As we approach this holiday season we are bombarded with the hustle and bustle of modern-day Christmas. Lights twinkle, illuminating the shiny new toys and things. Music and bells jingle on every corner. Its the most wonderful time of the year, or so it seems.
But Christmas isn't always grand for everyone. Many people this holiday season are let feeling alone or underprivileged. While there are many organizations designed to help children receive toys and goodies for Christmas, often the people who are really in need of the Christmas spirit are left unnoticed.
This holiday season, I want to urge you to practice random acts of kindness. Random acts of kindness don't have to revolve around money and often are much simpler than you'd think. A simple blanket or hot beverage could brighten someone's day or even save a life. Yep, that's right. While we are having fun trimming the tree, there are others who believe that the world would be better without them. Volunteering for your local suicide hotline could save a life this holiday season.
But I'm only affecting one person you say? As if that's not enough. Statistically speaking, people who receive random acts of kindness are 76% more likely to pass it on and perform a random act of kindness of their own. With just a few simple acts of kindness, we can change the world.
