5 Ways to Partcipate in World Kindness Day #WKD

World Kindness Day Is November 13

Did you know that November 13 is World Kindness Day? I didn’t know about it until recently. In a world that sees so much selfishness and cruelty taking a day to celebrate World Kindness Day is a step in the right direction. Not only is it a chance to show Kindness to others, it is a great teaching opportunity for us parents. It is so easy to get lost in the day today. We are always in a rush in our society. We have road rage because we can’t deal with traffic. Drive-thru everything because we in such a rush we can’t stop and get out of our cars. Then there are the smartphones. People are so disconnected today. We can walk right by a person hurting and not even see them.

Pay it forward at the coffee shop

This is an easy one. Just pay it forward. When you order your coffee, let them know you want to buy a coffee for the next customer. It’s a little thing, but I have been the person receiving the bought coffee before, and it made my day. You never know what the person behind you needs, and you could make a real difference.

Leave a kind note for someone

Have you ever found a note or received a random text just because? Again, it is something small, but it is building someone up. A kind word does so much for people. It can lift spirits in the middle of a difficult day, it can inspire someone to do great things. You never know what your kind act can do for someone.

Bake some goodies for a neighbour

Do you have someone on your block that looks down all the time? Maybe someone who doesn’t have family close by? There is a special feeling that comes with receiving something made by hand. It shows you care.

Buy lunch for a coworker

Taking someone out for lunch shows them you appreciate them. Working hard and not feeling appreciated can really affect you. Is there someone who always smiles and says hello to brighten your day? Someone who brings you coffee, or checks how your day is going? Take them out to say thanks!

Donate or Volunteer for your local food bank or shelter

There is always a need in every community. There are people who need help, and if everyone showed a little more compassion and a little less self-focus, a change can be made. Donating your time is not always possible, but even dropping off mittens, socks, and warm clothes this time of year can be the kind act that keeps someone warm all wither long.

It is the little things that make the difference. The little things can put a smile on someone’s face, and that is something you can not put a price on! SO tell me, are you taking part this Kindness Day? Do you have more ideas? Let me know!
