Check out this gift guide which is all about kindness! 11 kindness gifts to inspire you and your family for your next random act of kindness!
One year for Valentine’s Day my kids and I all got matching shirts that read, “Kindness is Always in Style”. They were still young enough to want to wear matching shirts with their mom and their sibling. It was super cute (or so I thought) and inspiring for us. It was a literal reminder on our stomachs and when talking to each other.
