Here are some great ways to spread kindness and cheer throughout our community. There are always people in need who will appreciate a kind gesture.
1. Suspended Coffee & Food
Ask the coffee shop if they offer Suspended Coffees. If they do you can purchase 1 or more to be given to someone in need that day.
This simple gesture can warm up someone's belly and spirits.
Suspended food works the same way. You can advance purchase a food item and the shop will give it to someone in need.
2. Create a Kindness or Blessing Bag
You've seen people holding signs asking for money for food. If you don't like shelling out change you can create kindness bag and leave it in the car with you and give it to those in need.
A Kindness bag can hold anything you like: from apples, granola bars, warm socks, Kleenex, toiletries. Things that a homeless person will surely need and appreciate.
3. Volunteer your time
