Day 17: Spread Love Like Jelly Challenge (Leap Day Love) Leap of Kindness Day

Day 17: Spread Love Like Jelly Challenge (Leap Day Love)

Today as we #spreadlovelikejelly I’m inspired by LEAP DAY! We get 366 days this year to choose joy and spread love. That’s awesome. How we choose to spend this extra day matters too! This morning, I’m proud to say I’m from New York when I noticed several New York State towns banding together to share love and spread kindness.

Today, I challenge you to use your extra day to spread love however you can.

I noticed my friend from Saratoga, NY posting a photo on Facebook this morning indicating that she was doing something kind for her children’s teachers with #leapofkindnessday. I was impressed. I loved it. I wanted to participate too.

So I started to do some research and was really happy to find that the entire town of Saratoga was participating in a pay-it-forward style day of kindness. You can see what they are up to on their website. All over the town people were delivering cookies to fire departments and going out of their way to spread some cheer and good will.

I think its awesome to take advantage of having an extra day in the year to choose to be more kind to those around us. What a fantastic celebration! You can check out what else is happening in Saratoga on their Facebook page and also tell them what you’ve been up to by tagging your social media posts with #leapofkindnessday. There’s a pretty great news story about it here.

I looked around further to see that Canandaigua, NY had also jumped on the band wagon for making today an extra day of charity and kindness.#leapofkindnessday #spreadlovelikejelly

Today I did not have lots of time to prepare for this as I just read about it this morning. So my contributions were just adding better coffee and creamer to the staff lounge for my coworkers. We generally get Folgers coffee for free, but no one really cares for it. So I stopped on the way in to get some yummier blends.  However, I plan to try to make today great by including as much kindness as I can into my day. What will you do?

Thank you so much for participating in the link-up! and I LOVE THIS SO MUCH – I have a little “dream” ministry that I’ve been trying to get off the ground focusing on friendships, and this just makes me smile and gives me encouragement that kindness DOES matter!! I can’t wait to read more in your series 🙂

    What a wonderful way to use the “extra day” this year. So many people forget to be kind to one another. Such a great way to bless others. Thanks for joining us on Life is Lovely!

  5. What a great idea! We have no idea what a simple gesture of kindness can mean to someone. It is important to use our extra day and our lives really to spread love. Great way to raise awareness:) #lifeislovely
