Kindness Starts With Us

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m so excited that our kindness challenge starts today. It’s a new month and a new start.  We have the ability to to impact the world over the next 30 days. Let’s think about it. If 10 people do 1 kind deed each day, then after 30 days, 300 acts of kindness will have changed the world. Let’s fill Facebook and the internet with kindness.

I have included a list of ideas for each day but we are not limited to these ideas. The purpose of the list is to assist us in being purposeful about kindness. Remember, kindness starts with us!
