With Valentine's day this weekend, let's all share a little extra love.
On Fridays we share with you five of our favorite kind acts, quotes, videos, ideas, and more. Have a kindness story or idea you'd like to share, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the headline: Five Kind Things Friday.
1. Make a DIY toy for your pet.
I've made pom poms from yarn myself and these are super easy. A quick 5-10 minute DIY. These are perfect to make your special kitty happy.
2. Ellen speaking out on kindness in People's Choice Humanitarian award speech. Because we ALL love Ellen. She's raised $12.5 million for breast cancer research, $10 million for survivors of Hurricane Katrina; she's given $1.7 million to schools, $21.6 to charity, and $35 million to her own viewers in need.
Fun fact: she grew up in New Orleans. I'm a little partial to celebs from my home state :).
'Kindness is something that we should all have. That's an innate quality that we have, and we need more of that out there.' -Ellen Degeneres
3. A quote from The Doll Kind's Instagram this week.
4. A last minute kid's Valentines craft. We love this heart fingerprint bookmark for many reasons... It's quick and if you are a parent 'last minute' is likely your middle name, it's inexpensive and you likely already have the craft supplies for it, it's easy enough for toddlers, and it's a great gift for any of their loved ones from Dad to Grandma to their best buds.
Happy Friday friends!
Be kind and change the world!
