National Love People Day Activities
Random Acts of Kindness: You can show love to anyone, a friend or stranger, by offering kindness in a random act. Some examples may be, leaving money on a vending machine for someone, volunteering at a homeless shelter, donating blood at a blood bank, or paying for the order of someone behind you in a drive thru. No matter how big or small the act, it matters just the same. Random acts of kindness are one of the best and easiest ways to express love to people you don’t know and to remind the people in your life that you love them and are thinking about them.
Create Art: Art can be an effective way to celebrate National Love People Day. You can write a poem for your spouse, gift a painting to a friend, or make a card for a neighbor. Art can be a thoughtful, personal way to show someone they are loved.
Be kind: Using kind words to everyone you encounter can be the nicest, simplest way to commemorate National Love People Day. Being kind doesn’t cost you any money, labor, or time. Give a stranger a compliment, surprise a grandparent with a phone call, go visit your parents, show everyone compassion, and say please and thank you. The little things and kind words can make someone’s day.
