Spread some kindness this month and pass it on
On World Kindness Day small gestures can make ripples of kindness which can, in turn, create a wave of care across our community. As well as doing good for others, random acts of kindness can give you a warm fuzzy glow all day long!
This November Saint Michael’s is inviting you to make someone’s day or make a difference in your community by doing a good deed and inspiring others to get involved.
Here’s how the Saint Michael’s Pass it on! Challenge works:
- From Nov 13, do a good turn, whether it’s visiting a neighbour, making a brew or baking a cake for workmates, or picking up litter in your street. Some simple ideas are included at the bottom of this post.
Post on social media to share your random act of kindness with the world - you can use the following text, remembering to add in your good deed and tag someone.
“I’m taking part in Saint Michael’s Pass it on! Challenge to help spread care and kindness in my community!
