Sometimes it’s hard to think of ways to be kind to others. Here are the first 12 in our GenKind24 series of 24 ways to be kind to others.
Offer to babysit for someone so they can have an
evening to themselves.
Handwrite a love letter to your friends telling
them what they mean to you.
Say, “I love you” to your friends. It’s important
for them to hear it. Those words heal the soul.
Let someone go ahead of you in the checkout lane.
Offer to pick up groceries for a new neighbor, a
new friend, or for anyone who just might need a break.
Forgive a friend who was being a jerk and didn’t
mean to hurt you. Everyone makes colossal
mistakes sometimes, and your forgiveness could
mean the world to them.
Ask someone how they’re doing and then genuinely
listen. Put your phone away first!
Make and freeze a meal for someone, for no
reason at all. Surprise them with it.
Load a parking meter for the next person, or pay the
toll for the person behind you.
Leave a flower or a note on a park bench, for a stranger.
Donate your child’s gently used toys to a local
hospital or shelter.
Take a treat in to your co-workers.
