Random acts of kindness are wonderful, but what about the people that are already in our lives? What about the causes we already care about? While we should continue expanding beyond our personal bubbles, it’s also important not to overlook the people that are right under our noses. The ideas below may require a level of thoughtfulness and commitment, but they are not impossible. Though some call for financial offering, not all do. You can always think of creative ways to spend less while helping others too. The ideas are also relationship-based meaning that they will encourage you to practice kindness as much as possible, beyond a random act and beyond a one time thing. As the saying goes, in helping others, we help ourselves.
