Kindness is free to give, and we may not realize it, but small gestures matter even more than we may think.
Too many times we forget the impact that simple gestures can make –this is exactly why National Random Acts of Kindness Day is being celebrated – to encourage everyone to spread kindness.
Random Acts of Kindness Day is the ‘best kept secret’ of holidays; much like Halloween, it’s an occasion that really comes to life at the neighborhood level. By performing an act of kindness for a neighbor – you’re strengthening bonds in your community, which will pay in dividends down the road.
In fact, a Nextdoor study reveals knowing as few as 6 neighbors will lower feelings of social anxiety and loneliness.
So how can your audience take part, what do they need to know, and where does your state rate on the kindness scale?
Meaghan B Murphy, Nextdoor Ambassador, Lifestyle Expert, mom of 3 conducted a nationwide media tour on February 16th to discuss Random Acts of Kindness Day and how the Nextdoor App can help you connect with your local community.
