But, of course! It’s “Be Kind To Humankind” week. Last year we promoted this “kind” observance with a week-long project. This year, however, we will be publishing one post, and challenging you to create your own personal “bk2hk” week. We are asking you to get your kindhearted nature on. Support this cause by raising your awareness to kind acts that you can perform everyday — making you one super-duper “kind” villager.
So what exactly is “bk2hk” week???
It is a celebration of people and the kind acts they perform all over the globe. Started by Lorraine Jara from Toms River, New Jersey 26 years ago, and it is still going strong with the message that kindness can enrich our lives if we decide to think…speak…act kindly.
Okay … back to the challenge. Try to consciously act a bit kinder this week with the themes per the “bk2hk” website that are listed below.
YES. We are a bit late…better late than never, right???
Here’s the list. Good luck!
* Sacrifice Our Wants For Others Needs Sunday
* Motorist Consideration Monday
* Touch-A-Heart Tuesday
* Willing-To-Lend-A-Hand Wednesday
* Thoughtful Thursday
* Forgive Your Foe Friday
* Speak Kind Words Saturday
AND … why an animal in this pic???
Because kids, Dora is the one of the best examples of what “bk2hk” is all about. She is NEADS dog, which is a highly skilled assistance dog for people who are Deaf or have disabilities. Dora assists Mary Ann De Meo, Technical Services Librarian, in making her life run a little easier by being her ears in the world in which we exist.
Now that’s what we call KIND!
It’s what the WORLD needs now…it’s what we all need now.
Take the challenge and notice how your heart starts to sing, stress melts away and how your week flows like a lazy creek taking you downstream to the weekend…aaahhhh.
Decide to be kind.
Making a difference one dog at a time.
