It’s always a good time to “try a little kindness,” but this is an especially good time. The 100 Acts of Kindness Project, which can be varied for any age group, lasts from Martin Luther King Day to Valentine’s Day.
If you want to start now, you don’t have to actually do 100 acts of kindness, although it’s possible to do 100 acts of kindness in a day if you really work at it! But the 100 Acts of Kindness Project is a great way to remind yourself to go out of your way to be kind.
Also, Random Acts of Kindness Week through the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is coming up February 13-19. And, of course, February is “heart” month.
The Heart Project is a way you can show kindness and help the American Heart Association this month by donating $5 and receiving a beautiful eBook with 100+ heart-related photographs and projects by over 70 bloggers (including me). (Note: there’s also a printed book for $20 and a way you can simply donate to the AHA.)
