My adult kids, kids-in-love, and I participated in the project last year (Join the 100 Acts of Kindness Project and Make the World a Happier Place with Acts of Kindness). We’re participating again this year. Weekly kindness challenges are posted every Monday morning (including mine next Monday). Here’s this week’s challenge: Kindness Challenge #1: Saying Thank You.
