I don't wait for one week in February to do random acts of kindness.It is such an important action that I do them through out the year.I have no ribbons to give out, it's done anonymously. It's a great feeling and my hope is that the person I do one for will pay it forward and do one some day. When you least expect it you may get your ice cream paid for at Rite Aide or a full tank of gas, or a bridge toll paid for...there's a long list of things to do that don't even cost a penny,just your time.That's how I do it,year round
You are so right, amtgal. There are so many things each of us can do every single day that cost nothing but our time. From picking up trash on your road to asking that store clerk how their day is going (and mean it) to holding a door and more. Each little interaction can make a difference in someone's day. Sorry to be a bit of a downer on the ribbons week but have to say it - another act of kindness and a lesson in personal responsibility would be for students to come back after a couple of weeks and take the ribbons down. At least on our main street, it is always left to businesses to clean up and dispose. There is nothing sadder than seeing all those bedraggled, sodden ribbons laying around the bases of poles and trees come winter's end.
