How to Get Started

 

Welcome message from Natalie – an introduction to the 22 Days of Kindness Challenge

There are countless ways to be kind to our friends, family, neighbours, coworkers, community and beyond. Yet when we deliberately set out to commit an act of kindness everyday, it can feel daunting. Where to begin? What counts as ‘kindness’? You might feel self-conscious at first, and you might feel uncertain whether or not what you’re doing is meaningful enough. FYI: it definitely is! Even the smallest act of kindness can really brighten someone’s day.

Trust in your intentions of kindness and¬†generosity, and let spontaneous inspiration strike. If you need a few hints, here are some examples of what we’ve done, and stories other people have sent us. Visit us on Facebook, keep checking our home page to see more stories as they come in, and have fun!
