Kindness Week 2021

16th Feb 2021

Random Acts of Kindness week provides us all with an opportunity for schools and workplaces alike to focus on the impact that kindness can have. It also gives us time to reflect on the importance of pro-actively promoting positive behaviour and a chance to show our children that a little bit of kindness can go a long way.

Here at BulliesOut we wanted to mark this year’s Random Acts of Kindness week. It seems appropriate that we take every opportunity possible this year to make another person smile. And a simple act of kindness by another can do exactly that.

We would like to ask you all to join in alongside your children to show them that being kind isn’t just for children. It’s for everyone. Seeing the impact of their act on another will lift their whole day and hopefully inspire others to ‘pay it forward’ and do the same for another in return. A wave of kindness created from one simple act.

One random act of kindness can have such an effect. Let’s make this week count and make a difference to the mental well-being of another.

Listed below are a few examples of acts of kindness you and your children can carry out:

  1. Pay someone a compliment today.
  2. Bake a cake, or some cookies, for a friend or a relative.
  3. Smile at someone.
  4. Tell someone that you admire why you admire them.
  5. Send a message to, or facetime, a friend that you know is struggling.
  6. Volunteer at a local charity.
  7. Do something nice for someone. Make them a cup of tea. Send them a message.
  8. Hold a door open for someone.
  9. Get in touch with a friend or relative to ask how they are.
  10. Be kind to yourself too. Self-care matters.

You may have other ideas that you want to use too. But whatever they are, know that your  ‘Random Act of Kindness’ will make a big difference to another.

As Aesop said, ‘No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted’.
