Here at B kind, we are proud to support different foundations through charity donations. Even just a dollar is worth a lot, especially to those in need. That is why we offer direct donations or indirect donations by buying awesome merchandise to gift yourself or others! All proceeds from our gift shop go right to the foundation we are supporting, so you can break out a new shirt while also feeling good that your money is going into something that will help change the world.

Why Supporting Charities is So Important

Supporting charities is a great thing to do, especially when you want to make a positive impact. However, we wanted to give you a souvenir for your charity donation, so not only can you spread the word of kindness but you can have something that will be useful in your daily lives. Live somewhere where the sun is constantly making you sweat? We have a water bottle to keep you cool, hats to create some shade, and t-shirts that are lightweight. If you don’t want clothes, we have stickers, magnets, pencil cases, and notepads, so no matter what you choose, it’ll be part of your daily activities!

Finding places to donate can be a bit difficult, especially when you don’t know where to look. That is why at B kind, we offer a variety of products to raise charity donations for different foundations. It helps spread the word and gives you something in return (we love giving back)! Even just purchasing a $3 item goes a long way for our charity. Plus, feel free to check out the charities we’re supporting on our website. It’s a great way to find new charities to donate to annually as well as find events that may be happening in your area that you can come out to and support.

What Our Mission Means for Kindness

Our mission is to encourage kindness every day, so if you’re looking for a new shirt or a new hat, feel free to buy it from us; we ensure that your money will make a difference in others’ lives. It’s even a great conversation starter when you wear our merchandise around! It will encourage you and others to B kind every day to one another. It’s also a great gift to family or friends this upcoming holiday season. You will be gifting two people at once with your purchase, our charity, and your family/friend!

How Can You Get Involved?

One of the foundations we are supporting right now is Morgan’s Message. It’s an amazing cause that strives to bring awareness towards mental health among student-athletes. The goal is to recognize, discuss, and support athletes who suffer from mental health alone and in silence. You can check out all about Morgan’s Message here, as well as podcasts you can listen to and key initiatives so you can better understand where our merchandise money goes! If this is a foundation you would love to get behind, check out our merchandise on our website; all of our proceeds will go there!

Our mission at B kind is to encourage acts of kindness in our everyday lives. These acts don’t have to be a big act of kindness. The smallest acts are the ones that we want to celebrate. These acts are the ones we want to recognize and build a community around. One small act can change someone’s life but it can also change the world.

Small Acts of Kindness

A small act can be something as simple as complimenting the first three people that you talk to for the day. This is not only going to make you feel better about saying something kind. This small compliment could make the person actually feel better and give them a smile for the day.

Or if you don’t want to talk to someone, you can easily send them a text. The key is to make this text positive so someone will smile when they see that small message. Frequently, just a nudge of encouragement can help steer people toward a more positive day. These both are small ideas but if you want to do something bigger that is always an option too. If impacting one person is “easy” for you, then we’re sure multiple people can benefit from your random act of kindness.

Donating Time, Goods, and Services

Another large-impact-gesture could be to donate old towels or blankets to an animal shelter. Donating something that you might not use, with or without knowing how great an impact it may have, will make you feel good about helping. Brain imaging studies have demonstrated the joys of giving.

Want to make an impact in a different way? You could help clean up a park or even the beach. Cleaning up the beach or the park will take away some of the litter. This will not only be good for you but also for the environment. But it will also make an impact on the environment because that litter will not decompose into the ground. We don’t want to have that decomposing (or, lack of decomposing!) to have pollutants filtering into the ground.

Impactful Actions

If these acts are a path that you want to take to make an impact, these are other ways to move forward. We have an online store where you can purchase B kind merchandise to help our mission. Not only will this support our mission but also help the charity that we are supporting for the year too.

These donations help fund charities the foundation is supporting yearly as well as special projects. Every small act is working toward our mission. We want to get everyone excited about these small random acts of kindness. Making these small acts a part of your life is going to make you feel more positive and excited about helping people. You can start small and grow as you feel more confident with accomplishing these acts of kindness.

We look forward to seeing you performing these small random acts of kindness and making an impact on the world in your own way!

Random Acts of Kindness Day is celebrated on February 17th every year, and it is a day dedicated to spreading kindness and compassion. The day is all about performing acts of kindness for strangers, loved ones, or even yourself, without expecting anything in return. In this blog post, we will explore the history of Random Acts of Kindness Day, the benefits of kindness, examples of random acts of kindness, and some of our favorite annual events!

History of Random Acts of Kindness Day

Random Acts of Kindness Day was first introduced in 1995 by a nonprofit organization called the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation. The foundation was created by a group of people who wanted to promote kindness and compassion in the world. The day was established to encourage people to perform random acts of kindness for others and to spread love and positivity in the world.

Benefits of Kindness

Performing acts of kindness has numerous benefits for both the giver and the receiver. Kindness can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also increase happiness, self-esteem, and overall well-being. Kindness can strengthen relationships, improve teamwork, and create a sense of community. Being kind to others can also inspire others to perform acts of kindness, creating a ripple effect of positivity.

Examples of Random Acts of Kindness

There are countless ways to perform acts of kindness on Random Acts of Kindness Day. Some examples include:

  • Paying for someone’s coffee or meal
  • Holding the door open for someone
  • Giving someone a compliment
  • Writing a letter of appreciation to a loved one
  • Donating clothes or food to a shelter
  • Volunteering at a local charity
  • Leaving a generous tip for a server

Notable Annual Events

There are several annual events that take place on Random Acts of Kindness Day. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • The 24-hour Kindness Challenge: This is an online event that encourages participants to perform as many acts of kindness as possible in 24 hours.
  • The Kindness Rocks Project: This project involves painting rocks with inspiring messages and leaving them in public places for others to find.
  • The Great Kindness Challenge: This is a school-wide event (over 39,000 schools and counting!) that encourages students to perform acts of kindness for others and to create a positive school culture.

Random Acts of Kindness Day is a day dedicated to promoting kindness and compassion in the world. By performing acts of kindness for others, we can improve our own well-being and create a ripple effect of positivity. Whether it’s paying for someone’s coffee or volunteering at a local charity, every act of kindness matters. Let’s spread kindness and make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time.
