Ideas for Enacting Kindness and Promoting Nonviolent Action in the Community: A Resource for All Ages


Write positive sticky notes for someone and brighten their day!

Grab a stack of sticky notes and spend five minutes writing positive statements on them.  Then place the sticky notes anywhere that needs a little kindness like an office, a bus stop, a gas pump, a parked car, a hallway, or hidden places for people to find.

Here are a few phrases to get you started:

  • You know who's awesome?  Read that first word again.

  • Throw kindness around like glitter!

  • Hey, you're great.

  • One kind word can change someone's entire day.

  • Pssst... you're awesome!

Simple Acts of Kindness... for the Earth

These simple tips will help not only our planet but the creatures we share it with!

Upcycle boxes. You can use old shoeboxes as storage containers for photos or crafts, and empty cereal boxes can easily be made into magazine holders. Try using old boxes to ship things, or add a little imagination for some fun with the kids (big boxes can be used to make forts!). When we get creative and reuse items, it puts less strain on the planet!
