A little kindness goes a long way in the world. You might have heard stories of someone paying for the person behind them in the coffee shop drive through and that sparking a chain reaction, where the customer behind them pays for the next person in line and so on and so forth. Random acts of kindness are contagious and worth spreading. In fact, there’s a holiday this month on Feb. 17 called Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Day, created for the celebration and proliferation of little kindnesses everywhere. It’s not quite clear who started this holiday, but a few sources point to a small team of do-gooders in New Zealand back in 2004, who wanted to dedicate one day a year to paying it forward. The holiday is celebrated on Sept. 1 in New Zealand. In the United States, the origin of the holiday could possibly be traced back to the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, which has encouraged its “RAKtivists” to spread kindness wherever they find themselves since the nonprofit was founded in 1995. Even though the origins of the holiday might not be clear, what is clear are the multiple ways people everywhere can observe the holiday. The Random Act of Kindness Foundation’s website shares quite a few different ways you can spread some kindness in your home, workplace, and community. These ideas range from next-to-effortless tweaks to your routine to minor life changes, but all of them have the potential to cause ripple effects within your spheres of influence.

notes sitting on your desk gathering dust, try writing some encouraging notes on them and putting them in different places around the office. You never know whose day you’ll make a little better for doing so. PLANT A TREE Trees play a huge part in keeping our air clean and breathable. Planting just one tree can have positive ramifications on our air quality for generations to come. While you might not see the positive effects of that tree in your lifetime, you can rest assured it’s an act of kindness that will keep on giving. GIFT AN INSPIRATIONAL BOOK What books have shaped your personality for the better? Do you know someone who you think could benefit from that book as well? The best reads shape who we are and are worth sharing with others, so gift your favorite book to a person you think would like it, too. You could even host a book exchange for a group of friends where everyone gives away a copy of their favorite book and receives someone else’s favorite in return. Even though Random Acts of Kindness have their own holiday, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go out of your way to be kind during the other 364 days — just the opposite. RAK Day should remind us all that it’s not always hard to be kind. It will, however, always be worth the effort, and then some.
