Random Acts of Kindness for the Run up to the Holidays ...

One of my favorite things about the holiday 🎇 season is how much warmer, happier and more giving everyone can be. Now's the time ⏰ to focus on what really matters: Treating others with respect and kindness. One 1️⃣ of the ways we can do that is by expressing our gratitude not just to our family 👨‍👨‍👦‍👦 and friends but to total strangers too! An advent calendar 📆 is the perfect 👌 way to do this. The best part is that you can even continue checking ☑️ off this list well past New Year's. The truth is that we can all benefit from a little kindness 365 days a year.
