Yesterday, I noticed something a little different in the air. As I went on with my day, working and running errands, I noticed extra smiles, a few more people holding the door for one another and I even heard of some extra special deeds that were done all for the purpose of brightening a stranger’s day. You may have noticed this yourself and wondered, “why all the extra love?” Well, yesterday, as a nation, we celebrated Random Act of Kindness Day. This day is set aside as a special day to show our compassion and love for others by completing, well, random acts of kindness. Maybe it was a coincidence that I noticed this extra kindness around me or, maybe I was subconsciously looking for it. Maybe, just maybe, this day actually inspired others to show a little extra kindness to one another. I choose to believe the latter.
At Makes Scents Natural Spa Line, we decided to celebrate this special day by using our social media channels to spread a little TLC (and some amazing products too). As a company, we decided to choose three random fans from our Facebook page and send them a special gift with only one string attached. The three fans who were chosen must promise to “pay it forward” by completing a random act of kindness in the upcoming few weeks. This act can be big or small, free or monetary-based. As long as it comes from the heart, that is all that counts.
So without further ado, let’s announce our three special
Random Act of Kindness winners!
