3 Ways to Get Your Kids Involved in Random Acts of Kindness Week

What is a Random Act of Kindness, exactly? Well, it pretty much defines itself. An act of kindness is something unexpected done by one person that spreads joy to someone else. It can be planned in advance, making it no-so-random, or it can be done spontaneously. Whichever way you decide to spread kindness, the point is that you work towards bettering your community through small, simple gestures done on a daily basis.
