World Kindness Day
November 13th
Spread kindness like confetti! It doesn't have to be an elaborate action. Just a little gesture of kindness goes a long way! 
  • hold the door for someone
  • give a compliment
  • reach out to an elderly neighbor
  • leave a note for someone that says 'I think you are awesome'.

Gratitude Month
November is National Gratitude Month.
Gratitude is more than simply saying “thank you.” Gratitude has an amazing power to shift us from focusing on the negative to appreciating what is positive in our lives.
