Take the DGT™ Valentine Kindness Challenge
Make February a month of generosity!
There is no better time to focus your family on sending ripples of kindness through your community.
With this downloadable list full of creative - and simple - daily acts of kindness, your family is sure to launch a lifelong habit of doing good, together!
Print the #28Days of Kindness for Families and post it somewhere you'll be sure to see it. In the event of a leap year, check out our #29Days of Kindness. How do you like your bonus kindness activity?
Make time for each day's challenge. If you need to swap days or complete multiple tasks on the weekend, that's OK. The goal is to complete one each day, but be flexible, and make that part of your reflection.
Make time to reflect.
At the end of each day ask, discuss how the assigned task worked for each of member of your family.
How would you feel if someone shared today's kindness with you?
What was your favorite item in the challenge?
Which tasks were most difficult to complete? Which were the easiest?
What are some other ways we could share kindness every day?
