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.

Get the year off to a joyous start with this January Acts of Kindness Calendar. Many of the kindness acts are tied to the month's theme and unique January holidays. #printables #freeprintables #actsofkindness #RAKprintables #randomactsofkindness #RAKCalendar

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.

January Acts of Kindness Calendar Themes

This month I drew my inspiration from the following monthly themes:

  • National Blood Donor Month
  • National Hobby Month
  • Hot Tea Month
  • National Oatmeal Month
  • National Soup Month

And also from these unique January holidays:

  • January 4 – National Spaghetti Day
  • January 5 – National Bird Day
  • January 10 – Houseplant Appreciation Day
  • January 19 – National Popcorn Day
  • January 21 – National Hugging Day
  • January 23 – National Pie Day
  • January 24 – Compliment Day
  • January 29 – National Puzzle Day
  • January 31 – Inspire Your Heart with Art Day

  1. I love this idea! And how you included Christmas with blank calendar to fill in as well as cut and paste squares to draw at random:)! We are looking forward to trying it out this year! Does your 2019 bundle have the blank versions for each month as well? (dated calendar with no acts, and acts with no dates?) thanks!

    • The bundle does NOT have the blank versions…yet. I don’t know why that didn’t occur to me before! Adding it to my to-do list for this week. That’s a great idea. Thank you!

  2. This calendar is wonderful! It makes you feel good just looking at it and realizing all the easy ways to spread kindness. Thank you for posting it, and I look forward to future months postings from you! 🙂

      • Thank you! I appreciate the time, creativity, and thoughtfulness you put into each date. Today was the perfect day to find your calendar and start this with a very easy task … say good morning to everyone! Have a great day. 🙂

  3. I love your Random Acts of Kindness calendars! It is such a great idea to get children involved in philanthropy at an early age. Thanks for this amazing list!!
