This Random Act of Kindness is something everyone can do. It is really great too because you can leave some in your car to pass out whenever you have a chance. At the Grocery store, at Target, at work, at the Bank, really anywhere there is a random car.
I used one bag of Tootsie Pops and taped them to a card and placed either on their windshield or on their door handle.
Anytime you are in a parking lot you can add one to a car. Just imagine, having the ability to make someone’s day a little better. It’s worth it right?! Of course it is.
I passed these out on Sunday when I was in an outlet mall. It was the perfect place to pass them out since there was hundreds of cars. There were a lot of people getting in and out of cars so I really got to work on my Ninja skills which are still clearly lacking, but getting better! 😉 For a blank template of the Be The Change cards click here.
I also want to share with you an Instagram account I follow @ariellecaputo she is another positive person who does Random Acts of Kindness. Her website and blog is D.E.A.P . – Dream Actively, Endlessly Pursue and she put a call out to send some cards to Logan Pearsons who is an Autistic boy who is turning 12 on February 24th and is currently dealing with bullies. She is trying to get some birthday cards sent his way so please let me know if you want to send him a card and I will send you his address. He is located in Massachusetts.
Are you considering doing your own Act of Kindness? If not, what is stopping you? Grab a button if you would like to spread the word. The change that we seek in others has to first come from within. This year I hope you decide to Be the Change You Seek.
I love this idea!! What a nice easy way to brighten someone’s day!
Thank you. I was simple to do and can make a big impact!
Oooh that’s a good idea! I hope people enjoyed their treat!
Me too. It is so funny walking through the parking lot trying not to get caught.
Melissa @ Loving Life Moore says
I absolutely love this. I swear it’s little things like this that make all the difference 🙂
Thank you. Yes, sometimes the littlest thing can turn around someone’s day!
Kate @ Another Clean Slate says
Look at you just making people’s days left and right 🙂
I am doing what I can, I can only hope it brightens someone’s day!
kathy@vodka and soda says
every time i read your post about this, i want to reach into the screen and hug you!!!
Thank you so much! Your support has meant the world to me!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
Great idea! That would make me smile for sure.
Thank you. It was fun doing it and I had another bag that I may just leave in my car to do randomly as well!
this is so sweet!!!!!
Thank you. It was really fun and easy to do!
What a cool idea! This would totally make my day and inspire me if I came across this on my car
Thank you! Hope it encouraged more people to find the little things in life worth smiling about daily!
Oh wow, thank you for being such an inspiration! This is the opposite of what I’ve been doing lately (staying curled up into myself, only going out for work, not putting enough of my energy out into the world), so of course, now is the perfect time to read this!
Glad you read it just in time! There is a chance everyday to make a difference. Big or small you can do something to help someone have a better day. Even if it is just a smile or holding the door open for someone!
Love it! Another cute idea!!!! 😀 I would love to come out to my car and find this!
Thank you! I hope it made them smile!
Once again, you are amazing! These posts always make me so happy. I think it’s the best thing in the world to make someone’s day a little brighter. Some of those shoppers at the outlet mall could have been having a rough day or week and that note could have been just what they needed! I’m going to do this.
Thank you. It doesn’t take much and can totally change someone’s day. So glad you are going to do it.
You absolutely made someone’s day with those Tootsie Pops!!
I really hope so! I know it would make mine.

The photoaday I’m participating in this month has RAOK as the prompt for one of their days, so this is a great idea!
Oh then it is perfect timing! Would love to see what you end up doing!

Kerry what you’re doing here is absolutely beautiful. I’m sure you’re inspiring so many people along the way, and the affects of that are trifold. If you brighten someones day then they will treat someone a little kinder, and I hope that it just keeps rippling and rippling. The world needs more beautiful hearts like yours <3
Thank you so much! I really hope that it does catch on and remind people they can make a difference in someone’s day. Best compliment! Thank you again.
i know that people are coming to your blog and getting inspired. it makes me so happy!
Thank you. I hope so. I want others to get inspired to give back.
