The #CaptureKindness Campaign has come to a close. Random Acts of Kindness Week (aka Valentine’s Week) is now over, but the kindness doesn’t need to stop here. Hopefully, after fourteen weeks of pondering, practicing, and capturing kindness, being helpful, respectful, and thoughtful toward the people around you has become part of your routine. Remember: you don’t have to dedicate your life to charity in order to be kind (though you certainly can); sometimes a smile or small gesture is all it takes to make the world a kinder place!
Last week’s challenge was simply to practice random acts of kindness. Last week was also Valentine’s Day with the annual Cheap Candy Day directly following. (It’s okay to be kind and still frugal. Also buying clearance candy keeps it out of a landfill. See? We’re practicing all sorts of kindness here!) So, I made a bunch of little “thank you” cards, attached some sweets and passed them out to people at random! Low cost but high happiness return!
Alright, my friends. That’s it for my #CaptureKindness posts. It’s time to take what you’ve learned and share it with the world. And, in the immortal words of Abraham Lincoln (in Bill & Ted’s imaginings, at least), “Be excellent to each other and party on, dudes.”
