Kindness Week

I came across this in another blog and thought it would be a great opportunity to share with everyone. This week is 'Kindness Week' in Ottawa. The idea is to perform random acts of kindness to those around you. Now, this does not really include the daily things you do for your family - making lunches, spending time with your kids etc. This week is to really think about things that you can do for friends, employees, or even complete strangers. As simple as holding a door open or complimenting someone can really turn another's day around. Or as generous as making a donation of food or toys or even buying a coffee for the person in line behind you. Just taking a moment out of our busy lives to think about those around you can really impact another's life and, in turn, hopefully they will pass on the gesture. I would love to hear more ideas on simple acts that can be done. Good luck!
