Random Acts of Kindness Day is February 17th. Kindness is simply doing something nice for someone else, without them asking and without you doing it for anything in return. You could compliment 5 random people, donate to those in need, help your neighbor by running an errand or buy a stranger a cup of coffee. We could all use more kindness in our lives!
