Updated January 1, 2018
I was so inspired by the overwhelming response to my Random Acts of Kindness Christmas Calendar for Kids, that I’ve decided to make it easy to spread kindness all year long. So, I’m going to create a new calendar each month, starting with this January Acts of Kindness Calendar.
Don’t worry. January isn’t going to be a rehash of December’s calendar. Instead, each month I’m going to include acts of kindness related to that month’s theme.
For example, January is National Blood Donor Month so one of the acts will be to give blood. January is also National Soup Month so you’ll find a suggestion to bring hot soup to someone who is under the weather.
I’m also going to have some fun with unique holidays. Did you know that January 21 is National Hugging Day? What better day to spread a little joy and kindness by giving someone a hug?
Not every act will tie in with a specific theme so you will find some familiar suggestions. Remember, everything on the calendar is just a suggestion. The very fact that you are reading this post indicates that you are a kindhearted person. Instead of viewing the calendar as a daily to-do list, let it serve as a gentle reminder to spread joy to others.
