Random Acts of Kindness

Weddington Kindness Challenge • On Thursday, February 17th the World will celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day. We would like to challenge all Weddington Locals to consider being part of the light in our community and to complete 3 random acts of kindness in the month of February.

History Behind Random Acts of Kindness

When it comes to kindness there is nothing greater! Even more so, there can never be enough kindness in this world. If there is one thing, we have learned from all that is going on in the world over the last few years, it is this: Kindness Matters.

The true concept which was the driving force for Random Act of Kindness Day was to simply brighten someone's day. To make someone feel better than when they did prior. Some may argue that one simple act cannot change the world, but the magic lies in the domino effect. When one person does something nice for another, usually the recipient is in a better mood and that energy is usually passed along. When we feel good, we make others feel good even it is with a smile.

It all started in Denver, Colorado in 1995 when a nonprofit organization called The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation decided to make the day official. Each year, knowledge of the holiday and observance became more and more widespread.
