Blessing Others

Random Act of Kindness #15

A few days ago a friend of mine was asking for donations for a church project where they were gathering items to share with children entering the foster care system. He listed specific items needed and I knew this would become another Random Act of Kindness. Now I know I have posted before about donating items (see Random Act of Kindness #7), but this request was near and dear to my heart for several reasons:

  • My dear cousin Amy (and her brother David) were foster care kids, adopted with love into our family;
  • My best friend Lisa adopted two of her four children from the foster care system;
  • My sister donated many personal care/beauty products to my Celebrate Kindness project, which I had already planned to use as “blessing bags” for anyone that needed them.

I gathered blankets, made blessing bags, and had the children choose their favorite stuffed animals to donate to the cause.

I passed along our blessings of kindness to James, and gave him my business card so he could pay it forward, too.

Little things we take for granted, such as warm blankets and cuddly stuffed animals, can absolutely make a positive impact in someone’s day. It doesn’t take much to make a child feel loved and important. What can YOU do to bless someone with kindness? Be inspired! 🙂
