National Random Act of Kindness Day is here and we have 15 of the best acts you can complete by the end of the day. Get started now!
#1: Pay for the person behind you in a drive thru
Not only will this completely make someone's day, but it also will also more than likely start a chain reaction where everyone in the drive thru line starts paying for the person behind them!
#2: Leave money on a vending machine for someone
Think of how you would feel if you walked past a vending machine and saw money taped to it. Make that happen for a random person!
#3: Insert coins into someones expired parking meter
There is absolutely nothing worse than returning to your car and seeing a ticket placed under the windshield wipers. You have the power to prevent this from happening to somebody, place a couple quarters in their meter and know you made that person's week.
#4: Send a letter to a good friend instead of a text
In a world where social media and technology have completely taken over, it will make anyone's day to receive a letter in the mail from a good friend. Make today the day you start doing this regularly.
#5: Leave your waiter a generous tip
Waiters have it hard enough, leave a tip that will make their week.
#6: Offer compliments to strangers
This will makes someone's day for the cost of nothing. You know how great it feels when a random person compliments you, so don't be afraid to do so as well.
#7: Give flowers to strangers
If you want to go the extra mile beyond just giving out compliments, give flowers to strangers as well. This has to be one of the best feelings in the world.
#8: Pick up litter at the beach
We all know how dirty beaches can get, gather up friends and spend an hour cleaning up.
#9: Bring donuts to work
There are few surprises that are better than food surprises! Bring donuts into work today for you and all of your fellow employees to enjoy.
#10: Offer a homeless person your leftovers
It's very common to have leftovers after eating a big meal, hand your food to a homeless person instead of taking it home today. For all you know, that could be the best meal they've had in weeks!
#11: Give someone a book you think they'd like
Make your random act of kindness a little more personal by giving a friend a book you'd think they'd love.
#12: Put sticky notes with positive slogans on mirrors in bathrooms
Who doesn't love walking into a bathroom and seeing words of encouragement plastered all over the bathroom? Be the person that does this for others today!
#13: Send the good morning text
This one is a no-brainer and also costs nothing. Hit send and brighten someone's day!
#14: Make plans with that person you have been putting off seeing
We all get busy and cancel plans, it's inevitable. Make today the day you make time for those people in your life, they will appreciate it and it could be a nice getaway for you!
#15: Smile at strangers
Last but not least, a smile is great for our own souls and all of the souls around us. Get used to doing this regularly.
