Give a little love, a little praise, a little thanks!
Join the 20 Days of Sharing Fierce Kindness Community Initiative
One small act of Kindness can change a life—or even the world.
Jot down one expression of gratitude, affirmation or inspiration each day to be a positive force for change in the world. It’s as easy as a penning a line or two expressing thanks to someone who has encouraged you, or jotting a note to buoy the confidence of someone you care about—or even yourself. That’s our plan during 20 days in November, and we want you to Share YOUR Fierce Kindness with us.
Here’s how: First: Join us by writing and sending one card a day. It doesn’t have to be a well-written essay a simple line or two can have a profoundly positive effect on someone! Then: Before popping your missive into the mailbox, share the card and with us on Instagram between November 3 and November 22—Thanksgiving.
We are so excited to see the ripple effect!
In case you feel stuck, here’s a suggestion for each day of the challenge, but of course, you’re free to send whatever missives of kindness fit your life. We’re excited to be together on this mission to simply and powerfully make a difference.
Day 1 Write a postcard to someone who does an important job but doesn’t get enough appreciation—like the garbage collector.
Day 2 Write to your sibling—or someone who has been like a sibling to you—about a favorite memory of you together.
Day 3 Write to your boss or coworker, noting a few things that you appreciate about them.
Day 4 Write a letter to your past self, forgiving yourself for a mistake you made.
Day 5 Write out the two most inspirational qualities of your favorite teacher and send it to them, or keep it on your mirror as inspiration.
Day 6 Draw a picture of you and your best friend in crayon laughing and doing your favorite activity together.
Day 7 Write a random love note or note of inspiration to someone who is a good citizen or you seeing out in the world being kind.

Let me know how it goes!!
