Kindness Ideas

Performing an act of kindness can be as simple as helping your parents take out the trash or as elaborate as volunteering for a local non-profit.

To help you get started, below are just some examples of acts of kindness shared by other California residents.

Volunteer at your Local Food Bank

Neighborhood food banks are always looking for helpful volunteers from the local community, to assist with donating food, stocking shelves, or delivering food to those in need.

Adopt a U.S. Soldier

Volunteer for a non-profit that connects civilians with Service members fighting for our freedom abroad, to help them find support, friendship, and a much needed touch of home.

Help Around the House

An act of kindness can be as simple as assisting with chores around your home. Some chores can include taking out the garbage, mopping, cleaning your room, doing the dishes, and much more.

Help your Sibling with their Homework

If you notice your brother or sister is having trouble with their homework, you can offer your assistance. Not only will you be helping your sibling with their education, but you will be helping out your parents as well.

Tell your Parents Thank You

Our parents sacrificed a lot to make sure we were given the best possible childhood they could provide. That is why we should take some time to express our appreciation for everything they have done to make us who we are.

Donate Books to the Local Library

Do you have books lying around you don’t read anymore? Instead of discarding them in the trash, you can donate your used books to the local library. Even if it is just one book, your donation will go a long way in helping your library promote literacy throughout the community
