“Random Acts of Kindness Day” is February 17, 2022.
We are more than half way through February already. This means that my birthday is right around the corner. I was trying to think of a fun and unique way to celebrate my 33rd birthday and I came across the idea of performing 33 Random Acts of Kindness. As I started to look into this idea, I discovered that February 17, 2022 is “Random Acts of Kindness Day.” How perfect is that? So, I decided that I would share the 33 Random Acts of Kindness that I plan on doing so that maybe YOU could participate in spreading some kindness as well.
Kindness is Free.
There seems to be so much bad going on in the world right now. Every time I turn on the news, stories of war and violence and illness fill the screen. It is exhausting to be inundated with this type of negativity all the time. Why not carve out at least 1 day to try to spread some love and kindness? I am going to set a budget of $100 to spend on my Random Acts of Kindness. However, you don’t have to spend a dime. Smiling at a stranger is free. Holding a door open for that mom pushing her stroller is free. Telling your cashier at Target that they are doing a great job is free! It as simple as that.
I hope you can find some inspiration here. During my research, I found the Random Acts Of Kindness website which has a treasure trove of ideas. They even have monthly calendars with daily Random Acts of Kindness you can perform. Check out their website here.
Kindness is free, but to be the recipient of kindness feels like a million bucks.

I challenge you to start with a few of these Random Acts of Kindness but don’t stop there. Make kindness a priority. You may change a person’s day with one act of kindness but you could change your whole mindset by focusing your energy on others instead of yourself.
