Practicing Kindness: Session 3 Week 2

“Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change.” – Bob Kerrey

Couldn’t we all benefit from a little more kindness? The ES Heroes are practicing intentional kindness this session, and making the world a better place in the process! In Squads, they have devised projects to bring joy to others whether family/friend or stranger, local or international community. Some projects include: filling a backpack for someone without a home, making dog treats for the humane shelter, and designing cards for family and friends. One group showed great creativity by attaching kind notes to chilly ice cream bars for firefighters who, granted, have to deal with a lot of heat!

Providing advice can be an act of kindness

The Heroes will also be able to show their gratitude for each other in the Secret Snowflake Book Exchange. A fun tradition- each Hero secretly picked a book for a fellow traveler and when the books arrive, they’ll write a dedication to that Hero and wrap up the present for gifting on the last day of the session.

A thought to leave with you in this holiday season: is it better to be kind or honest? One Hero tackled this question with the concise answer, “Can’t you do both?”
