Friday the 13th is taking on a different meaning this year! Today is World Kindness Day, designed to help people focus on the good things in their lives and pay it forward.
The team at Madison Reed has been weaving this spirit into everyday life by performing Acts of Love throughout the year. Our biggest lesson? That it doesn’t take a lot to make a difference in someone else’s life. Here are some highlights to get you inspired and joining in!
Santiago slipped cash inside two of his favorite books at the local library. He also included notes to share why those books inspired him so much. What a delightful surprise that must’ve been for the lucky readers.
Meanwhile, Winston focused on making the most of company lunches by sharing with those who really need it.
Sometimes, recognition is the biggest gift of all. Beth went out of her way to email the CEO of her commuter bus company and praise her driver. A gift card and heartfelt note for the driver completed this act of love.
Justin got playful by tucking money inside golden envelopes, attaching them to balloons, and letting them fly out into the world because “everyone deserves to receive love.”
Kathy also channeled her inner child by stopping to talk to Zoe, a girl raising money for her school band, instead of just rushing by. Then she donated money and told Zoe to keep the cookies so she could raise even more money!
Wherever you go, care packages always show you care. Chelsea put together 20 bags filled with first aid kits, personal care, water, snacks, and a fresh t-shirt so she’d have something to hand out when she walked by anyone in need.
We hope our Acts of Love spark ideas for giving back in your own special way. If you do, please tell us by tagging #MadisonReedLove and #ActsofLove in your post. Every story opens up a world of possibilities!
