Random Acts of Kindness Day

Acts of Kindness 1

Happy National Random Acts of Kindness Day! 

On February 17, we here at Lokafy like to take the day to emphasize the importance of forming human connections and being compassionate to the people around us, that we as humans are much stronger and more resilient when we come together than when we are apart. 

With so much conflict and tensions within our world today, let's recognize the goodness in people and combat the hate by showing an act of kindness to someone you encounter today.

Random Acts Kindness Day

Wherever you are in the world, this can be something as simple as treating someone to a cup of coffee, donating your used clothing, or sharing a compliment with a co-worker, stranger, family member, or friend.

Did you know that studies have shown kindness is indeed contagious? When a person does an act of kindness for another person, it makes the person receiving it more likely to do an act of kindness for someone else. 

Whether big or small, your act of kindness can act as a catalyst for many more, just like a ripple on a pond, so don’t think your act of kindness doesn’t matter because it does. Together, let's bring more light and togetherness back into our world and day-to-day life and strengthen the human connections we have with each other.

And let's not stop with today, let's continue to be intentional with kindness throughout the rest of the year! We thought we'd end our post today with a simple quote that we hope becomes our mantra for the year:

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." -Leo Buscaglia
