Delphis Eco is celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day on Friday, the 17th of February. Random Acts of Kindness Day is simply about brightening someone's day by giving and being kind, and we want everyone to get involved. So whether your act of kindness is carried out for a friend, for someone less fortunate than yourself, or even for the planet, this Friday, let's make kindness the norm. On this day, we have got our Delphis team giving something back to the community and the environment with a mission to clear up the streets by litter picking at our base in Bermondsey.
The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation has been set up as an experiment for individuals to explore how a random act of kindness can impact their mood and well-being. The Foundation seeks to demonstrate how connecting with other people, wildlife and the environment can boost your mood and make kindness contagious.
‘The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnesses the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to "pay it forward."’
- Jamil Zaki.
Below are some suggested acts of kindness which anyone can do to participate in this week:
- Registering to become an organ donor
- Donating blood
- Offering someone your seat on a busy train
- Asking to help a neighbour with their gardening
- Buying food for a homeless person
- Volunteering to clean an older person's home
- Going litter picking
- Babysitting (for free!)
Whatever your chosen act might be, if it’s wholesome and genuine, it will put a smile on someone's face. Remember, to kickstart a positive chain of events takes just one small action, so make your kindness count this Friday.
