World Kindness Day: 13th November

The clocks have gone back, the nights are drawing in, and, at Take Note, we’ve reached that time of year where it’s starting to get dark before the end of the 10-4 shift! So, I don’t know about you, but this week seems like a good time to raise a few smiles.

Fancy a challenge?

November 13th is World Kindness Day, so here at Take Note we are challenging you to spread a bit of cheer. Whether it’s a little compliment to your postman, a round of coffee for the office, or flowers for a friend who’s having a bad week, we want to hear about your random acts of kindness.

Share them on social media with the hashtag #TakeNoteKindness, and next week we’ll be sharing them alongside some of the greatest ever random acts of kindness!

So, to give you a few ideas, here are a few simple random acts of kindness to spread the love:

1. Flowers for a stranger

Buy a bouquet of flowers, separate them up into single blossoms, and hand each of them out to friends, colleagues, or even a stranger on the street. Watch how their faces light up!

2. Thinking of you

If someone you know is going through a rough time, why not send them a card and let them know you’re there for them? It’s a tiny action that will mean so much.

3. Catch-up with Mum

When was the last time you called your Mum? Why not give her a ring and let her know how awesome she is? #MumsMakeTheWorldGoAround

4. Give to the bank

No, not those banks. When you go shopping this week, why not donate something to your local food bank? Most major supermarkets have collections by the tills.

5. Be a book fairy

Buy your favourite book and leave it in a public place, like a train station or a shopping centre, for someone else to discover.

6. Notes of kindness

Write little notes like, ‘This is a reminder that you are amazing,’ and leave them around your workplace or town.

Always try to be a little kinder than is necessary – JM Barrie
