Acts Of Kindness Families Can Do Around The Holiday Season

Religious or not, the “holidays season” starting at the end of November and ending mid-January is one of the most apt time for random or planned acts of kindness. The religious celebrations (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, Epiphany/Three Kings Day, etc.) are all centered around the light overcoming the darkness, divine love, and/or gratefulness. So it’s rather fitting for people to see what can be done to help ease the burden of others.

Multicultural Kid Blogs’ members have gathered ideas about acts of kindness families can do around the holiday season, and these ideas can help to inspire other families to serve during the holidays. [Read Article]

Title: Do Nice, Be Kind, Spread Happy: Acts of Kindness for Kids (preview the book)
By: Bernadette Russell
Ages: Families of All Ages

Why?  " "Niceness ninjas and happiness heroes, unite! This book is jam packed with awesome activities for spreading joy and kindness throughout the land, with an extra helping of magic and mischief. Are you sneaky enough to pull off a reverse robbery, by sliding a treat into someones bag or pocket? Have you got the guts to undertake a serious smile collection mission, and smile at every stranger you see all day long? Or perhaps you could brighten up a friends day with a Happy Un-birthday card... after all, the Queen of England gets two birthdays, so why shouldnt anyone else? Evidence shows that kids (and adults!) who act kindly are happier and more popular, proving that it really is nice to be nice. The international Random Acts of Kindness movement is going from strength to strength, including running workshops in schools. Its official, kindness is cool." -- Amazon Review
