Project Kindness

Project Kindness


Kindness is important.  It spreads joy, hope, and love to those around us.  Kindness keeps the world going.  It constantly reminds me of the love for one another and humanity.  It is the core of human existence and it is what makes me want to wake up each day.  To be able to give back to others, motivate others, inspire others, mentor others, and make others smile.

I challenged myself on my 28th birthday to do twenty eight random acts of kindness.  That’s how old I turned.  I will continue to fulfill this goal each year.  I wanted to do something new and different.  Something that wasn’t about me.  Something that shared with those around me.  It was about giving back and personal growth.  I wanted to pursue something bigger than myself on my birthday.  Something that reminded me that I live in a country with so many opportunities.  Endless opportunities to spread kindness.  I focused on random acts of kindness not to my friends or family – but kindness that I spread out into the world.  It may be to the random waitress that serves me lunch, the man standing on the street corner, the teacher that needs extra support, the little girl that needs gloves, or the veterans returning from war.  Some of my random acts of kindness range from simple to complex and small to large.  A simple thank you card or a donation to a family in need.  Kindness in ways where I don’t get something in return.  After all, I didn’t want it to be about me.  I wanted it to be about the receiver – making them smile.  Something to make them feel warm and fuzzy inside.  These random acts of kindness could be to firefighters, police officers, nurses, teachers, the homeless person sitting on the curb, the person in front of you in the Starbucks line, the couple eating dinner at a local restaurant, or anyone you want to make smile.  Because when you do the right thing good stuff has a way of happening.

I challenge you to join me on my Project Kindness journey by pledging to make your birthday about spreading kindness!  Use #ProjectKindnessBook to join the conversation with me on social media!  Together, we can make a difference in the lives of others! #BeKind #GiveBack #HelpOthers
