10 Kind Things That You Can Do Right Now

You might’ve seen in a couple of last week’s posts that I kept banging on about how unkind and individualistic I feel too many of us have become nowadays; and also how little we practise kindness, not just towards others, but ourselves too.

In today’s post, I want to do something to change that! So I’ve compiled a little list of ten things that you (and I) can do right now to help someone in need.

10 Kind Things for you to do today, Kindness, The Kindness Project, Katie Writes Blog, Derbyshire Bloggers, Katie Writes, ©Katiewrites.co.uk

  1. Donate to a food bank! (Find your nearest here.)
  2. Volunteer! (Do-it.org will have an array of different opportunities near you – Find it here! And if you don’t fancy what they have to offer, why not see if your local hospital, hospice, or care home need volunteers?)
  3. Buy sanitary products for UK girls living in period poverty. (For every box that you buy for yourself, Hey Girls donate a box of environmentally-friendly pads to girls and young women in need. Find their website here!)
  4. Reach out and text a friend in need; especially if you haven’t heard from them in a while – Check in and see if they’re okay!
  5. Find a local independent business and buy from them. Show them your support! (Or find a great shop on Etsy and purchase something from there!)
  6. If you see a homeless person on the street, especially in the cold weather, why not offer to buy them a hot drink? (Or buy a suspended coffee for a homeless person from your nearest participating cafe instead? Find your closest one here!)
  7. Sponsor an animal! (There are plenty of options for animal-lovers, like: sponsoring a guide dog, wild animal, or a pet in need of a home.)
  8. Find your local animal shelter, and see if they need help walking the dogs or tending to the cats.
  9. Arrange a coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support (Sign up here!)
  10. Clear out your wardrobe, and instead of selling unwanted clothes on eBay or Depop, donate them to a charity shop!

 

Do you have any other kind ideas to add to the list?
