60 Acts of Kindness

After a spring winter thaw, a friend and her children noticed trash beneath the melting snow in her neighborhood. Everywhere. On their next daily walk, they brought and filled two trash bags – one with trash, one with recyclables. The next day, they not only filled two trash bags, but they also ran into another family doing the same thing. And on their third walk after the thaw? They saw five more families walking and collecting trash. Each family had seen and been inspired by my friend’s random act of kindness.

Kindness is catching. And it doesn’t have to be some grand gesture. Kindness can be as simple as holding the door open for someone at the grocery store. It can be smiling compassionately at the young mother who is holding a crying toddler. It can be doing your child’s chores after he’s had a particularly tough day.

Be a catalyst for the ripple effect of kindness in your own life. Today I’m sharing sixty ideas to get you started in your own family; start at home and see how far your kindness can go. Read all about them at Natural Parents Network, and share your own ideas, too!
