Valentine's Day is perhaps the pinnacle of being nice and lovey and unusually sweet all year, but hold yer horses, because the week isn't over! In fact, we're right smack dab in the middle of Random Acts of Kindness week! Founded in 1995, the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation's "aim is to help everyone create a better world by spreading awareness and increasing engagement in kind actions." Doesn't that sound nice? And from Feb 13-19, your mission -- if you choose to accept it -- is to commit a random act of kindness every day this week.
If you need some inspiration check out RAK's Kindness Ideas to find suggestions like offering free baby-sitting hours to your parents or simply holding the door open for someone. Just by writing this I'm feeling inspired to be kind! So I'll start with saying to all of you readers: "I think you're cool."
