This is one of my favorite weeks of the whole year. It’s not because of what went on yesterday with the cards and flowers and chocolates and romantic dinners out. I like all that stuff, but the reason this is such a great week is that it’s Random Acts of Kindness Week.
I’m not sure how this week ever got started, but I’ve became a fan the minute I heard of it. Basically, it’s a whole week where people do random acts of kindness. If this sounds like fun to you, but you need a little help coming up with ideas, there’s help. Randomactsofkindness.org has a list of ways to participate. It can be as simple as opening a door for a stranger or, for those with a strong back, helping someone with yard work.
