The idea for The Kindness Projects came to me when I realized that even though I was creating a ton of Cards, Treat Bags, Boxes, etc. they never got to be used for their intended purposes. Obviously I wasn't going to create a Thank You card & mail it to myself but in a way that's exactly what I was doing.
Creating & hoarding my creations. So this got me thinking & I shared the idea of making "Kindness Projects" at one of my classes & everyone seemed to like the premise. So at the next class we created some projects with the sole purpose of giving them away -Just Because- no birthdays or holidays needed to be coming up for us to share something with a friend, co worker, neighbor, or a complete stranger!
Bake up a batch of cookies to deliver to a senior center or the company next door to yours, give a thank you card to an airline stewardess or hotel staff, leave an embellished gift card for a waitress, make up a few cute candy bags for the staff at your doctors office.
I could go on & on but the bottom line is there are some many ways we can do a little something for those around us!
Don't forget to get your kids involved...
Recently my kids wanted a super ball from one of those quarter machines & after they got it I had them go put more quarters in the machine for the next kid that came along. Its not much but it was probably fun to find that surprise!
Well I hope you are encouraged to start seeking out opportunities to spread some kindness in your community!
There will be a logo print out available & we ask that you add it to your "Kindness Projects".
This way people can find out what we are all about & hopefully be inspired to join us on our mission!
If you have given or received a "Kindness Project" we would love for you to share your stories here or on our Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/thekindnessprojects
