Give free gifts of kindness this December

‘Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible’ – Dalai Lama

So, you’ve survived Black Friday and Cyber Monday – and maybe had a little left over for Giving Tuesday?

Let’s not forget that December is a marathon, not a sprint. It may be the ‘most wonderful time of year’ for some, it can also be the most expensive and challenging time of the year for many.

It’s important to remember that giving gifts is not just about sharing ‘stuff’ – we can give so much in so many ways: time, attention, thoughtfulness.

It’s traditional to count the days to Christmas – some count with an Advent calendar, some count the number of days they have left to shop, or the number of sleeps til Santa comes!

Maybe this year, try counting the days with kindness – for yourself and others. This Kindness Calendar suggests random acts of kindness each day in December 2017 to help spread a little more happiness in our communities.

If any of the suggestions don’t work for you, why not double up on another from a different day, or get creative and choose your own?

It goes right through to New Year too – if you find some of these that make a difference, maybe they could make positive resolutions for 2018 too!

You can download the Kindness Calendar as an image file or as a PDF file for printing out. Please pass it on to others – kindness is a free gift!
