Random Acts of Kindness Ideas
Our family has done this several times as a great way to spend a day together and to help bless and share with others (always being careful not to offend anyone when giving monetarily). As parents, we would match the dollar amount that the kids wanted to share/give away of their personal money. We would all wear Santa hats and hit the road looking for ways to help others. One year, we felt we had hit the jackpot when we saw an elderly lady with a flat-tire! J
