That random act of advertising is being lived out this week as February 9-15 is designated as Random Acts of Kindness Week, aka: #RAKweek2015. The goal is to flood social media with kindness, actually random acts of kindness. Why not start with your friends, right?
Per this article on kindness … researchers have shown that generosity is contagious. Goodness spurs goodness, they found: A single act can influence dozens more.
Let’s try it out – let’s practice acts of random kindness this week (and any week) toward our friends – or even those we don’t even know.
Here’s a few ideas …
* Caffeinated Kindness – It’s very simple, yet can make someone’s day. Pay for the car behind you in the drive through lane. Make their grande with a simple gesture of generosity and kindness.
* Text or Tweet your Kindness – Long distance or local, a tweet or text can make someone’s day. Like in the Coke commercial, a short message can be powerful and something as kind as ‘there’s no one like u’ or ‘you’re beautiful’ or ‘i love u’ or any sweet tweet can make her day.
* Facebook your beautiful Face – with a dear friend and acknowledge her friendship. Share a #TBT (Throwback Thursday) of an old photo with an old friend and remind her of the good times you’ve spent together.
How will you celebrate this week of Random Acts of Kindness? How will you make your friends (and others) feel special, loved, appreciated? Try it. And may the kindness of others make your week too!
