As we celebrate Presidents Day, we also celebrate National Random Acts Of Kindness Day that reminds us to be kind through our daily actions. Celebrating this holiday is a great way to spend some time with the family while teaching your kids the value of giving back and doing simple acts of kindness. It can be as simple as holding a door for the person behind you or impactful as going to volunteer as your local community non-profit organization.
Pay it forward
Whether your getting coffee or lunch it’s always nice to pay it forward by paying for the order for the next customer. The great thing about paying it forward is inspiring others to be kind as well.
Find something your passionate about and get involved by volunteering your time. There are a variety of great causes you can help with like animal rescues, community centers, and homeless shelters. Volunteering your time will help you connect with your local community and give you an opportunity to give back.

Run a charity marathon
One thing you can do to help give back that will also benefit yourself is running a marathon for charity such as the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure that helps spread awareness and raise money for breast cancer research. There are different marathons that you can participate in through running, biking, swimming, and more.
Lend a helping hand
If you see someone who may need some help or have their hands full you can offer a lending hand. Whether you hold the door for someone or offer someone some help carrying their groceries, a helping hand is always appreciated.
Community clean up project
One of the kindest acts you can do for your local community is volunteering for a community cleanup. The best part about volunteering for cleanup is the variety of locations you get to visit including parks and beaches.
