Donate Books to a Mini-Library
Do you have a mini library in your neighborhood, nearby park or school? If so, clean out your bookshelves and donate some books…and while you’re there borrow a few new ones to discover some new favorite stories and authors.
Create bookmarks and donate to local organizations
A new bookmark is always a special treat when starting a new book…if you’re interested in crafting, bookmarks are a lovely donation to local assisted living centers for their residents. Here are some creative ideas to get started.
Learning Empathy through Service
Empathy is the pebble from which ripples of kindness and goodness grow. When you genuinely connect with others through community service, you develop a sense of responsibility toward their well-being. This sense of responsibility extends beyond service hours; it becomes a fundamental aspect of your character. Acts of kindness, compassion, and understanding become second nature, and you start making choices that positively impact both individuals and the community at large.
August Kindness Calendar
Get into the habit of spreading everyday kindness by printing out our calendar and sharing it with your family to choose 1, 2, or all of the days to start a ripple of kindness.
