Share Kindness Kits

Create Random Acts of Generosity Kits filled with uplifting notes, ideas on how to pay-it-forward, or any heartwarming tokens you desire. Ideas for things to include:

  • a bus card or restaurant certificate in a small amount with instructions to pass it on
  • a list of ideas for acts of kindness
  • a greeting card someone can fill out and give away
  • a cheerful quote about giving
  • a GivingTuesday pin or sticker

Host a party to assemble the kits or inspire volunteers to craft these kits from their homes. Then surprise your community by distributing them in a variety of locations across town.

Pictured above: The GivingTuesdayIndia team set a wonderful example by distributing these kits on the metro last year, igniting a ripple of generosity and offering riders a dose of joy on an otherwise mundane Tuesday.
