Celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week from February 11 – 18, 2018

RAK2018An act of kindness is a spontaneous gesture of goodwill towards someone or something – our fellow humans, the animal kingdom, and the kingdom of nature. Kind words and deeds come from a state of benevolence, generated by a core response deep within all of us. The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.” This means one good deed in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day of dozens of people! This year, the Random Acts of Kindness Day that typically takes place on November 3, expands to eight days, from Sunday, February 11 to Sunday, February, 2018. How can you impact yourself and the world with your random acts of kindness?
