A Time for Random Acts of Kindness

A Time for Random Acts of Kindness

Did you know that November 13th is World Kindness Day? With the swirl of emotions stirred up by last week’s election, there’s never been a better time to spread some compassion through random acts of good in your community.

We’re feeling inspired to stretch this celebration through the end of the month and hope you’ll do the same. To help inspire you to get started, we’ve put together a few fun ways to brighten someone else’s day (and maybe yours too) with some simple smile-worthy moves.

world_kindness_day_2016

  • Spread the love with sticky notes. Take some post-it notes and write some sweet messages or affirmations on them. Stick them in public bathrooms at school, on your mirror, or hide them around the house for instant good vibes.
  • Write a note of gratitude. A simple heartfelt letter to someone you appreciate can make a big impact. Take the time on your own or check out our next DIY Designs program (during Teen Study Hall) on Tuesday, November 21st, 4 – 6 p.m. at the Valencia Library where we’ll have card making supplies ready for you.
  • Volunteer your time. Spend some time helping at a soup kitchen, a homeless shelter, or your local library (we’d love to have you!). So many people could use a helping hand – so if you have even an hour to offer, why not spread the kindness and try out volunteering.
  • Make a donation to Goodwill. We all have clothes or toys that we’ve outgrown, just don’t wear or don’t have room for anymore. Talk to your parents about taking some time to look around and donate what you don’t need to a charity store like Goodwill or the Salvation Army, so that your unwanted treasures can brighten the days of people in need.
  • Smile at 10 strangers. If you’re in the right headspace to smile (and it’s okay if you’re not at the moment), you might want to give this one a try.  Next time you’re going down the street, make an effort to beam out a genuine smile at 10 strangers you pass.

If you have more suggestions for ways to spread kindness during this month, talk to your teen librarian. We’re here to listen and support you!
