27 Acts of Kindness

11:59 AM

I've been very depressed since last Friday. The news of what happened in Newtown, CT has left me very sad. I can't imagine what the families of the victims are dealing with. The fear the victims must have faced brings tears to my eyes. In honor of all of those victims my husband and I are going to be participating in 27 Random Acts of Kindness (note: many people are participating in 26 random acts of kindness, I am included the shooter's mother as a victim). 


Here are some ideas I've come up with so far..
1. Put candy on someone's windshield.
2. Buy $5 gift cards to Dunkin Donuts and hand them out.
3. Leave exact change for the wash in the laundromat.
4. Put together bags of necessities for homeless people we come across. 
(hand warmers, socks, water, protein bars, food)
5. Put quarters in candy machines.
6. Give a waiter/waitress a very generous tip.
7. Pay the toll for the person behind us.
8. Donate to Sandy Hook Elementary School Victims Relief Fund.
9.  Leave a nice note on a stranger's car.
10. Compliment a stranger.


I am posting this to encourage you all to do something for a random person today.

If you have any ideas for random acts of kindness please post them below.

  2. I've been following this on your Instagram and I love it! It's so beautiful and very inspiring. My students and I made paper snowflakes yesterday to send the Sandy Hook PTA to decorate their school and I'm going to take some inspiration from you and try to perform some good deeds as well. Thank you for being you doll!

  3. So heartbreaking. Those children were so young! I cry every single time I read an article about what happened.
    I love this and the fact that you and your husband are doing this!
    I always pay for the person behind me at Starbucks and ask them to pay it forward. It's small...but I know it makes their day. :)
    Also...love your blog. :) I've read your blog for years and I just made one myself so I finally decided to comment.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
