World Kindness Day

World Kindness Day

Yesterday was world kindness day.

I love being kind.

Last week at one of the schools that I work at I set up a table for students to come and send kindness to others.

I had cards, quotes, stickers and post-it note the students were able to write on the cards and share kindness. I also had cards that said I caught you being kind.

The kindness table was set up at recess and lunch, it was very popular.

I loved how excited they were about choosing the cards and then encouraging others.

I was encouraged by how they took the time out of their recess and lunch to share kindness.

I love how they were in the moment.

It was so lovely to see them being kind and encouraging others.

Kindness is something that I talk about a lot at one of my schools at assembly.

One of my favourite quotes is-

I love this quote a lot and have it up in my offices at the schools that I am at.

I would love a t-shirt with this quote.

It doesn’t take much to be kind, it really doesn’t.

It doesn’t have to be a monetary thing at all.

Kindness can be-

  • A smile
  • Going out for coffee
  • A kind word
  • An encouraging note
  • Letting someone in line go in front of you
  • Just listen
  • Give your time
  • Volunteer
  • Give a handmade gift
  • Say thank you
  • Blessing someone with a home cooked meal
  • Spending time with someone
  • Pay it forward

I would love to hear from you about how you share kindness.

Let’s throw kindness around like confetti you never know who you are going to be a blessing to.
