National Random Acts of Kindness Day will be celebrated on February 18, 2020.
Gestures of kindness can be anything from making a thank you card for someone, holding the door for a stranger and telling them to have a nice day.
Entrepreneur and dad, Bert Pope, developed Awesome, The Social Network for Kindness, a free mobile application and tool for users to create Kindness Challenges for us all to enjoy and in the app, there are animated Kindness Koins to celebrate others for being and doing Awesome Kindness.
It’s a game – as you share, you receive points and level up, with the ring around your profile getting brighter and changing colors as you level up. Awesome encourages users to share with family and friends their acts of kindness by uploading photos, videos or sharing a message/picture. Here are six easy creative kindness acts Bert has developed for kids:
Help out a friend or neighbor anonymously
Make someone smile with no strings attached —shovel the snow from your neighbor’s sidewalk, or leave a basket of cookies just because, no thanks needed.
Be a baby/dog/cat-sitter– for free.
Many parents (of humans and fur babies) forego taking time out for themselves because sitters’ rates are often expensive. They will certainly appreciate your offer to look after their precious little ones without charge.
Bring out the chalk!
Everybody loves to be appreciated and cheered. On a nice day, surprise someone with a special message using sidewalk art! You may never realize how much it lifts someone’s mood.
Make a Kindness Jar!
Keep track of all acts of kindness with a Kindness Jar. Every time someone in your family does a random act of kindness, write it on a piece of paper with their name and put it in the jar. When it’s full, sort through it to see who was the kindest. Then, that person can pick an act of kindness that everyone else should do!
Celebrate a friend for being Awesome
For older kids, text/ message friends and let them know they are special with a fun silly gif video or go to www.GiveAnAwesome.com and celebrate a person for being and doing something Awesome.
Create a Kindness Challenge from the Awesome app
Using the Kindness template, upload a photo or video clip, adding a title for your Kindness Challenge, then, put a short description. It will be available to thousands of users on Awesome. You are also able to share it on any of your other social channels. When your friends and others join in the Kindness Challenge inside of the Awesome app, they get points and can level up and up the more kindness challenges they do.
