A Brief History:
Origination:The holiday originated in New Zealand by Josh de Jong celebrated originally on the day of September 1st. The holiday started to get recognized by other countries on other random days throughout the year. In the U.S., it ended up on February 17th, growing in popularity every year it is celebrated. The main goal of the day is for individuals, groups, and organizations to encourage kindness nationwide today, and then every day of the year.
Purpose: A Random Acts of Kindness inspires people, and a day of celebration for people everywhere to enjoy these acts of kindness as a blessing, not only to bring joy to the receiver, but also to spread positive reactions to the giver as well!
Statement: “I was a recipient of the kindness but more glad to be a contributor!” (Unknown)
Other Resources: The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation was created in 1995 to inspire people to practice kindness and the act of “passing it on” to others. The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation was founded upon the belief in kindness and became dedicated to providing the resources and tools encouraging acts of kindness.
Celebrated: February 17th every year!

- However, one of the most important characteristics of a kind person is that when they do something for someone, they don’t expect anything in return.
- Kindness can be learned, even though some people seem to think that being born with a kindness is from genetic characteristics. Even so, other people develop an ability to show great kindness later on in life.
- You can teach children kindness by demonstrating kindness in daily life. By letting them see you showing your kindness to other like volunteering or assisting neighbors, the children acknowledge your acts of kindness. This will go a long way of instilling kindness to live on to the new generation.
