Share your Random Acts of Kindness! #SCTCCKind

Random Acts of Kindness
February 9, 2021

Did you know there is a Random Acts of Kindness Day?

There is! And it is coming up on February 17th!

What is a Random Act of Kindness?  A random act of kindness is a selfless act with a purpose of helping or cheering someone up, with no expectation of gaining anything in return.

Random acts of kindness can benefit the giver and the receiver! Kindness can:

  • Improve mood
  • Increase confidence and compassion
  • Decrease blood pressure and the stress hormone cortisol

Being kind can positively impact our overall wellbeing in many ways. Kindness is contagious – pass it on!
