8 Ways To Celebrate World Kindness Day

World Kindness Day is Monday, Nov. 13. Celebrate this extraordinary day by spreading a little more kindness in the world. Here are some ideas:

  1. Do an anonymous act of goodwill. You can stick a quarter into a parking meter that is nearing expiration, move a large branch from the center of the sidewalk or pick up and place a fallen grocery store item on its shelf.
  1. Call your child’s teacher to thank them for all they do for your son or daughter.
  2. Volunteer. Take a shift at the local soup kitchen for the day.
  3. Pay it Forward. Tell the person in front of you at the coffee shop that it’s on you today.
  4. Thank a community worker. Have you told your mail carrier how much you appreciate their hard work? Show your appreciation with a warm drink, a homemade pastry or just a sincere thank you.
  5. Call a relative. Pick up the phone and let someone know how much they mean to you.
  6. Donate. How much did you spend on your dinner today? Donate a matching amount to your favorite charity.
  7. Do something special for your family. Remember: Charity begins at home. Have a family game night, bake a special dessert or spend time just listening to a loved one without judgement.
