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.
