I created this deck of cards after a day of intense anxiety that a stranger made better for me simply with her kindness – I didn’t get the chance to say thank you, in spite how much I wanted to and I remember thinking that I wish I could just pass her a note.
And then I thought: Why not?
That’s how the Random Acts of Kindness Cards were born. I wanted a way to be kind to people but I also know that I’m just not the type to be able to walk up and engage with a stranger. (Thanks social anxiety.) It’s hard to want to make a difference to other people (even a little one) when your brain makes it difficult to talk.
These cards include thank-yous – for those wonderful angels we meet in our everyday life that just make things easier. It includes pick-me-ups for those strangers that just look they could use a hug. And it contains cards that let someone else know that the free coffee or meal you just gave them is a random act of kindness just because.
Let’s be kind.
