Random Acts of Kindness Day 2021


Helen James

Random Acts of Kindness Day is a day to celebrate kindness and to make the world a better place by spreading a little light around and to make kindness a part of our everyday lives. Lift someone up with your words, compliment them on their appearance… even the simplest acts can help to brighten someone’s day.

We’ve collected some activities for you to do today, tomorrow, or every day to spread a little bit of joy.

Activity 1: Thank your mail carriers!

Your mail carriers, post office and delivery drivers have faced a year of unprecedented increase in mail and packages. Did you know every day millions of packages are delivered? Thank them for their hard work by setting out water and granola bars or small snacks that they can take with them.

Activity 2: Random Acts of Kindness

Be sweet and kind to all, every single day. However, on this day be extraordinary. Have fun with it and be creative and safe, it may be something simple or something you can create for someone. When you do your acts of kindness, do them for the pure enjoyment of being kind to someone. 

  1. Do all your chores without being reminded and help your siblings, parents and/or grandparents with their chores.  
  2.  Organize your closet and/or dresser.  
  3. Write a letter to your friend or family member. Become a pen pal. 
  4. Pick up trash (with gloves, and a mask) at the beach. 
  5. Write a thank you letter to your teacher(s). 

Activity 3: Send a care package to a solider overseas

Our armed services protect us every day, whether near or far. Sending a care package is a small gesture to show your thanks and put a smile on someone’s face when they are so far away from home.
