Many thanks to Picture Keeper for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging me to give back this holiday season!
We are in full holiday mode over here! I know it’s early for some (#sorrynotsorry lol) but I love the holidays. Our Christmas tree is going up tomorrow and I’ve already done a few holiday posts here on the blog. I love everything about the holidays from the extra time with family to the holiday decorations to all of the delicious food. I also love how much happier most people seem and how much more giving people tend to be during these next couple months. The season of giving is already here and I believe that doing small random acts of kindness can have a ripple effect. One time I had someone in front of me in the drive-thru pay for my coffee and it put a smile on my face for the rest of the day. Our kindness has a big impact and that’s something I want to show my kids! So today I wanted to share 10 random acts of kindness that families can do together this holiday season (and beyond).
10 random acts of kindness that families can do together:
- Shovel a neighbor’s driveway
- Bake a treat for a new mom
- Make no-sew blankets to donate to a homeless shelter
- Offer to help an elderly person load their groceries into their car or take their cart back into the store for them
- Drop some pet food off at an animal shelter
- Make cards and send them to those serving our country in the military
- Donate canned goods to a food bank
- Hold the door for someone while you smile and say hello
- Make thank you cards and cookies and drop them off at a police station or fire station
- Visit a nursing home to chat with the residents and sing carols
Picture Keeper wants to encourage people to give back this season and they are doing so by offering a great #PKSeasonofGiving giveaway where one person will WIN (2) $250 Visa Gift Cards & Picture Keeper Connect 16GB! Their hope is that the winner will keep one gift card for themselves and use the other to do nice things for others. I love the thought behind this giveaway and am so happy to be partnering with Picture Keeper again because I love supporting companies who do good things.
