TOP TEN RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS FOR TEENS

  1. Write a thank you note (or text or email) to someone who has helped you out, lifted you up, or inspired you.
  2. Donate your used books to the Children’s Hospital.
  3. Donate clothes that you no longer wear to the homeless.
  4. Hug your Mom at least twice today.
  5. Call your grandparents. Ask them something about their life that you know makes them smile? Let them talk.
  6. If you have younger siblings, offer to babysit so your parents can have a date night.
  7. Sign up to volunteer. There are many volunteer opportunities. My son volunteers at our local stables and we also like to help out Habitat for Humanity. Sometimes we deliver food boxes to the hungry and we volunteer at the library. There is a volunteer opportunity for everyone. Maybe you would like to volunteer to go and spend some time visiting residents at a local nursing home. Animal shelters are also always looking for volunteers to help feed and water the pets, as well as groom them, and walk them.
  8. Leave a surprise in a library book! Whether you write a short inspirational quote on a sticky note or make them a bookmark, these are fun to give and fun to find!
  9. Invite someone to take a walk with you. Whether it be your brother or sister or Mom or Dad or friend or neighbor. Invite someone to get outside and walk with you. Connect.
  10. Bake someone something. Cookies? A cake? Cupcakes? If you don’t bake – how about a no-bake peanut butter pie? And deliver them personally. Even if it means only venturing into the next room.

These are just a few ideas. You can find much more at Random Acts of Kindness. Check out their site here.
