Next week kicks off something that I hope will be a contagious and lasting effort in my own life as well as in our community. February 10-16 marks International Random Acts of Kindness Week and encourages us all to seek out ways to make a positive impact in the life of others.
Getting involved does not have to take a lot of time. You can write a thank you note to your child's teacher, compliment a friend, visit a nursing home during your lunch break, look into volunteer opportunities or even buy a coffee for a coworker. You can check out a list of hundreds of ideas of acts of kindness here. The whole idea is to start a movement of kindness by inspiring others around you to pay it forward. Let's take this opportunity to seek out ways to make a positive impact on the lives of everyone around us and to our entire community.
We'll be sharing our experiences on our blog next week and will be offering ideas of ways that you can participate all throughout the week on our Volunteer Center Twitter. Be sure to encourage your colleagues, family and friends to seek out ways that they can spread cheer throughout next week.
