Today Is Random Act Of Kindness Day, March 1

I am reposting this because today is March 1. Hopefully you'll find some way to show a random act of kindness for someone. Remember, the small things in life can be life changing for others. So why not impact the world and let your inner self smile at the same time.

I saw this event for March 1 on Facebook called "Random Act Of Kindness Day" and wanted to help spread the word. It is a wonderful idea and if you go to the facebook page you can read the details. Here are a few of the main points. The idea was created by Brenda Trotier

To help make the world a little brighter and happier, perform one, two, three or more Random Acts of Kindness. Here are the rules:

The first act of kindness should be to a friend, family member or coworker.

The second act of kindness should be to a stranger, and they must know that you are the person to perform the act of kindness (ex: hold the door for the person behind you, treat someone in line near you to a cup of coffee at Starbucks, etc).

The third act of kindness should be made to a stranger, and they must not know the identity of the person who performs it (ex: charitable contribution, pledge, even a few coins in a parking meter).

Please invite as many people to participate as you can; the world needs as much kindness as it can get.

And here is another concept that goes along with this which is a project I've been working on. It is called the Give A Smiley Project. I send out little smileys that you can download from my website and mail out to people you know or don't know. The idea is to help brighten their day a little bit and hopefully changes the world from a gloomy, negative one to one that is a little more hopeful and peaceful.
