Random Acts of Kindness Day encourages us all to get out there and be the light you want to see in the world.
Most people have heard the ancient saying “it’s better to give than receive”. This has now been proved scientifically. Recent research indicates that spending money on others rather than our selves provides those feel-good moments we all long for.
The results of a study published by the American Psychological Association found that people experience a “warm glow” when they put the needs of others before their own. People who remembered spending money on someone else felt happier than those who recalled spending money on themselves,” the study reported.
On Random Acts of Kindness Day on February 17th, people all over the globe will be encouraged to give to others be that a smile, a small favour or a gift.
Michael Kenton of Peace Gifts Shop says “Often, it’s the smallest act that makes the biggest impact, a simple gift with a beautiful message can transform a day, and make a life seem that much brighter”.
The charity Abrahamic Reunion England has used the opportunity to showcase the product range in its international Peace Gifts Shop – which can be found at www.peacegifts.shop. This design is available on a wide variety of gifts including T shirts, mugs and badges.
The Abrahamic Reunion England, the organization which promotes harmony in our multi-faith society, has chosen the run up to Random Acts of Kindness Day to encourage people to give meaningful gifts. These include items which typically feature a quote about peace from influential poets and authors from around the globe. The peaceful phrases and images which are seen on products such as mugs and t-shirts can help people achieve a calm and joyful state of mind ahead of Random Acts of Kindness Day.
Michael Kenton, trustee of the Charity Abrahamic Reunion England said: To quote Mahatma Gandhi. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
