100 Acts of Kindness Project

It’s International Random Acts of Kindness Week! Not only that but the 100 Acts of Kindness focus this week is on doing kindness around the world. I published a post before on the importance of being kind online. This is definitely a great week to make an extra effort to always be kind online. Here’s a new “Be Kind Online” word art freebie: To download word art (without watermark), click here, then right click on the image and choose “Save Picture As . . .” Here’s a “Be Kind

This is the second week of the 2014 100 Acts of Kindness Project hosted by Kristina from Toddler Approved and Megan from Coffee Cups and Crayons. This week, the focus is on spreading kindness in our communities. My family’s 100 Acts of Kindness Project fits perfectly with this week’s focus. My kids, kids-in-law, and I are focusing throughout the challenge on being extra kind to everyone we meet in our daily life. My daughter, Christina, and I have an added focus of spreading positive body-image messages through Operation Beautiful.

If you saw my post last week, you know that my daughter and I are combining Operation Beautiful and 100 Acts of Kindness Project. We’re spreading kindness and trying to help change females’ negative body-image messages to positive body-image messages. Blogger and author Caitlin Boyle’s Operation Beautiful book site says this about the start of Operation Beautiful: “Tired of watching women pick themselves apart in front of the mirror, blogger Caitlin Boyle scribbled a note on a Post-it: “YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!” and slapped it on the mirror of a

This is the third year of the 100 Acts of Kindness Project through Toddler Approved! The project starts each year on Martin Luther King Day and ends on Valentine’s Day. You can start at any time, though. And the 100 Acts of Kindness Project isn’t just for parents with young children. My family has participated on some level each year, and my kids are adults now. The world needs some extra kindness, and this project is a wonderful reminder to be kinder to the people and world around us.

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

I’ve had kindness on my mind a lot lately. In honor of Project Smile and the concepts of random kindness and senseless acts of beauty, my family and I have been participating in the 100 Acts of Kindness Project between Martin Luther King Day and Valentine’s Day. If you’d like to participate (and it works with any age group or entire families), it’s not too late to start. You can do 100 acts of kindness in a shorter period (like the amazingly moving post by Robyn, who with her family completed
