2. Surprise them with their favorite thing
Often it’s favorite things in life that can restore energy, bring smiles, and uplift the spirits.
It doesn’t have to be extravagant, but a simple thoughtful surprise that you give someone can spread waves of kindness!
Ideas: give their favorite candy or snack, a new supply for their craft hobby, or just send a fun or sweet GIF to bring a smile.
Of course, check for food allergies and stick with what you know they’ll love.
3. Volunteer your time and talents
The world needs more of the special goodness that only you can offer!
So what is it that makes you eager to make a difference in? Explore to find an organization you believe in and get involved.
If you’re around kids, being a role model by practicing kindness can make a huge impact. Check out our Make Waves Kindness Challenge and Smile Jar to get kids inspired:
4. Donate 10 things
Whether it’s clothes that don’t fit or extra mugs, school supplies & blankets, find donation centers and animal shelters that you can drop off things that they’ll benefit from.
It’s a win-win: donating items you don’t need will help you feel less cluttered and will also allow those items to be used by someone who needs them.
5. Be kind to the Earth
You can make a positive impact in making earth-friendly choices too!
Being kind to the Earth is so important, to help preserve its resources, wildlife, and habitats for generations to come. Switching to eco-products and supporting eco-friendly sustainable brands & efforts is a big step that can help restore a much-needed balance.
In fact, we feel so strongly about helping to protect the planet that we’ve opened an online eco-boutique with goods + apparel that are kinder to the environment!
We choose materials like organic cotton and recycled fabrics that are super soft, sustainable + have less harmful eco-impact. We also use water-based inks, non-toxic dyes, and processes that use less water.
When you need new gear or gifts, turn to us or other companies that make sustainability a priority!
We also choose to package our goods with plastic-free, recycled/recyclable, biodegradable packaging. You can learn more about why we’re passionate about it by watching Packaged With Porpoise (Not Plastic):
