NATIONAL DO SOMETHING NICE DAY – October 5
NATIONAL DO SOMETHING NICE DAY
Each year on October 5, people across the nation observe National Do Something Nice Day.
National Do Something Nice Day is very similar to National Random Acts of Kindness Day, which is celebrated on February 17.
It would be ideal if everyone lived their lives doing kind things on a daily basis and without thinking about it. Today serves as a reminder to us all, as it is easy to get caught up with hectic schedules and fast-paced lifestyles, to stop for a moment and do something nice.
“Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.” ~Frank A. Clark
HOW TO OBSERVE
Do something nice. The something can be anything from buying a cup of coffee for someone in line at the coffee shop to giving a compliment to the tired clerk. Maybe the day calls for sending flowers with a card that says “just because,” or asking the neighbors over for a barbecue in the backyard or mowing the lawn for someone. Use #DoSomethingNiceDay to post on social media.
