Random Acts of Kindness Day - 52 Weeks of Great Kickoff

Did you know February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day? Well, it is! And now you know! I meant to really kick off the #onesteptowardgreat campaign earlier but it's been a sick household for 2 weeks plus I was parenting solo this week so A LOT of things I meant to do simply have not been done. But it worked out well because I'll start my 52 Weeks of Great mission on Random Acts of Kindness Day and then end it on the same day next year!

Here's the gist: For the next 52 weeks, I'm going to be posting weekly with one or two ideas for spreading smiles, kindness, generosity, gratitude, respect - all of those good things! We'll call these Great Ideas. I will also be sharing the acts of others on facebook and twitter (although I'm new to twitter, it may take a little while till I'm updating that frequently!) with #onesteptowardgreat. On top of that, I'll be working on compiling a giant list of Great Ideas for reference with as much information and as many links to groups/charities as possible to make it really easy for all of you out there to help in any way you can.

So let's kick this thing off! Our random act of kindness today was inspired by Lil C who colored a special valentine for her aunt yesterday after hearing she was sick (quite possibly infected by us...). Since we were all feeling a little better today, I figured we were up for a brief road trip. After stopping by the store for some flowers, we headed over to my sister-in-law's house where we surprised her with our gift...and then had a brief play session because there are few things Lil C loves more than playing with her aunt!

Here's Lil C in the car with her primrose plant, on the way to spread some smiles! I'm so excited about spreading smiles wherever we can over the next year, I truly hope you'll join me!
