A March of Kindness

Think about the ripple effect your 31 acts of kindness can have . . . what if 100 of us did 31 acts? 1000 of us?

Who couldn’t use more kindness in their life? I know I could! But sometimes what’s even better is to spread some of that kindness to others. I missed the official “Random Acts of Kindness” week but that doesn’t matter, because I’m going to fill a whole month with kindness, and I want you to join me!

It’s easy (and free) to participate: for each day in the month of March, you perform one random act of kindness.

Your act of kindness can be big or small, it can be anonymous or public, you can spend money or you can give freely of your time or creativity.

Give kindness to your child, your partner, your neighbor, your friend, a stranger, a clerk, a blogger, a bus driver, a parent.

One little act, every day.

It can be as simple as picking up the phone and telling your mom you miss her. Or holding the door for someone at the grocery store. You can send an anonymous note to your church pianist, letting her know how much you appreciate her music. You can leave an encouraging comment on a new blogger’s post.

You don’t need to plan or fuss or worry or look for the “perfect” things to do. Just be kind! That’s it.

Of course I want to hear about it:

  • If you are a blogger, will you please blog about the March of Kindness? I’d love for you to post about it in the next few days so we can have even more people join us. But I’d also like you to post at the end of the month. Share your story about your own acts of kindness, how they touched other people, and how you were changed in the process.
  • If you do not have your own blog, you can share your story on Facebook – just write a note and share it with your friends (and with me!). You can also submit your stories of your March of Kindness for me to run as guest posts here on Code Name: Mama.
  • And every day in March, please share your acts of kindness with me, here and/or on Facebook.

Grab the badge and encourage everyone to March for Kindness.

    I’m here , thanks to Suchada @mamaevetweets. A little late, but I wanted to thank you. Such a lovely, soul nourishing idea: just reading your list of 155 ideas for acts of kindness made me smile. I printed the list to remind me to consciously choose “One little act, every day,” starting today. Thank you again.
