Random Acts of Kindness Week!

Since it is National Random Acts of Kindness Week I thought Healthy Campus Initiatives would like to share some ways to appreciate the people around you whether you know them or not!


  1. Never forget to say “excuse me” when you are trying to pass someone or reach around them! It always is respectful and often not used enough these days!
  2. Share a compliment with someone. It is simple and easy but makes someone feel great about themselves.
  3. Hold the door open for someone.
  4. Say “Thank you” more often.
  5. Share a smile!
  6. Donate old clothing or books.
  7. Send a care package, whether it is for a family member or a friend it is sure to brighten someone’s day.
  8. Bring flowers to someone.
  9. Be there for someone who needs to vent. Just listen to someone and if they need advice then jump in and talk.
  10. Leave a note for someone. You may or may not know them who wouldn’t want to get a nice note when they are least expecting it?

There are many different ways to be kind! When people least expect it try and make their day!

Leave a comment below with some ways you have shared a random act of kindness!
