Kindness matters. The statement is simple, but putting these words into action can be powerful. Our Club kids are faced with adversity and challenges each day. We, as staff members, are also faced with adversity and challenges each day.
The Clubhouse is one place that kindness and positivity can begin to make the daily challenges easier to tackle. Sharing happiness can be as simple as holding the door open for a friend, or taking the time to ask someone else about their day. Spreading kindness is free and can have a positive effect on your Club!
This month, challenge your staff, yourself, and your Club kids to share acts of kindness throughout the Club and community. Your challenge could take the form of a Club wide initiative or a group project for Club members of any age.
If you don’t have one whole month to commit to starting something new, join schools and organizations from all over the globe for Random Acts of Kindness Week (February 12-18, 2017), created by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. It is a chance to start integrating acts of kindness into your daily routine. You never know what benefits you may see after a week, month, or even a year of intentional kindness to others!
Kindness is contagious. One good deed can lead to a lifetime of positive acts that can impact others! Share your kindness by posting your acts on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #NativeClubs.
