Commit some random acts of kindness

To the editor:

A simple gesture, a kind word, or a random act of kindness can go a long way.

The Alexandria Kiwanis Club is sponsoring the annual Random Act of Kindness Week, February 23-March 1, an effort to being aware of the power of kindness.

Acts of kindness are powerful and are contagious! We hope everyone will purposefully perform random acts of kindness until they become second nature, knowing that others may follow that lead and pass it on.

As part of the week-long celebration, our students were invited to participate in a Random Acts of Kindness drawing contest, with ribbons awarded to the top two drawings. The contest is an effort to get children thinking about what constitutes an act of kindness, and how such acts make them feel. Each year, more than 1,000 drawings are entered into the contest.

By observing this special week, it is our hope that people take the initiative to commit some random acts of kindness and to become more conscientious of the needs of others.

Commit a random act of kindness today!
