February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day, and we can’t wait to participate. If you want to be a part of this day, but you’re not so sure what you can do, we’re here to help. Here are 10 easy ways to be kind on February 17th, or any day of the year!

  1. Simply hold open a door for someone
    It’s easy, and kind!
  1. Put your spare change into a random vending machine
    You never know who’s going to come alone extremely hungry, and extremely grateful
  2. Pay for someone’s coffee
    When you’re paying for your coffee, pay for the person behind you, too! Hopefully that person will keep the kindness going, and you’ll create an act of kindness train.
  1. Tell someone a joke
    Making someone laugh will bring joy to you, and to them.
  1. Pick up trash
    If you happen to see trash on the ground, pick it up! It’s important for us to be kind to the earth, too.
  1. Give someone a compliment
    Everyone wants to feel good about themselves, and today is the perfect day to boost someone’s confidence!
  1. SMILE
    It’s contagious!
  2. Leave pennies on the ground
    Heads up, of course! Everyone loves a little bit of good luck.
  3. Offer up a hug
    A Big ol’ bear hug could really help someone out.
  4. Donate to Spirit of Children
    Help make hospitals less scary by donating to Spirit of Children!
