Every year, Random Acts of Kindness Week is celebrated February 14-20, and the National Random Acts of Kindness Day is tomorrow (Friday Feb. 17).
This morning on the show, we shared some of the history behind Random Acts of Kindness. It was a term first coined by Anne Herbert in 1982 in California. She wrote the phrase “practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty” on a placemat in response to some violent phrase that someone else had written. She wanted to end senseless violence. She wrote a children’s book in 1993 to teach children about showing kindness to others. Since then, we’ve celebrated Random Acts of Kindness.
There’s many ways to celebrate! You can perform those random acts of kindness for other people, read books that inspire you, and help inspire other people.

We also shared some stories about how people have been impacted by random acts of kindness. We shared stories of snow days, holding the door open for others, helping a stranger in need, and being present with other people. These stories are inspiring and will give you some ideas of how you can show kindness during Random Acts of Kindness Week.