You are so good at coming up with these! I also love the fun tape you’re using!
Thank you! It is actually duct tape that I got as part of an Influenster VoxBox. It really adds a pop of color.
Such a sweet idea! Love this!
Thank you. it was so fun to do!
I love the tootsie roll idea! That’s awesome.
Thank you. It was so quick and easy too! Perfect to leave in your car and pass out whenever the opportunity arises!
Detroit Duchess says
These are so cute! What a great idea! I can’t wait to try them.
Thank you. So glad you are going to try it.
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
How cute! Good for you, that’s super sweet.
Thank you. It was fun!
once again, you are freakin’ amazing!! love this!
Thank you. It was so easy!
Hey from Arts & Crackers! I love this! So often we think paying it forward has to be something expensive but even something very small and thoughtful can bring a smile to someone’s face and turn their day around 🙂
Thank you. Yes, it doesn’t have to cost a lot to give back. It can just be holding the door open, or having a cup of tea or coffee and just listening. Giving your time can make a difference too.
You are so cute! Great job, girl!
Thank you. It was a lot of fun. Running around the parking lot trying not to get caught. Haha! Just hoping it put a smile on someone’s face.
Michelle @ 3cheaprunners says
Love this idea…I am all about “quiet” acts of kindness!
Thank you. Yes it is fun just walking away and letting them find it.
Thanks for posting this. I’ve been trying to put together a local group as well as an online group to do this. It’s great now that my kids are also old enough and interested in doing RAK’s. I plan on brainstorming things I can do monthly, at least. Found you on SitsShareFest. 🙂
That is great you are starting your own and that the kids want to be involved too. There are so many different ways to give back. Thank you so much for visiting!
Marcia @ Blogitudes says
I found you on SITS Sharefest as well – and am so glad I did! Your random act of kindness idea is awesome and is something that can be done so easily, yet can have such an impact on others. I love it and I’ll definitely be stopping back to get more random kindness act ideas from you! Thank you much!
Thank you so much! Yes, there are just so many ways to give back and I am loving sharing it in the hopes that others will join in.
Anita Hunt says
Hi Kerry, I found you through the SITS sharefest. I love your act of kindness idea. Thanks so much for the inspiration.
Thank you so much! I love being able to give back. Glad to inspire, hope it leads you to do some of random acts too.
Tabitha Fletcher says
Aw…I love this. What a cute way to make someone’s day!! I used to have it in my grocery budget to give a $10 gift card to the person behind me. I know it made my day far brighter than it ever helped them, but it was something. Thanks for sharing. I found you on SITS linky. -Tabitha
Thank you. That is a great way to give back too. It really can be such a small thing but make a big difference in someone’s day.
I found you from Kate @anothercleanslate. And I think I love you a little. I might just try this.
Why thank you. I love that you loved it. Would love to know if you do one.
Nicole Mildren says
Found this from SITs Link UP!!! love love this idea, very inspiring way to pay it forward!! xoxo Nicole
Thank you so much!! I love being able to give back, small or large acts can really make a difference.
Lina (@ScratchThatBlog) says
Love your cute idea for paying it forward. Very simple and i’m sure brightened up someones day!
Thank you! Yes, it was simple and easy to do, but can really brighten someone’s day.
I love this!! I love to do Random Acts of Kindness. This year, in addition to it, my best friend and I are using the Do Good Bus’s #dogood52ways challenge! I purchased their holiday jar filled with 52 slips of paper with Random Acts of Kindness on them. I am documenting it on my blog on Thursdays. I love the idea for the jar because I think it’s a great opportunity for kids to learn what types of random acts of kindness there are in the world. Keep up the good work at being the change!!! (p.s. I found you from Kate @ Another Clean Slate).
Thank you! That sounds like a really great way to get ideas for the acts. Love that you are getting your kids involved.
Ah..thanks for this idea! And sharing can be a very simple act of kindness too. 🙂 Found u on SITS.
Thank you very much! Yes, small acts can make a huge difference too!
