Every year in December my husband and I make it a point to take our kids with us as we do our daily errands and activities and we do acts of service for others as many times as we can fit it in. (We do this throughout the year too, but we seem to drill it in their heads in December!) A few of the simple Random Acts of Kindess we did this December were…
1.Helping to address and mail Christmas cards for a neighbor in need.
3. Buying a few dozen donuts for our local fire stations along with saying “thank you” for their service to our community. (As a bonus the kids got a tour of the fire station and were thanked for their good deed by getting to try on the fireman’s very heavy gear!)
4. Buying a stack of Starbucks gift cards and handing them out to people we met while we ran our errands.
4. I found these great “JOY” Christmas ornaments and stocked up big time on them. I thought they were so pretty, all glittery and all, how can they not make you happy? We placed them on mailboxes, car windshields, trees outside of stores, you name it! It was fun to give our community a bit of sparkle!
