Celebrate Kindness and Thanksgiving with time and a smile

Entrepreneurship

November 18, 2021


With the turmoils that many of us face, it costs nothing to be kind. Well, maybe just a few minutes and a smile. But those things can make a world of difference in someone’s life. November 13 is World Kindness Day and there are so many ways to show love to our neighbors, community members and even our nation. This pandemic has taken so much, let’s deposit some kindness in our communities.

Sharing a few kind words or to compliment someone on their smile or outfit can be very uplifting. With the ever going pay it forward movement, there’s no excuse to no brighten someone’s day. I was once in a Starbucks drive through and the gentleman in the car ahead of me paid for my order. That kind gesture stayed with me all day.

According to the World Kindness Day website, being kind is a mutually beneficial act. It can help lower your blood pressure, reduce stress, create healthy peer relationships, etc. It can also help mend broken relationships. With Thanksgiving Day also just a couple weeks away, there’s no better time like the present to try to reach out a kind hand, thought or deed to those we’ve previously may have had unpleasant moments.

Volunteering is a perfect way to share kindness and love this celebratory season and here are few places across the U.S. where you can make a difference in a life.• California: The League. People with disabilities sometimes need assistance to do everyday tasks that fully abled people take for granted. The League is takes volunteers who can donate time to drive or donate to make lives a little easier.• Atlanta: Hosea Helps. Formerly known as Hosea Feed the Homeless and Hungry, civil rights activist, Hosea Williams started this organization in 1971 with an annual turkey drive that grew to match the large need from those who suffer from homelessness, hunger and now, joblessness or unlivable wages. Click here if you are interested in volunteering.• New Jersey: Move for Hunger. Gifting fresh food for those who live in areas where it’s not available is a tremendous gift! The goal of Move for Hunger is to reduce food waste and share it with those in need. There are so many ways you and your family and friends can pitch in and help!

A few national organizations that will welcome volunteers are Meals on WheelsToys for Tots, or any group that helps members of the disabled community or our beloved veterans. You can also visit your community churches, shelters or just help a neighbor in need to show kindness and share a much-needed smile.
