A random act of kindness has the power to change lives, and our real estate agents
believe that kindness is a gift that we can give no matter the time or place. Now more than ever, it's important that we all take a moment to share kindness with our families, friends, and neighbors. Here are five easy ways you can spread kindness in Chattanooga right now!
1. Donate to a Food Bank
Unfortunately, many men, women, and children in our state go to bed hungry every night. Thankfully, food banks can provide these families with the nutrition they need. If you have any canned or non-perishable foods that you can spare, consider donating them to the Chattanooga Area Food Bank
. Another great idea is to intentionally purchase groceries that are on sale — like Buy-One-Get-One-Free products — and donate the second item to those in need.
2. Foster a Pet
We must also not forget about the many neglected animals that need our love, too. Pet adoption agencies, like McKamey Animal Center
, are saving animals by finding them loving homes with Chattanooga families. If you're unable to adopt one of these friendly animals, consider fostering a pet temporarily until they're paired with a responsible owner. Fostering a pet allows them to spend less time in shelter cages and more time in loving homes.
3. Help a Neighbor
You don't need to go far to find an opportunity to give an act of kindness — just look next door! Helping your neighbor is a great way to bring a smile to their face, especially if they're unable to complete certain chores without assistance. Buy their next round of groceries, mow their lawn, help them with a home improvement project, or offer to babysit. No matter who lives next door, there's surely something that they could use a hand with, offering you a perfect opportunity to extend your kindness.
4. Pay It Forward in the Drive-Thru
Looking for a fun and quick way to commit a random act of kindness? Pay it forward in the drive-thru! Next time you grab a bite to eat or a cup of coffee, tell the drive-thru clerk that you'd also like to pay for the order of the vehicle behind you. Believe it or not, this often sets off a long chain of people who will continue to pay this act of kindness forward by paying for the car behind them. Imagine it — your single, small act of kindness can spread to dozens of people almost immediately!
5. Write Thank You Notes to Teachers & Other Important Figures
Sometimes, the best way to extend your kindness is to simply show your gratitude to those in your life. Consider writing thank you letters with your children for their teachers, coaches, or caretakers. These individuals care deeply about your children and put forth a lot of effort to help them grow and succeed. By writing them sincere thank you letters, you'll give them a gift of kindness that they'll treasure forever.
