Dear Leah,

Wishing you a wonderful Valentine’s Day and hopefully a really good LOVEKINDNESS event.

Talk about going above and beyond! I’d ordered some tea from my favourite tea shop, Steam Tea House (https://steamteahouse.com) and after a few days it had not shown up. Very unusual for the Steam Dream Team. So I pinged them just to ask if there had been some mix up with my order. Not only did the owner reach out to explain the situation to me by phone and email, she also showed up at my door on a Saturday morning to hand deliver my order. Amazing! These folks are wonderful. #KindnessIsGoodForBusiness

‘Miss I got it just for you’ handed to me by a child with a beaming smile when I opened the gate to welcome the children into class. Certainly brought a smile to my face and made me feel like I am having an impact. #randomactsofkindness

Wonderful #randomactsofkindness outside Stringer House, LS10 2QW today, a lampost full of crochet worry worms 🙂 how lovely

In teaching a course in Nonprofit Management and Fundraising, I mentioned casually the impact of a course on Bonhoeffer and King. Months later, a student from Notre Dame (EMNA Program) sent me an autographed book and a personal note that let me know that my class mattered. The gift arrived on a particularly difficult day. I am blessed because of this kindness. #gratitude

There is a new mural in Okotoks, Alberta celebrating kindness in their community. Read the full story here:

Erica Spencer, one of the young artists working on the mural, had a good quote for them to base their work on: “Given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”

I paint rocks and hide them around town to spread kindness and joy!

Our Grade One Students came up with a months worth of Random Acts of Kindness that the school community could do at home and school during the pandemic. Share Kindness everyday!

Every time I go thru a drive thru, I always pay for the car behind me. I have been doing this for many years, even when I travel. I love giving with my whole heart to a total stranger! It’s one of the best feelings in the world! I like to think I made their day just a little bit better!

Our New Year’s resolution was to ‘be kind’ after we were gifted £5 from a man the other weekend for litter picking we decided we wanted to do 12 random acts of kindness this year – 1 every month.
January’s random act of kindness – we used the £5 we were gifted and with the help of our local bakery we gave 5 random customers a yummy treat we hope they can keep this kindness going and do their own RAOK to help make people smile.
