Acts of Kindness

A couple months ago on this exact day, the 10th, someone had left an anonymous "nice little note" on my car.  The day I received that note I decided that every 10th of every month I would share the same light that I received.  Of course, I try to do a random act of kindness as often as I can.  Here I share some of the acts of kindness I'd like to share in my lifetime.  I know the list will continue to grow.  It's amazing how one small act of kindness can inspire change or impact another person's life.  What are some of your favorite ways to spread kindness? 

Put positive sticky notes around town - "Post-it kindness". 

Shelter animal adoption fee.  Many shelters have an adoption fee for thier dogs, cats, etc...Leave the correct dollar amount for that particular shelter and ask that they use it for a family that is looking to adopt an animal. 

Pay for someone's snack at a vending machine. 

Send flowers to a friend.
