Encouraging Random Acts of Kindness
| February 5, 2019
As children develop, they slowly transition from a “me” mindset to a “we” mindset. This can sometimes be a challenge for young minds. Showing a young person how rewarding community service is can be the beginning of a lifetime of giving back and helping others.
Encouraging random acts of kindness can be a great way to share the beauty of service. Receiving a random act of kindness feels good, but sharing one is even better! Challenge a young person in your life to make an impact in their community. What need could be filled? Who do they know that could use a helping hand? Work with them and their friends to create a plan to surprise someone who could use a boost and an extra dose of kindness!
