer.
  • Dedicate 24 hours to spreading positivity on social media.
  • Leave a generous tip. 
  • Send flowers to a friend or family member ‘just because’.
  • Make goodies to share with a neighbor, coworker, sitter, teacher, or family member.
