Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness

“Kind words and actions can seem so small, but their effects are truly endless.”  -Unknown

On February 17th join your fellow citizens in celebrating National Random Acts of Kindness Day, a day observed each year to encourage gentleness and compassion! Sometimes in going about our day to day lives, we can lose sight of the small gestures that actually make a big difference for an individual. We may underestimate the strength of simple expressions like a smile or a listening ear, but we all have the ability to brighten someone’s day. National Random Acts of Kindness Day invites everyone to be a light in the life of anyone you may cross paths with, such as your neighbor, gas attendant, or bank teller.

Your Club can participate in National Random Acts of Kindness Day too! Consider having youth make notes of nice, selfless things they can do throughout the day for their friends, families, and staff at the Club! Have them write a letter about someone who inspires them, or volunteer to assist with program activities. No matter what the act of kindness is, they will know that it’s making a difference. After all, it only takes one candle to light a room!


National Girls & Women in Sports Day is February 7th

This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the annual National Girls & Women in Sports Day (NGWSD), a nationwide celebration of the incredible achievements of women and girls in sports! NGWSD began in 1987 to recognize the unique accomplishments of women in athletics, and is now honored each year through community-based events, award ceremonies, and other commemorative activities across the country. The theme for 2018 is, “Play Fair, Play IX.”

Title IX ensures that students receive educational opportunities free from discrimination based on their sex. Although Title IX has increased the number of opportunities for female athletes, many schools across the country still do not provide equal opportunities for girls. The NGWSD Coalition knows that educating the public about the power of this legislation is necessary for full enforcement. The more you understand Title IX and the rights it protects, the better you'll be able to ensure that everyone in your community has the same chance to benefit from playing sports.

For years the NGWSD has empowered women and girls to get moving, embrace physical activity and push past their limits. Join in on the legacy of equality and celebration by promoting girls sports in your Club, too! We hope you will honor NGWSD in your community and Play Fair, Play IX!
