Kids for Kindness – A Year of Family-Centered Random Acts of Kindess

Join the #kidsforkindness challenge as we do one kid-friendly random act of kindess for 2013!
Kids for Kindness - A Year of Family-Centered Random Acts of Kindess

Well, it’s officially 2013! I love how a new year gives us a fresh start, a blank slate. For me, it’s a time to reflect on goals I have for myself and my family and be purposeful about how to get there. It’s about cleaning and organizing not only our house, but our minds and our lives.

So, I am so excited to be joining with Tutus & Tea Parties to pledge to do our best as a family to do one random act of kindness every week for a year. Wow, that’s quite a commitment, isn’t it? It’s easy to stick to it at the beginning, but continuing will be hard. But that’s why we’re doing this together – accountability is powerful and we can help each other reach our goal.

I challenge you, as a family, to join with us to do a random act of kindness for each week of 2013. Tutus & Tea Parties will post a kid-friendly prompt for us to do each Friday. She will be sharing her experience the following week with a new prompt for us.

You don’t have to commit to the whole year to participate – the whole point is to inspire kindness, to think about others and to teach our children to do the same, so anything along those lines counts. Kindness is contagious…so please, catch it and pass it on! If you aren’t a blogger, you can join in the conversation on my Facebook page or Google + Page where each week I’ll give you the opportunity to share your experience with the week’s challenge. You can also leave comments with your experiences whenever I write a post about Kids for Kindness (which might not be every week).

For bloggers, Tutus & Tea Parties will have a blog hop for you to share your Kids for Kindness posts. If you’re in, please grab the button and hop on over to Tutus & Tea Parties for the first Kids for Kindness RAK (Random Act of Kindness).

 *You do not need to have a blog or post about it weekly to participate. It’s just to inspire each other if you can.*

  1. I love, love, love this idea! My girls are now teens, but we will certainly join in. Of course, we try to regularly incorporate this in our lives, but the weekly reminder is terrific! I catch K-LOVE radio online occasionally and they will have people call in with their RAK’s that day. It is such a joy to hear the giver giggling about just paying for the car behind them in the drive-thru, or at the toll booth. Simple things like that have everyone smiling. Also, if you are a scrapper, or creative type, Rita Barakat’s blog called Let’s Embellish has a RAK giveaway on the 10th and 20th of each month, where she gives away some of her left-over supplies that she has been given over the years from different companies that she has been a designer for, (she can only use current supplies in her projects). I was the lucky recipient of her 2nd give-away many months ago and received a priority mail package stuffed with papers and different embellishments and supplies as well as an original piece of artwork signed by Rita herself! What a lovely lady.

  2. hey,
    I missed the other weeks of RAK i would like to catch up, is there a website I can look at to see what the other two weeks were.

  3. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an very long comment but after

  22. At this time it seems like WordPress is the best blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
