I’m *sharing* these Share Kindness Ideas to inspire you to take the next 12 days of holiday season and do good. From donating warm clothes to a shelter to getting groceries for a neighbour – there are many kind things you can do which do cost a penny – but mean so much!
Share Kindness Ideas
- Make a food bank donation (with so many out-of-work due to the pandemic – food banks are in great need!)
- Check-in on a friend (text, message, call, knock on their door and stay 2 meters apart — your checking in isn’t being intrusive – it’s showing you care).
- Donate warm clothes to a charity (you know all those hats, mittens, coats, boots you and your family might have grown out of?! give it all a second life for someone who could use it this winter)
- Get groceries for a senior (yes, because of the pandemic. Also, because ice and snow can be slip-and-falls for seniors. Further, hauling groceries isn’t what seniors need to be doing this week).
- Shovel snow for neighbours (you are already out and shoveling your own sidewalk…take a few minutes and shovel your neighbours too. Side note: one year I was out shoveling the snow with young kids (seriously, I think I had a baby in a carrier on my back)…my husband was away…and it was brutal. A neighbour came over with his snow blower and took over. It was the kindest thing!)
- Donate gently used books to a little free library. Novels, cook books, self help, comic books, graphic novels, picture books are the most popular at my Little Free Library. Here is a link to the Little Free Library World Map so you can find one close to you.
