Spread Love on Good Samaritan Day

Carry out selfless acts throughout March, but especially on the 13th- Good Samaritan Day. Kindness should always be celebrated! However, I adore the idea of actively seeking out ways to spread joy. I have this belief that we all carry around empty buckets of love, and to fill our own, we must fill others. It’s a win-win; we feel good, they feel good. Here are some ways to spread love through March

  • Pay it forward in the drive-through line
  • Complement your cashier
  • Let someone go ahead of you in the checkout line
  • Donate blood
  • Bake a treat for your neighbors/ coworkers
  • Pick up trash
  • Call a family member you don't speak to a lot
  • Clean out your closet and donate to a local charity
  • Leave post-it affirmations around your house and office
  • Return your shopping cart to the corral
