The week of February 13 – 19 is celebrated as Random Acts of Kindness week. From paying for food for the car behind you in thefast food drive through to shoveling snow from someone’s driveway, to making a favorite dessert for someone unexpectedly are just examples of how people share Random Acts of Kindness every day. It is important to carry out your acts of kindness withoutexpecting anything in return.
It truly can be a win/win/win situation. The person you are being kind to benefits through your help. You feel good for having helped someone. And the world is a better place through your kindness.
In celebration of Random Acts of Kindness week, February 13 – 19, Ohio State University Extension Live Healthy, Live Well Blog, will be awarding a $25 gift card to a random participant for sharing a Random Act of Kindness they have performed or been a recipient of. Submit your stories to email@example.com with Random Acts of Kindness in the subject line of your email and your story in the body of the email.
All participants must be a resident of the United States, 18 years of age or older with a valid email address. All participants agree to the publication of their name and story with other followers of our Live Healthy, Live Well Blog site. Winner will be notified via email on Monday, February 20th prior to publication of their Random Acts of Kindness story.
Let’s make “Kindness” contagious by sharing random acts of kindness on a daily basis.
