Acts of Kindness do NOT Need to be Crazy, Big or Original

I always make a party for my daughter’s birthday. This year I felt I should start to teach her about donating to others. We are not the richest people but we are still lucky to have a great life. Not all kids have the same chance as my daughter.

It was almost back to school time, so I decided to ask everybody who came to the party to bring school supplies so that we could give them to elementary kids that are in need.

We raised many items, including over 250 pencils and 100 notebooks!

Everybody was so proud of the collective effort! We now plan to get together for Christmas to make a basket for a family in need.

I wanted to share this story because sometimes we can feel that an act of kindness needs to be crazy, big or original. Well, that’s not the case. All act of kindness are important because they all make a difference.

The picture above is of everything we collected.

I hope this will inspire others to do their own little gestures of kindness. 🙂

Catherine.

  1. That’s so great! I intend to raise my kids the same way. Coming from a family who received such donations at one point, it warms my heart so much to see others have a passion for giving. 🙂
