For the past three years, during the month of December, I initiated my own project, which was appropriately hashtagged #25randomactsofkindness. What it entailed of was; from December 1st to December 25th, in anticipation of Christmas, I would go on a texting spree and blow up my friends’ phones with messages or pictures just to brighten up their day. It didn’t matter which holiday they celebrated. Even with some scattered days from time to time, and even if they didn’t respond back on that day, I could still feel that the task was succeeded and everyone was appreciative of the efforts.
This year I took a leave from that project. Mostly because after all this time, I ran out of new ideas and I didn’t want to keep reusing old ones. Plus, there’s only so much you can bring when you’re texting. So, instead, I complied a list of 25 random acts of kindness that can be done through texting as well as out in the real world. They are not limited to just the holiday season, there’s so much time in the year to do these anytime.
