Kindness is Contagious So Share the Love This Week

Kindness is Contagious So Share the Love This Week

In this two-minute read, we look at how a simple
random act of kindness can start a tsunami of positive vibes.

people are going through a dark time right now, but there is a way you could
make at least one person’s day a little brighter.

this week is Random Acts of Kindness Week, why not surprise and delight someone
with a small, generous gesture?

doesn’t have to be a grand affair; even a small effort could leave someone
buzzing for the rest of the day.

don’t forget that kindness is contagious, so your good deed could well inspire
the recipient to follow suit with their own act of goodwill – triggering a wave
of altruism across Kent.

are nine things you could do for Random Acts of Kindness Week.

1) Leave
flowers or a box of chocolates on your neighbour’s doorstep (preferably choose
a neighbour who lives alone or is having a tough time right now).

Sign up to volunteer with a local charity, food bank, or care home.

Send a card to someone you haven’t spoken to for a while. Let them know you’re
thinking of them.

Donate money to a local charity and follow up with an email to the charity’s
head thanking them for their contribution to the community.

Call a friend who you haven’t spoken to for a while. Let them do the talking
while you do the listening.

6) Feeling
generous? If you need to catch public transport for work, leave an envelope
containing a £5/£10/£20 note on the seat when you leave. Write a short message
on the envelope to entice a curious stranger to open it.

7) Surprise
your partner by doing a chore around the house that they usually do.

8) Make
a home-cooked meal and deliver it to a friend, neighbour or family member who
might really appreciate some comfort food.

Support a local business by leaving them a glowing review online. Your positive
words could help them attract customers and boost their sales during this
challenging economic period.

We’ll leave you with this quote from the one and
only Jackie Chan (because we all need a little more Jackie Chan in our lives
right now): “Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring to change a
person’s life.”

all of us here at CWB Property, stay safe and be kind.
