This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Ontario, Canada, where students from  Baxter Central Public School performed random acts of kindness by releasing balloons into the air. Students attached a note to each balloon with a suggested random act of kindness for whoever finds the balloon to carry out. Some examples of random acts that students wrote down were:  holding doors for people, saying hi to strangers to brighten their day, and leaving $20 at a coffee shop register so people can have free coffee until it runs out. Grade 8 student Felicity Darcy said:

“The guerilla kindness really worked for us and left a good impact on the school.”

We think this is an exciting way to spread kindness! Check out the rest of this article to read more great quotes from the students.
