How To Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week
Check Out This Random Acts of Kindness Generator from Shari’s Berries!
We are a family that believes in practicing kindness! This week is something we look forward to. We celebrated World Kindness Day last November 13th and while it was truly amazing (see how we celebrated here) that was also the day of the Paris Terrorist attacks. Heartbreaking! With the ache from that still throbbing, we feel especially determined to spread extra love and kindness this week in a small attempt to honor the victims and also their families that continue to struggle with such loss. We invite you to join us. No matter how small or how great your effort may be, each and every act delivers light to our world which sometimes feels so dark.
I was excited to receive an email from Julissa at Shari’s Berries telling me about this really awesome Random Acts of Kindness tool they had created and wanted to share with us. Yay!
“Random Acts of Kindness Week is coming up on the 14th sharing the stage with love day. To better prepare you, Shari’s Berries has created a random acts of kindness generator to inspire your next good deed. Luckily, there are over 50 acts, enough for the rest of the year!”
Being kind isn’t just awesome, it’s easy. Kind acts and words don’t have to be dramatic to have a dramatic impact, and really brighten someone’s day. Holding the door open. A handwritten note of encouragement. A silly joke to cheer them up. A surprise gift of cookies. Or simply a heartfelt smile.
We are so excited to start spreading the love! I will update at the end of the week so you can see how this wonderful tool inspired us.
Here is how it works:

I posted awhile back about the Science of Kindness and how good it is for you! We covered how Kindness is contagious. Kindness is good for your health. Kindness keeps you young! Kindness matters. Check out the latest news on kindness in these articles from The Huffington Post.
It’s lovely when scientific studies back up what we have always known in our heart of hearts. “Kindness IS its own reward.” We all have experienced the immediate benefits we receive when we offer kindness to another — enriching feelings of connection and emotional intimacy.

Inspiration for Teaching Kid’s Kindness While it’s easy to remember we have to teach Math, Science, English and the rest, it’s even more important that we keep Kindness on the list. Kindness matters. Kindness changes the world, transforms hearts, and inspires us all and it is accomplished in so many ways.

There are a myriad of things the world could benefit from having more of. Kindness is one of them. When you are a kind person, you’re not only helping others, you are helping yourself, too. There’s substantial scientific evidence that being kind makes you — and others around you — happy.
On a side note, I did not receive any compensation for what I am about to say but I have to tell you about my experience with Shari’s Berries real quick. The boys ordered them for me last Mother’s Day and oh my goodness! Seriously the berries were amazing but they also got me these little cheesecakes and they were bliss! So I was already loving this company when I received the email about their kindness generator and well now, they are at the top of my best companies in the world list! Amazing delicious treats and big hearts! What more could you ask for?
