Do you want to send a message along with your gifts this Christmas? If so, there certainly are a lot of ways you can do that. From buying kindness apparel to having a kindness-theme service party, here are some ideas that might help you to spread kindness this Christmas and all through 2020.
Kindness Apparel - Have you seen the great-looking T-shirts and sweatshirts that have kindness as their theme? If so, maybe you've already started your Christmas shopping. If you haven't seen this type of clothing, you'll be amazed at the many different styles of kindness apparel there are. For example, choose a T-shirt that says In A World Where You Can Be Anything, Be Kind. There's another design that cleverly states Be Kind, with a picture of a bee insect in place of the word bee. A truly creative kindness T-shirt has the Choose To Be Kind both in words and in sign language.
Maybe you would like to create your own message centered on kindness. If so, consider words that say Kindness Is Contagious, Always Choose Kindness, or simply the word KIND in bold letters, with a picture of a happy face as part of the design. Maybe you'd like the expression, I Choose Kind Friends. Will You Be My Friend?
Kindness apparel is affordable, and it comes in many different colors and sizes. A T-shirt or sweatshirt is a great gift by itself. However, if you want to make the gift more important, give both a T-shirt and a sweatshirt, or pair the kindness shirt with new blue jeans or a cute skirt that will complement the color of the shirt you have selected.
Host A Kindness Service Party - With kindness in mind, think of all of the charitable services you could organize for your community. For example, invite many of your friends to your house and decorate pillowcases that can later be given along with new pillows to a battered women's shelter or to an assisted living facility.
Another idea is to organize a food drive. Invite your friends to your home and ask them to bring as many non-perishable food items as they can bring. Some people might bring a few cans of canned soup, while others will bring jars of peanut butter and jelly. Find out from your community's food pantry when you can bring the food by. If your friends can join you in the delivery, that would be the frosting-on-the-cake.Share
