February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day
Caring Nannies is celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17th! Random Acts of Kindness Day began in 1982 and means “a selfless act performed by kind people to either help or cheer up a random stranger, for no reason other than to make people happier”. The holiday has grown over the years as organizations, groups and individuals are celebrating!
We understand that everyone is busy with day to day life, but let’s take a few minutes of this holiday to do something for someone else to make their day better. It can make a huge difference.
We hope these acts of kindness ideas are helpful to you, so we can spread joy to others.
