Spreading Love with Random Acts of Kindness

I keep seeing other bloggers get hateful comments on posts and this has got to stop! We need to lift each other up and not bring each other down. If you don’t like following someone, then DON’T! If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say it at all. This is the motto I live by. In light of finding these comments, I am choosing to spread kindness. Today my hopes are that I can inspire you to spread random acts of kindness.

I am excited to partner with Be Good To People to share how to create a kinder world and spread the love in honor of Random Acts Of Kindness Week (Feb. 11-18) and Valentine’s Day. BGTP is a brand based out of Colorado (read more about the brand’s story below).

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 1 John 4:7-8

I saw this bible verse recently on someone’s email signature and it really spoke to me. God wants us to love one another and this brings me back to the cardinal rule: treat each other how you would like to be treated. I always try to remind myself that you never know what someone is going through, so I think it’s important to be kind to everybody. The littlest things can brighten someone’s day, so I am sharing ways to do random acts of kindness and create a kinder world.valentines day outfit | random acts of kindness ideas. | how to spread kindness | casual valentines day outfit

16 Random Act Of Kindness Ideas

  1. Smile at a stranger- This simple effort doesn’t cost a thing and can brighten someone’s day.
  2. Bring Valentines or flowers to the elderly at an assisted living or nursing facility.
  3. Make treats for the police or fire station or a neighbor and bring them on Valentine’s Day.
  4. Pay for an elderly person who is eating alone’s meal. This would absolutely brighten their day.
  5. Let someone get over in front of you when driving. I am not always the best at this one, but this little act can make someone’s day.
  6. Open the door for someone.
  7. Pay for someone’s order behind you in a drive thru.
  8. Pay for someone’s parking that is about to expire by adding quarters to the meter.
  9. Donate clothes to the women’s shelter.
  10. Put dollar bills in the toy aisle- I read about this and how neat would this be for a child to find.
  11. Say “thank you” to someone who is working hard. People don’t hear thank you enough.
  12. Put change in a vending machine for the next person.
  13. Send a care package to someone in the military or someone who is down.
  14. Help an elderly person carry groceries to their car.
  15. Give a compliment.
  16. Tell the people who you love that you love them.

More about Be Good To People:

After being treated rudely, the founder was inspired to make a shirt that said, “Be Good To People.” This random encounter has forever changed her life and her experience has inspired others daily. She brands her items in black and white because kindness is that simple. I chose to style mine with bold colors and symbols of love too. For every BGTP item sold, 5% goes to their non-profit. This message reminds me to be the good you want to see in the world. You can check their store out here. Use promo code: BYERSRAK18 for 15% off total purchase.

There are still so many good people in this world!  I want to encourage you to go out and do a random act of kindness this week and post about it with #bgtp and #rak18 and nominate someone else. Don’t forget to tag me @abyersguide and @begoodtopeople. You can also comment below to tell me how you plan to do a RAK.

My posting schedule is going to be a little different this week. I am sharing my next blog post on Wednesday  in honor of Valentine’s Day, so stay tuned. Make sure to subscribe to my blog here, so you don’t miss a post.

    These are such good ideas that don’t take much from us. I could absolutely start working on number 5 on my daily commute – because I’m not very good at it.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes, I really struggle with that one, but am trying to get better at it 🙂

    That saddens me that people are lashing out unkindly on blogs. Acts of kindness are so powerful and the world needs more of it. Thank you for your uplifting post. xo

      I feel the same way! I can’t understand why people have to be so mean, but spreading kindness is so important. I am glad you enjoyed it.

    Court, this post is so cute and so perfect for this week. It breaks my heart how cruel people can be but I am so proud to call you my friend and to see you stand up for the people that bullying is affecting. I plan to take treats up to the elementary school I tutor at for the teachers. They work so hard but are often forgotten.

      Aww you’re so sweet, Courtney. Thank you! I am so thankful we became friends too. ❤️❤️ that is such a wonderful idea. They will so appreciate that. They really do get forgotten but are so wonderful and make a difference.

    I enjoyed your post. We are teaching our children about kindness and your suggestions are things we can do with them. I love the outfit!

    I LOVE this look and these ideas, Court! I’ve already been doing some of this but will definitely have to add more to my list 🙂 Also, I know we’ve already talked about this but remember that whoever is trying to bring you down is already below you!

    I have to feel bad for those who have a need to be nasty in their postings. They must live such sad lives. I was so excited to see that it is Random Acts of Kindness week; though personally, I believe it should be and every day thing, and not 1 week out of the year.

      I do too! I cannot imagine living like that. I agree with you that they should be done everyday 🙂

    Hi Courtney, this is such an awesome post! I cant believe anyone would say hurtful stuff about you, you are an angel in the blogging world. The bible verse from John is very inspiring to do good. We need to have love in our hearts. I intend to print out this post with the 16 acts of kindness and see how many I can do. Love your outfit the skirt is so lovely the fullness , length and print are all perfect! Have a nice day my Friend, Terri xo.

      Terri, you are so kind as always! Thank you for these kind words. Yes, it was a little upsetting at first to read, but I feel like I am stronger because of it. Let me know if you get to do some of these random acts of kindness 🙂

    I am so sorry to hear you stumbled on that, Courtney. But you have done such an amazing job of turning this into a positive. This post is another awesome one! Your random acts of kindness ideas are all fabulous – love the idea of hiding dollar bills in the toy aisle! Be Good to People also sounds like an incredible company — thank you for introducing us to them!
