Make the World a Better Place ~ Spread the Power of Kindness!


I've always been a firm believer that the little things often make the biggest difference.  I have raised my children to think the same and have proven it on several different occasions.  A simple act of kindness can brighten someone's day and put a smile on their face and warmth in their heart.


Here are just a few ways that you can spread the power of kindness.  As an added bonus, they won't cost you anything other than a couple moments of your time!
  • Hold the door open at the store for the person behind you, or the person coming out as you're going in
  • Smile at someone as you're walking past
  • Let the person with only a couple of items go in front of you in the grocery store checkout line
  • Leave your spare change in the jar for the next person who is a few cents short
  • Offer to return the shopping cart of someone who is finished as you are just getting started

It’s cold and flu season! As a Boogie Wipes Ambassador, I've been spinning a little KINDNESS with Boogie Wipes!  Share a wipe, give care packages to the sick, make chicken soup, or simply smile with kindness.  Colds spread, but kindness does too!  Boogie Wipes has been sending out thousands of boxes of samples around the country for kind people to share... and I was fortunate enough to be a part of the process!

My daughter and I spent the entire month of December helping #SpinKindness and make the lives of people just a little bit easier, even if only for a moment. 

We made small bags with samples, coupons, and a candy cane inside.



We also made a few larger care packages for a few new moms, pregnant moms, and moms with little ones.  

The mission of Spin Kindness is to empower people to spread more kindness and to create connections through simple, intentional acts of giving.  We left samples in public restrooms at the changing stations, in grocery carts, on front door steps, at wrestling tournaments, and at a local dance studio.  We also gave samples to friends and family!


In the process, we were able to make a lot of people very happy; parents, grandparents, and children...

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”--Plato

How will you help the #SpinKindness initiative and spread more kindness in 2015?
