Kindness Week: It's Kewl to be Kind
According to the website,
Kind Ottawa has become a vibrant movement in our community, encouraging people to “choose to be kind”. Kindness Week 2012 takes place from February 17–24.I've written about Kindness Week before as a great opportunity to "use your skillz for good" — use your personal or professional skills to help a friend, a colleague or a stranger.
The idea is that being kind isn't difficult so over the course of the week why not buy a coffee for someone in line behind you, help a friend out with their blog, offer some time to your community association... if you need help with ideas, the site has some to offer:
- Say Thanks
- Celebrate Kindness
- Pay It Forward
