Heart of gold

With the holiday season around the corner, we're all feeling that little extra warmth in our hearts. Use those feelings to bring good cheer with a kind gesture or 42. And whether the gestures are random or intentional, a bit of kindness can go a long way, even if you have only five seconds or an entire day to give.
Heart of gold

When you have 15 minutes


Bagel Monday

We all dread Mondays at the office, so brighten up yours with breakfast on you!


Balloon surprise

Balloons aren't just for birthdays and congratulations anymore, they are for everyday smiles! Grab a couple on your way to visit a friend or when you go into work for a little fun surprise to brighten someone's day.


Welcome wagon

Is there someone new to work or the neighborhood? Greet them with a hello and chat them up a bit to allow them to feel comfortable in their new environment.


Clean the neighborhood

You notice the trash on your nightly strolls, so when you have the extra time, take along a trash bag and pick it up!


Book at a bus stop

Take a book from your bookshelf that has a bit of dust on it and leave it at a bus stop for a rider's entertainment.


Donate used books

Take your used books to a local library, or if you have spare children's books, donate them to a children's school or classroom.


Send a photo

Have an old photo or notice a great snapshot of a friend in your camera? Send it to them!
