perform a Random Act of Kindness every day, for an entire year. Can you do it?

Random Acts of Kindness Ideas


I know this idea might seem daunting…but Random Acts of Kindness don’t necessarily need to be a grand gesture or cost a great deal of money.  In fact, here are a dozen free ideas to get you started:

  • smile and say hello to a stranger
  • write a handwritten note to a friend
  • instead of just thinking it, verbally compliment someone
  • ask someone “how are you?” and mean it – and listen.
  • call someone you haven’t talked to in a while and listen.
  • offer someone else your seat on the bus/train
  • visit a senior center or nursing home and talk to the residents
  • say “thank you” to people for the otherwise routine or mundane
  • pick up trash around your neighborhood or workplace
  • leave your favorite book in a public place with a note
  • write a ‘thank you’ letter to your parents
  • don’t lose any opportunity to say “I love you”!

I’d love to hear more ideas, so please feel free to share!
