Kind is Kool Challenge
Welcome to the Kind is Kool information page.
The Kind is Kool challenge is simple. Every Friday, I’ll post a prompt of something you can do that is kind. You may take the challenge and do it…or not.
The challenges so far:
Week 1 – Give someone you don’t know a sincere compliment.
Week 2 – As you see pieces of litter on the ground this week (inside or outside) pick them up and throw them away.
Week 3 – Write someone a thank you note.
Week 4 – Give away 10 things to a charity shop, to friends or to family
Week 5 – This week, be conscious when anyone talks to you and focus your FULL attention on them. No glancing at your phone, computer screen, television, etc.
Week 6 – Buy someone a surprise lunch, coffee, drink or snack.
Week 7 – Find a funny joke and tell it to as many people as you can this week.
Week 8 – Shop at a local business.
Week 9 – When talking on the phone, smile. The smile will show up in your voice.
Week 10 – When you’re at a store, if you notice a loose shopping cart in the parking lot, retrieve it, and drop it off at the shopping cart receptacle or return it to the store.
Week 11 – Go above and beyond with one little thing.
Week 12 – Reflect and act on this…Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be a living expression of God’s kindness. Kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. Mother Teresa
Week 13 – Open and hold doors for people.
Week 14 – Send a card to someone at their work address.
Week 15 – When you feel impatient with someone, imagine they are someone you love.
Week 16 – Take a treat (baked goods, candy, fruit, etc.) to work or a meeting.
Week 17 – Every day this week, pray for someone or some situation you don’t like.
Week 18 – Take a photo of something…you, your family, a pet, something pretty…print it off and send it to someone in a card or letter.
Week 19 – Give someone a single flower, flower bouquet or flowering plant.
Week 20 – Express gratitude to a veteran or veterans organization.
Week 21 – Think about ways you can volunteer. Take one step of action.
Week 22 – Next time you go out to eat, decide on a generous tip percentage ahead of time and leave it for the server regardless of how you perceive the service.
Week 23 – Try to ask more open-ended questions this week…questions that cannot be answered with one word responses.
Week 24 – Write a thank you note to someone who provides you regular service (hairdresser, postal worker, person who picks up your trash).
Week 25 – Donate to an organization or cause you’ve never donated to before.
Week 26 – Before you act, consider your motives. This is a wonderful exercise in the morning, as you plan your day or in the evening, as you reflect upon your day.
