It's time for August Kindness Day!

Hi friends, it's Elena again here with another blog post!!

I once again have ten kindness suggestions for this month's Kindness Day on August 13th!
  1. Do a chore for your family without them knowing!
  2. Let someone go ahead of you in line! 
  3. Donate food to you local food pantry!
  4. Read a book to your younger siblings!  
  5. Make someone else's bed!
  6. Say "thank you" to service worker! 
  7. Volunteer at a soup kitchen! 
  8. Bring some play dough to a preschool class! 
  9. Make a thank you card for your librarian! 
  10. Visit your local retirement home and visit a resident!
So these are the kindness suggestions for the month!! What will you do?? Let me know what you're doing this month by emailing me at

Also, new this month! You can write down your act of kindness for Kindness Day on a paper hand - or your own hand! - and share it through social media using #HandsofKindness. This will share my campaign for kindness with lots of people!


This month I would like to give a few shout outs:
  • To the East Hartford Rotary Club for donating eleven Buddy Benches to East Hartford elementary schools!! 
  • To the HOT Schools Summer Institute for letting me speak at their annual conference and spread the word about kindness! 
  • HOT Schools Coaches Donna Fitzgerald, Betty Hadlock and Carol Kennedy for their email and support!
  • Also big shout out to Joyce Lesich from the Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville, VA - thank you for the email and for helping with the Kiwanis 5k run to benefit kids with medical concerns!! 
Talk to you guys soon!!
