Random Acts of Kindness Ideas

Published by Julie Anne Byrne on

Today is the 1st of February 2020 a brand new month with an extra day for us all to be extraordinarily awesome and kind to ourselves and to others.

Random Acts of Kindness Week runs from the 16th-23rd, and on Monday 17th February we mark Random Acts of Kindness Day. We all have a wonderful opportunity to spread a little extra kindness this month.

“Your one random act of kindness may not change the world but it might make a difference in the life of someone today”~ Maria Koszler


I’ve created a calendar for the month of February detailing daily random acts of kindness ideas which you might find useful. These can be mixed up whichever way you want or you can add in some of your own.


Feel free to pass this image on or share this calendar with your friends and family or on your social media accounts.  Here is a special PDF version if you wish to print it out, and a text-only version for use with screen readers.

How great would it be to create an even more powerful ripple of kindness around the globe?

And remember if you can’t find the opportunity to be kind to others…be kind to your mind!

Be Kind to your mind

What a wonderful post.  I will share this with all my friends.  Glad to see a post like this.  I remember the movie “Evan Almighty” where a Ark had to be built.  And in the end the work Ark stood for Acts Of Random Kindness.  This post is so on.  It takes random acts of kindness to change the world.  Bravo to the author!  Look forward to seeing more posts like this in the future.

    Thanks Jon glad you enjoyed my post, thank you so much for dropping a comment here. 

    I would be thrilled for you to share it with your friends, thank you so much.  

    Every little bit helps and it all leads to the ripple effect 😉

    All the best, Julie Anne

This is simply beautiful. I think this should be promoted so the whole world can see and hopefully implement it. 

Also, it’d be such a great idea if this random act of kindness is practiced throughout the month, or even better, all through the year and the course of our lives. 

I’m so glad I found this and I sure hope it goes viral. You just made my day Julie, and I’m grateful for that.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts Rhain, I am glad you liked my article and calendar.  

    I would like to think as humans we try to practice kindness in our daily lives, this post is just a way to highlight what we do and to be more mindful of how kindness can have such a positive effect on the recipient. 

    Thanks again for commenting and wishing you all the best, Julie Anne

Boy, does kindness seem to be a thing that is lacking a lot these days, huh? 

I think the calendar you have created is a really helpful tool to remind us to be kind to one another. 

Hopefully, by following it, we can start to create a new habit of kindness that will extend far beyond just the month of February. 

Thanks for the encouraging post!

    Most welcome Steve, glad you found my calendar helpful and that you aim to follow it, remember you can add in what is more relevant to you in your circumstances, that is the beauty of it, not fixed in stone!

    Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all the best, Julie Anne

Showing kindness is very important. When we do this we show that we appreciate every human that comes our way. 

Mother Theresa is a perfect example that we can learn from.

Talking about kindness, it doesn’t necessarily mean money, but the way we talk to people, our attitude and many other of our actions speak a lot. 

We should learn to show kindness. A little kindness could change one’s life.

    Thanks for your comment James, you speak a lot of truth. Kindness, as you say, is free and should come naturally to us all. 

    All the best, Julie Anne

This is just awesome. I’ve never known of this. 

Showing or expressing kindness is very important in our lives. We should learn to show kindness to our neighbours, at work, at the park, just any way we find that we can especially in this month of February. 

It’s very interesting to note that a calendar like the one above is all about showing kindness. 

I will definitely download the PDF and follow through each day.

    Julie Anne Byrne · February 2, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    Thanks Leon delighted you will follow the calendar if we all did a little what a lot of difference that would make. 

    All the best, Julie Anne
