It’s just good to be nice…

Tomorrow is Random Acts of Kindness day here in my hometown. A local community group printed up 60,000 kindness cards for the day and the idea is that each card is to be passed on when a random kind act is done in hopes that the person who receives it will do something equally kind and then pass the card on again. 

Now, where I live is pretty nice and I honestly do see people here practicing kind acts most days. I often see people smiling at each other, opening doors and giving to charities.

But you know what? 60,000 cards is a lot of cards.

Which got me wondering. How many people actually live in my town?

The answer I found (thank goodness for web sites) is 165,000.

So, that means roughly every second or third person I know is going to get a card.

Which means that if we all get kind and pass these 60,000 cards around it could potentially be a very busy day in my town tomorrow.

I mean I can see everyone running around passing out the cards and just trying to get rid of one before someone is kind and hands them another.

It could be a kindness passing card frenzy!

My town might just get kindness crazy.

As for me?

I'll be hiding at home.

I'm not up to this kinda pressure.

Sigh.

  1. I’m intrigued. Even if you stay home, statistically your family could still be kind. Kindness could follow them home, and a card could still make its way to you… I’m liking this idea, but I’m feeling pretty safe from the pressure from across the miles.
