Giving thanks, being kind

The whole idea of stretching Thanksgiving through the entire month and doing special acts of kindness as well, seemed like such a natural pairing.  (Of course as I often say, I'd like to see this daily throughout the year).  Now about those special acts - we've certainly listed a lot, huh?  We can always add more too.  Anything that is done with love and respect, is worthy of that list.

November 18th ideas


Did you think we could really come up with this many kindness ideas?  Well today we have some more!  Make a point of finding the name of a supermarket or drugstore employee and then praise him/her through that company’s corporate office. Share this blog with friends.  Become active in a cause that is important to you.  When drivers try to merge into your lane, let them in with a wave and a smile.

foodstuff

There are a lot of canned food drives at this time of year, so get involved in one.  Donate food or help collect!  If your community has a food bank or a meal program for low income people, volunteers are always appreciated.  Some of us are blessed with food while others go hungry.  Nobody should have to go hungry.  One of the kindest things a person can do is simply sharing their food.

What would you add to our list?

Do we have more kindness ideas?  Of course we do!  Hold a door for someone.  Teach a senior how to text or some other technology they might not be familiar with.  Adopt a pet.  What ideas would you like to add?

Halfway

Well we are halfway through this month, but nowhere near the end of kindness suggestions!  Here are some more.  Volunteer to fix up an elderly couple’s home. Buy a pack of brightly colored stickers and give them to children you meet during the day. Let the person behind you in the grocery store go ahead of you in line. Invite someone new for dinner, either in your home or in a restaurant.

cans

As our month of kindness continues, how about some ideas involving cans?  My grandmother used to keep an empty coffee can to collect and change she might accumulate during the day.  When the can was full, she'd donate it.  At this time of year many people hold can food drives to help out those who may have little or no food.  Recycling is another thing involving cans (and bottles) and you can raise money to do good things.  more ideas?

Lucky thirteen

Don't think of today being unlucky because it's a Monday or because it's the thirteenth.  Think instead that you are a very lucky person, sharing your kindness with others and giving particular emphasis on kindness every single day this month.  Thirteen can indeed be lucky!  As you can see, we have a lot of great ideas too with many more to come!  Oh and today is actually World Kindness Day!  Seriously.  Even more of a reason to be kind.
