Action-A-Day 4/23: Service Sunday

Perform a random act of kindness for someone you know or a stranger.  

Here are some ideas to get you started: 

1. Write positive sticky notes with phrases like "You are awesome." or "Be the reason someone smiles today." and leave them around town, in your workplace, or at school.  Maybe in a library book or on the back of a bathroom stall?  

2. Write a handwritten letter to show your appreciation.  The next time someone does something that you appreciate, let them know with a good old-fashioned card or letter to let them know.  Who doesn't love getting snail mail?

3. The next time you are eating at a restaurant, make an effort to be kind to your server.  Give them a smile and ask how their day is going.  Be understanding if the food doesn't come out as quickly as you'd like.  Remember to tip nicely and maybe include a smiley or uplifting note on the receipt.  

4. Make dinner for someone or cookies or take them a coffee.  For many, food is a language of love.  Show someone you care by giving them some yummy eats.
