Jetting Around The World

A few years ago, my husband and I started writing a series of childrens books called "Jett Around the World". The series is about a boy who travels to a different city in each book, with the intention of teaching kids about the world around them. What started as a business idea quickly evolved and the social worker in me urged us...

Taking It All For Granted

Yesterday was Valentine's Day and I woke up to -9 degrees outside. Scrolling through social media, I saw that a friend had posted about some things a homeless shelter needed. As I sat in my warm house, I became upset with myself for taking heat for granted. I got dressed and went right to the store. I took all the...

Partnering in Kindness

Last December I decided that I needed to do more to spread kindness as the world around me seemed to be so filled with negativity and anger. So, I started a 2015 Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) group and my friends jumped on board. Every day for the month of December, we all found ways to spread kindness. Sometimes it...

Honesty Matters

I was at the beach one day. When I came back to my car, I found a big white scratch down the side of it. There was a note on my windscreen apologising for it and providing the phone number of the person responsible. Just the note alone was enough for me to know what I was going to do....

My first experience with RAK

February 14 - 20, 2016 is designated Random Acts of Kindness week. No, it's not another Hallmark creation to move RAK greeting cards, nor has Laura Secord launched a new line of choccies just in time for RAK. It's a creation brought to my attention by my cousin-in-law, Steffi Black.

Kate, Gabriel, Samuel, and I have been the recipients of...

The Happiness Ninja

Early one morning in June 2015, I awoke with a fabulous idea: to buy a ninja costume, dress up in it, and conduct random acts of kindness on the streets. I did and continue to still do!

My first RAK was in Townsille, North Queensland, Australia. I handed out free bottles of water to people on top of Castle Hill,...

RANDOM WORD OF KINDNESS by Donna Fentanes

Valentine’s Day is Sunday. Isn’t that a great holiday? A holiday dedicated to showing our loved ones how much they mean to us. We have St. Valentine, an early Christian martyr, to thank for it. His letter to a young girl, before he was executed, is one of the alleged origins of this day. Valentine’s Day, now, for the most...

The act of kindness that I never expected

I was out shopping for my dad. She let me go by myself, so that meant I could listen to my music on my phone. Depressing, ~sad~ music. I was very depressed, thinking that the world was completely messed up and generally feeling really sad and worried. I arrived at the shopping centre and went to buy what my dad...
