The Random Acts team is pleased to announce a new initiative! We know that sometimes, our supporters are inspired to make the world a bit more kind – but aren’t sure about the next steps. What’s the best way to help? What should I be doing to help others?
The new #GetKind
program is here to help! Each month, we will have a new theme to inspire your kindness quotient. Please use the hashtag #GetKind
so we can share these great ideas, all year long!
February's theme is kindness to animals. Some ideas to get started:
Go for a walk – and take a dog with you.
Offer to walk dogs or play with cats at a local animal shelter.
Get the word out about adoptable pets in your area. Take photos and share them with local newspapers and pet advocacy groups or share them with your own friends who are looking for a new friend. Or use social media to get the word out!
Pick up a bag of food at your supermarket and drop it at your local shelter.
Ask you local shelter if they need help planning special events, like a fundraiser, a “Spay Day” or adoption event.
Plant wildlife-friendly plants in your garden and create a friendly place for winged visitors.
Do you neighbors need help with their pets? Offer to walk them each afternoon, brush their dog, or change a litter box and help both pet and owner.
There are so many ways to help animals! Let us know your great ideas. Need more inspiration? Check out the Random Acts forums. You can contact the Regional Representatives, find areas of the forum dedicated to your region, and view proposals and requests for help. Get out there and #GetKind
