National Random Acts of Kindness Week - Week of February 17


The week of February 17 is Random Act of Kindness Week.

Winter is getting long for you and that person behind you in line at the coffee shop. So perk it up by doing something nice for them. The goal of Random Act of Kindness Week is to change schools, the workplace, families, and society through kindness.
