Hey friends! Were you were around when we talked about International random acts of kindness week, last year here at She Lives Free? Well I thought it’d be fun to do something a little different this year for Make A Difference Mondays this time 🙂 I wanted to share some basic info in case you aren’t familiar with it, and then pass along some great posts on kindness from some members of the Make A Difference Mondays community on Facebook.
From randomactsofkindness.org, “International Random Acts of Kindness Week is February 9-15, 2015. Take this week to step out of your normal routine or comfort zone and attempt a new random act of kindness each day of the celebratory week. Post and share your stories, photos, videos and ideas on our social media channels.” With downloadable bookmarks & cards and much more, the site is full of lots of other valuable information and fun ideas to celebrate this week!

Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose by making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!
Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link up any blog post that encourages women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!
Also, just a heads-up: we have created two fun new ways to keep us all connected! Now we have our own Facebook community group to stay in touch beyond the blog posts AND we also have a new #MADMlinkup group Pinterest board and we will be pinning our favorite posts from the linkup that inspire and encourage us to make a difference. We are so grateful for you and would love for all of you to join us for fellowship in the above linked community group and you can follow the Pinterest board right here to watch for your posts:

I love doing little intentional acts of kindness – it’s my love language! And, just last week, I was on the receiving end! I was going about my day and had pulled into the Chick-fil-A drive through to grab a quick lunch. As I pulled up to the window to pay, the cashier smiled and said the gentleman in the truck in front of me had paid for my lunch. Such a sweet, unexpected act of kindness that absolutely made my day! I can’t wait to pay it forward!
That is so awesome! Love that you can’t wait to pay it forward 🙂
I love everything about this post! I shared it on my business and personal fb pages and I can’t wait to finish reading all the links and start the acts of kindness! The link for kids is awesome!!!!
Awe you are just the sweetest! Thank you so much for your encouraging support Katie!
Thanks for including us, friend! 🙂 I’m excited to check out the other links.
Anytime, friend! 🙂
Thanks for hosting. I’m reading “The Five Love Languages of Teens” and I can see where a couple of my children have gifts as a primary love language.
You are very welcome! Sounds like a great book 🙂
So since it is the week where love letters are missives of grace that we get to share with others, my youngest and perhaps my most joy-filled child, has made it her personal mission to give a valentine to as many Nursing Home Residents she can. Every time I walk into a room, she is cutting and pasting and scribbling. She has decorated a box and and carries it with her, along with supplies to entreat help with her mission wherever she goes. Her joy in this is contagious and inspiring.
Dawn that is absolutely amazing – please tell your daughter she has inspired me too! Such love! Amazing how kids can re-energize and encourage our own hearts for serving others 🙂
