Preparing for Random Acts of Christmas Kindness

Pursuit of Pink Random Acts of Christmas Kindness

During November and December when we focus on being thankful and gift giving to those we love, I also want my daughter to focus on spreading kindness around like wildfire. We have been very blessed in so many ways and it is my hope that my child will learn this at a very early age so she can spread cheer to others always.

Last year, I introduced Kendall to 25 Random Acts of Christmas Kindness (RACK) in December leading up to Christmas Day. I got the idea after following fellow blogger, Molly, and decided immediately that my family would take part. I chronicled our 25 acts on facebook for everyone to see. I certainly hope we encouraged others to perform random acts of kindness as Molly did for us!

As I prepared for this year, I started talking about the Random Acts of Christmas Kindness with Kendall at the beginning of November. I reminded her of some of the fun things we did last year and asked her what she wanted to do this year. Her first thought was to take some of her own money out of her piggy bank and buy toys for kids who don't have any. You better believe that tears sprang to this mama's eyes! Do you see how easy it is to get your kids to care and want to give? You just have to show them.

This year, I thought it would be fun to share in advance our plans for Random Acts of Christmas Kindness. I would LOVE IT if lots of you loyal readers would take part in RACK this year. My entire life's mission is to make people feel loved and to spread happiness, so why don't we all participate together?

Below is our schedule for each random act. You can follow along exactly or create your own list. The point is just to bless others! I'll include an image at the bottom of this post that you can save to your phone to refer back to later.

If you participate, I'd love you to share it on social media. Use the hashtag #PursuitofPinkRACK so I can see who is joining in on the kindness.
