Random Acts of Kindness Day
6 January 2022
On February 17 let yourself be inspired by Random Acts of Kindness Day to bring joy to the people you come across. The day encourages people to do good deeds, and celebrate the pay it forward mentality. It also reminds us that doing something kind for someone else can have a big impact not only on their day, but also on ours – being kind to others makes us happier, and makes us realize we need to be kinder to ourselves too. An act of kindness doesn’t have to be a big gesture either, sometimes the smallest act can have the biggest impact.
So, on Random Acts of Kindness Day, do kind things for others. It is easy, it is free, and it will put a smile on everyone’s face.
Random Acts of Kindness Day was inspired by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation (RAK), a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 in Denver, Colorado. A few years later, in 2004, a man named Josh de Jong started celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day in New Zealand, and the day quickly grew in popularity and spread across the world.
