JOIN ME! The 2nd Annual 25 Acts of Random Christmas Kindness 2016 – #triKind25

November 29, 2016

It’s that time of year again – time for the 2nd annual 25 Random Acts of Christmas Kindness!!聽

Now, if you’re new to the blog or not sure what I’m talking about… let me explain. If you’re a regular reader, you know exactly what I’m talking about. 馃檪聽

Ever since Lilly was born, I’ve wanted to do something with her that really teaches her early on about the importance of serving and the importance of giving… especially during the holiday season. I don’t ever want this season to be about “me, me, me” – it should always be about serving others!

She was just too young in 2014 to do this, but last year, she was at the perfect age to start this tradition and so as a family, we started the “25 Random Acts of Christmas Kindness” tradition and it took off. At first, I didn’t even want to tell anyone outside our immediate family we were doing this. However, word quickly spread about what we were doing and soon people were begging me to share our daily updates! So, last year, from December 1st – 25th we posted our “Random Act of Kindness” every day on my personal Facebook page.

I had NO idea how much it would inspire people! The idea spread and friends from all over started doing it themselves or with their families or their own kids. It was crazy!! I LOVED it. That’s exactly what the spirit of it was meant to be.

I posted a recap on my blog at the end of the month, and the feedback I got was overwhelming!! (In a good way!!):

Well, this year I am continuing the tradition with both Lilly AND now with Amos, too! BUT… the exciting thing, is this year is going to be even bigger and better than ever!!

I am SUPER pumped to share with you guys that I am partnering with ABC 11 WTVD on this year’s 25 Random Acts of Kindness!! Together, we are hoping to inspire THOUSANDS of people to go out into the community and do random acts of kindness.. because, let’s be honest… our communities need people being kinder to each other more than ever.

So how does it work?

NO!! ANYONE can participate!! My vision is for hundreds of THOUSANDS of people around the COUNTRY (heck, the WORLD!!!) to be out there performing random acts of kindness this December!!!! I want to make this world a better place and I want you to help me!!!!

What if I want to do something different on a particular day?

Do it!!! Don’t feel like you HAVE to do the tasks on the calendar. Come up with your own!! I have a blog post with 366 Random Act of Kindness ideas that you can draw ideas from… Don’t feel locked into the ones I suggested. The whole purpose is to get people out there performing random acts of kindness!!!!!
