Activity - Make a Difference Day!

Call it "Make A Difference" "Pay it Forward" or a "Random Act of Kindness" - today (Saturday, October 22) is National Make A Difference Day!


Random acts of kindness don't have to be big.  They are as simple as giving someone an unexpected compliment, inviting someone to have an ice cream cone, doing yardwork for an elderly neighbor, making someone feel special or beautiful or loved.  The person who does the random act of kindness doesn't expect anything in return - they just want to make the world a better place.  They want to make a difference!
