#WorldKindnessDay

Who would imagine Friday the 13th could be so full of hope and love? Leave it to World Kindness Day to transform and breath new light into something generally considered dark. I have posted before about how deeply I feel the importance of teaching kindness to be. Check out that post, Teaching Kindness, full of even more ideas here.

I thought I would take a moment to share our To Do List for Friday and to share some amazing resources so you can make yours.  Here we go…

Our Kindness List

1. Donate clothing and blankets to Haven of Mercy

2. Donate books to our library.

3. Bring single roses to hand out at the local Nursing Home.

4. Bring cookies and milk along with our gratitude to the local fire department.
