World Kindness Day

Did you know today is World Kindness Day?

It was started by the World Kindness Movement back in 1998.

Waaaayyy back when I was a newbie blogger, I kinda, sorta inadvertently wrote a series of little posts of suggestions for performing random acts of kindness, inspired by the....wait for it....Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.

You see, I never have been, and probably never will be, someone who is able to be super philanthropic, much to the chagrin of my bleeding heart.

But kindness? Doesn't have to cost a dime. It is something each and every one of us can do to be charitable (which is really only another word for love) to others.

I think I published 19 (stupid odd number) kindness idea posts. Here are the best ones:

Everything from compliments to smiles to doing someone a favor are all acts of kindness.

And each little kindness you show to another person makes a difference.

Even if you don't think it was much, the other person might think it's everything.

One more thing: don't forget to be kind to yourself!

Can you think of something nice to do for someone today?
