For Everyone

When carrying out your acts of kindness here are a few extra tips from Dani…

 

    • When giving a stranger something
      A great way of approaching them is: “Excuse me, sorry to stop you but I’m doing an act of kindness each day and I’d love to give you {XXXX}.It would really help me if you’d accept it. Thanks so much”

 

    • When stopping by a homeless person
      “Hi, I’m just popping into this shop and I’d love to get you something, Is there anything particular I can get ?”

 

    • Leaving a good wishes note (washrooms, carparks, on doors and mirrors etc)
      “I’m leaving this note to wish you a lovely day / journey / holiday / week. Keep smiling! #inspirekindness”
      “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. #inspirekindness”
      Collect short quotes you find in books of  the internet to leave on cards

 

    • Sending a note to friends and loved ones
      “I’m doing 21 days of kindness and as part of this I’ve been thinking about important people in my life, you are one of those people. I wanted to say that I admire / love / respect / enjoy….{insert details]”

 

    • Keep your Inspire Kindness Kit with you at all times, opportunities appear in the strangest places and times!

 

    • Kindness takes courage and for you to be vulnerable – remember people aren’t used to others being kind and may not know how to react! That’s ok, remember “give without exception or expectation”

 

    • You don’t need to like someone to be kind to them or appreciate them or what they do. Send a note to acknowledge their work, resilience, challenge etc anyway – you never know what that might do!

 

    • Build a tree of kindness at work / school / home and hang kindness note on it or stick leaves on it with lovely notes to people.

     

    • Begin a Kindness Award at work / school – celebrate and recognise outstanding kindness. Make it a real occasion and something to encourage everyone to get involved with. You can even appoint a CKO! (Chief Kindness Officer)
