Random Acts of Kindness Writing Prompt

Start a list of acts of kindness that you can do anywhere to brighten someone's day.

By Ratha M.

So far this has happened to my friend TWO times . . . She was in line at the drive-thru Starbucks, and the person in the car in front of her paid for her order! Isn’t that crazy? So by the time she got to the window to pay, it was already paid for!

Sometimes I wonder about these random acts of kindness. If we all did something at least once . . .  one time a day . . . could we change the world one small step at a time? Or at least make it a little happier?

I love this quote by the Chinese poet Lao Tzu: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”

What do you guys think? There are at least a million ways to be kind! Let’s get a list going of acts of kindness that you can do anywhere to brighten someone’s day. Like . . .

  • including someone new into your conversation
  • giving away a few of your old toys you’ve outgrown to your neighbor’s baby
  • holding the door instead of barging ahead
  • saying "Hello" to someone in school you've never spoken to before

What else can you guys think of? We can’t wait to see your small acts of kindness. We’ll tally the count in the Comments below!
