Why not start the New Year with a happy note – like a Random Act of Kindness! This is where you go out of your way to do something helpful or nice for a friend or stranger. It creates the feeling of goodwill, community and just plain happiness!

These cards are great companion to your gesture, because it explains what you are doing and inspires others to do the same. You can carry some in your wallet, in your car, in your desk drawer at work and so on!

Before I go into the tutorial, here are some ideas for easy and fun Random Acts of Kindness!

  • When in a coffee drive-thru, buy the drink of the person behind you.
  • Buy an extra candy bar and leave it on your workplace’s lunchroom for someone to find.

  • Clean up after someone else.
  • Print out inspiring quotes and leave them in grocery baskets.
