A list of acts of kindness ideas

We hope you enjoy taking part in #AOKAiredale kindness month. To give you a bit of inspiration to do an act of kindness every day this month, we’ve put together some ideas:

  • Send flowers to a relative
  • Send someone a handwritten note or letter
  • Offer to babysit for a friend
  • Leave a positive review for a small business
  • Connect a charity to your amazon smile account
  • Let someone go in front of you in a queue
  • Make a cup of tea for friends or colleagues
  • Tell someone that you’re proud of them
  • Send a motivational text to a friend who may be struggling
  • Tell someone a joke to cheer them up
  • Put a surprise note on someone’s desk
  • Contact someone you haven’t seen for a while and arrange to meet them
  • Sign up to do voluntary work in your local community
  • Send someone a care package
  • Offer to pick a friend or family member up from work
  • Bake a cake for your colleagues
  • Give praise to a colleague for something they’ve done well
  • Take someone for lunch instead of eating at your desk
  • Let someone go in front of you at the supermarket
  • Smile and say hello to people you may pass every day, but have never spoken to before
  • If you’re buying a coffee for yourself, pay for an extra one for them to give to someone for free later that day

Remember, a small act of kindness can make a big difference to someone!
