A Random Act of Kindness for Every Teacher

Tomorrow is February 17, National Random Acts of Kindness Day.  Educators are some of the hardest working individuals in the world and have the biggest impact on the future of our world.  And with all of the demands and challenges that teachers and administrators face, it's not only overwhelming.  It can be downright impossible for them to see the differences that they are making.  Educators often hear about it when they fail to reach their goal, but how often do they hear how much they're appreciated?

So here is my challenge.  

Let's let all educators feel the power of the most undervalued yet most powerful random act of kindness ever.  Sure, you may be thinking that I'm talking about money, gifts, A NEW CAR (in my Price is Right voice), or some other trinket of appreciation, but I'm not talking about that.  I'm talking about something bigger, something better.  Here's what I'm talking about.


Tomorrow, I challenge you to reach out to educators that impact your world, that spend more time with your kids than you do and let them know how awesome they are.  No complaints tomorrow.  Save that for February 18.  On Tuesday, February 17, show a random act of kindness to an educator.

Here's How You Can Show Your Appreciation for Educators

  • Pick up the Phone and give them a Call
  • Send a Surprise Email
  • Post on Facebook how much you appreciate a specific teacher(s)
  • If you have time, stop by the school and tell them thank you.
Educators do so many things behind the scenes that they will never be recognized for.  Tomorrow, February 17 is  our day to let them know just how great they are.  A random act of kindness is special because it's not expected.  It has the power to inspire and even change lives.

What do you say?  Will you join me?
