From our Community: Sharing Random Acts of Kindness in Pure Michigan

Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day in the United States – a day when people are encouraged to perform good deeds for no reason. To get into the spirit, we asked fans on our Facebook page: “What are some Pure Michigan elements you could incorporate into your random act?”

Here are some of our favorite ideas. Thanks to everyone who responded, and enjoy sharing kind deeds today and every day!

    Shovel someone’s snow in winter or rake leaves in the fall.  Volunteer year round.  Don’t wait for one day – Random Acts of Kindness or Make a Difference Day – give of yourself everyday.
