Here is a heads up that National Random Acts of Kindness Day is celebrated on February 17th. Here at Lemonade Day, we want to encourage everyone to consider performing an act of kindness. After all, our “share some” philosophy personifies kindness and generosity.
If you are looking for inspiration, here are some ideas:
Let someone go first — at work, at school, in the store, etc.
Help carry someone’s shopping bags.
Shovel your neighbor’s sidewalk.
Offer to mow your neighbor’s lawn and clean up their flower beds.
Roll out a neighbor’s garbage can.
Hold a book drive for a children’s shelter or organization, or even your own school.
Send a card.
Leave inspirational notes around town.

And if you looking for some feel-good moments, here are some videos you might enjoy.
Finally, I will leave you with these quotes on kindness:
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” —Mark Twain
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” —Aesop
“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” —Scott Adams
“Kind words and actions can seem so small, but their effects are truly endless.” —Author Unknown

Since 2007, the Lemonade Day program has been teaching leadership and business skills by encouraging children to launch a lemonade business in their community. The organization inspires young people with a desire to learn business skills and financial literacy to set up their lemonade stand where they can apply customer service skills, collaborate with business owners and investors and experience real-world business owner challenges.
Lemonade Day has expanded to over 84 licensed markets in the United States (including six U.S. military bases), Canada, Bermuda and South Africa. More than one million children and thousands of adult mentors have participated in Lemonade Day since 2007. Adults can register a child to participate in Lemonade Day and give them a taste of the sweet success that comes with owning their own business. For more information, visit lemonadeday.org.
