We have talked about the concept of Pay It Forward here at LDM before and have come across numerous websites and Facebook pages like The Angel Zoe Kindness Project and The Lonely Bouquet that practice random acts of kindness. Did you know that there is even a Random Acts of Kindness Day in New Zealand? True! It is celebrated on September 1st.
Well we want to get in on the act and we want you to join us. We believe that everyone deserves a little kindness in their lives, whether it be letting someone into a line ahead of you, making sure that person who gave you awesome service knows about it, or simply making someone smile… just because.
Did you know that smiling not only boosts your mood, but your immune system too? Research has even shown that smiling is contagious, can relieve stress and it is easier to smile than it is to frown. So many GREAT reasons to smile and to get others smiling too.
So join us by printing out our FREE printables and leaving them for people to make them smile. You can download our pre-made cards below and we’d love to hear your suggestions for new cards too!
We’d love for you to keep us in the loop and comment below if you have left a Kindness Card for someone, or even better if you have been the lucky receiver of a Kindness Card. You can also follow along on our dedicated Facebook page.
