Love Project Assignment 7: Be Kind

Today starts Week 7 of The Love Project and since I know Random Acts of Kindness is getting ready to kick off Extreme Kindness Week starting February 14, I thought it would be a good week to revisit Kindness.

Assignment 7: Do something kind for someone.

Pretty simple! If you blog either about your act of kindness or an act of kindness that was done for you, I'll added it to this week's Website Wedneday.

Extra Credit: Want a bigger challenge? Take the Extreme Kindness Challenge. From the press release:

“The ‘extreme’ in our challenge is that we’re urging people to take their kind acts to extremes by committing to do a random act of kindness every day for a week,” explained Marilyn Decalo, director of the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. “We’ll provide plenty of help with daily action prompts and daily updates on how many acts of kindness the group completes. We believe that encouraging extreme kindness in this way is Our Ticket to a Kinder World.”

Hi Yvette! We certainly celebrate random acts of kindness! :)

Great to see you this morning on our "Win 365 Thank Yous" blog post! When you were visiting HI, did you note one site sponsor is String-Ring, The Kindness Reminder Ring? We think that is such a neat idea!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yes, Shirley, you are on it! Don't know how you keep up with all the projects and goals, but since kindness is something you do naturally, it doesn't surprise me that you'd be participating.

Gordon and Tracy, I really want to get the 365 Thank Yous book and participate in the Virtual book club. Unlike Shirley, I can't seem to keep up with all the various projects, so I'm not sure if I'll read it in time to participate, but I'll try. And thanks for letting me know about the String-Ring. I checked out their site and will add them to Website Wednesday!

PS. I'll also add Happiness Inside to Website Wednesday and my Love Link List! You guys have a great network!

Hi Yvette!

That is so kind of you! Thank you!

And remember, even if you can't "keep up in real time," we don't close the book clubs so feel free to share whenever works best for YOU. Your insight could be the "aha" moment for another member!

Have a GREAT week!

Tracy and Gordon
