Random act of kindness Friday: Giving back

Woman in the rain

Happy Friday! It’s number 16 for my random acts of kindness Fridays. I’m hoping that some of you will join me, even if you don’t post or talk about it. Let’s make this world slightly nicer one day at a time!

Today is “giving back” day for me. There are many ways to give back by getting involved in community or charity work, either through giving personal time, fundraising, donating, organizing events…the list is endless. I have specific charities and organizations I support (the list seems to keep growing as I just added a new one last week!).

I’m donating clothes today. I went through my closet to do some late spring cleaning, and let me say that this took far longer than I had hoped! But I found a lot of items to donate (some new) to an organization that provides professional clothing and accessories to women looking for work. Dress for Success is a global organization with local chapters that I go through.

I am also going to give some accessories to a local small consignment shop that recently opened in the city to support the owner’s new business.

Have a beautiful day! If you decide to do a #randomactsofkindness of your own, whatever you choose to do, I hope it puts a smile on their face!
