Story in 5 Pictures and Random Acts of Kindness

 

We are pawticipating in Wordless Wednesday at Comedy Plus. Click the button to be magically taken to Comedy Plus site!

 
 

Today is also Random Acts of Kindness Day!


Random Acts of Kindness Day is a day to celebrate and encourage random acts of kindness. "It's just a day to celebrate kindness and the whole pay it forward mentality", said Tracy Van Kalsbeek, executive director of the Stratford Perth Community Foundation, in 2016, where the day is celebrated on November 4. It is celebrated on September 1 in New Zealand and on February 17 in the US. 
The earliest call for people to Practice Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty appeared in the July 1985 issue of the countercultural journal “Whole Earth Review”. The California-based writer Anne Herbert penned an article titled “Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty”. Herbert's book Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty was published in February 1993 speaking about true stories of acts of kindness. 
Our Mom has been practising RACSAB since she read the book back in 1994 for some courses she was running. We believe that helping others, paying it forward and gratitude are all important for our life. One of our favorite sites to visit is the Random Acts of Kindness. If you want to get inspired, learn more about cultivating kindness, become a Ractivitst, or read the Kind blog, it's all on the Random Acts of Kindness site
Mom particularly likes their Calendars (that way she just has to look at the calendar to see what would be a kind thing to do that day.

  2. Kindness is what the whole world needs a ton of right now...wait, maybe millions of tons!

    Sometimes I buy things, unasked and then give them to the residents I look after. I hardly ever tell anyone I am doing that, but some of those peeps have lots of nothing. Esp now that they are not even allowed visitors, Sheesh.

    What really hurt my soul, was I had bought a few things for one particular lady, for a Christmas gift...but she passed away due to the evil virus only two weeks before...so my gift was not given/received:(
    I saved it to gift someone else with when I discover the next lady who likes to have pretty hair things:)
    I gave that selfsame lady a bit of home-made jewelry when she lost a necklace...she was so happy, it just warmed my soul.

  10. Nice five photos. You kitties outside look quite chilly. Cat bro Bert won't even try to run away in the winter because he doesn't like the cold. We love kindness, hopefully the world can find more of it.

  17. Love the collage. Nothing better than kitties. Nothing. Okay maybe puppies.

    Kindness is something we need to dole out 365 days a year. I try hard to do that.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches all around and a big hug and lots of love to the mom. ♥

  26. That's a great story graphic.

    And yes, it is so important to be kind and thoughtful. Our next door neighbor has terminal brain cancer. Mom has been bringing a meal over to the family and baking some sweets to try to help out.

    Our human sister has a nonprofit organization that is geared for children and helps them find ways to be "kind". It is called Kindcraft.

    Have a great day.
