It is not a coincidence that we chose to introduce our brand new Be Kind & Co. merchandise line the week that is set aside to celebrate random acts of kindness. We are also officially launching on Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is Wednesday, February 17th.
The day was first created in 1995 by a non-profit organization, the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation based in Denver, Colorado. The idea behind the holiday is to make the world a better place by spreading a little light around and to make kindness a part of our everyday lives.
You may be asking yourself, “But how do I all start being kinder all of a sudden?” We say “Thanks for asking!”
To help you out, we have gathered some of our favorite articles, books, merchandise, news clips, calendars, tools for teachers, and even a list of 100 ways to be kind to get you started. Now go be KIND! xoxo
