Spread Kindness

Blog written by: Clarissa Mobley – Kentucky Youth Advocates

What do you think of when you hear the word kind? Do you think of a hug? A smile? A person? Merriam Webster defines kind as “of a sympathetic or helpful nature.”

Face It wants to highlight a group of folks who we feel are our definition of kind – our parents, guardians, and caregivers. Show your support for each other by doing something kind for them and spreading kindness throughout your communities. 

 

Check out these fun examples of ways YOU can spread kindness:

  • Deliver groceries or send a care package
  • Words of encouragement via letter, card, call, or text
  • Pick up a gift card from a local restaurant and leave it in their mailbox
  • Order or pay for someone’s favorite meal
  • Make a batch of cookies and take it to them  
  • Mow their yard
  • Help them organize a closet, garage, basement, or an area that they identify
  • Let a parent cut in front of you in the grocery line
  • Drop off sidewalk chalk and bubbles for a fun outdoor playtime activity
  • Create an ‘activity box’ for a family, to include things like art materials, notebooks, chalk, bubbles, cards, activity books, family games, and reading books
  • One activity idea: tell the child they are the author and you are going to type their story, print it out with some pictures that go along with the story, and send the printed version of their ‘published’ work to them.

 

Remember, “no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted”. – Aesop
