Throw kindness around like confetti! — Anonymous
“We’re doing it with the hopes that it will make somebody’s day a little brighter.”
Over one hundred handcrafted bunnies found their way to new homes thanks to Jonya Pacey and her friends. Although they live in five different states, the crafty group worked together to create dozens of stuffed bunnies to distribute in their neighborhoods for Random Acts’ Annual Melee of Kindness (AMOK) weekend.
With a little help from Random Acts, Jonya and her friends collected supplies and then started sewing. “We actually made 108 bunnies over three gatherings,” Jonya writes. “It was inspiration from the website Urban Threads called ‘The Giving Bunny Project…Basically, you make and then release these small cloth bunnies into the world for people to find and take home. We’re doing it with the hopes that it will make somebody’s day a little brighter.”
Each cloth rabbit was tied with a tag that read, “This bunny was made for you with love — you can take it home” and included details regarding Random Acts on the other side.” To read more about this amazing act of kindness, drop by our blog.
P.S. Have an idea for an awesome act of kindness? Head over and fill out an act proposal form — we offer financial assistance to those who need it to complete their equally amazing projects.
Sometimes the smallest acts of kindness can mean the most.
Kindness counts. Always.
P.S. If you’d like to share a little virtual kindness today, don’t forget our e-kindness cards. They’re fun, free, and guaranteed to brighten someone’s day.
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. — Maya Angelou
Consider this simple truth: If we all do one random act of kindness daily, that’s 365 random acts of kindness in a year for each and every person.
Every act of kindness counts - no matter the size. Open a door, send someone a kind anonymous comment, pick up some litter, or just smile. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make the most difference.
So let’s get out there and do some good this weekend and every, single day. We are conquering the world one random act of kindness at a time.
