Random Acts of Kindness
Did you know that February 17th was Random Acts of Kindness Day? This year we are excited to celebrate kindness ourselves, and encourage you to celebrate with us by performing at least one act of kindness by the end of February.
Need ideas? We've got you covered! Below you will see a list of ideas you can do for yourself, your community or workplace, or the environment. All as equally important as the next.
We hope you will take a few moments throughout the next couple weeks and engage in one of these acts of kindness. Together, let's #MakeKindnessTheNorm.
