|In our increasingly global world, sometimes it feels more difficult than ever to make a positive difference in the lives of others. But often, small gestures can make someone’s day, or forge that human connection that we all need. Going the extra mile for another can mean giving a cheerful note to a sad friend or coworker, letting another driver have their parking space, thanking people who don’t normally get recognition, bringing hot chocolate to a favorite teacher or bus driver, or giving flowers to a passerby.
Random Acts of Kindness Week is a chance to remember that these small actions can make a big difference. That is why I will be re-introducing a resolution designating the week of February 16 through 23, 2020, as Random Acts of Kindness Week in Pennsylvania. In 1995, the first-year event was celebrated in nearly every state with a heavy focus on Pennsylvania schools and residents. In fact, according to the Random Acts of Kindness Week Foundation – organizers of this grassroots event – Pennsylvania helped start this new Kindness Revolution that’s sweeping the country.
It is my hope that this resolution will encourage Pennsylvanians of all walks of life to come together and give friends and neighbors a helping hand. Please join me in performing a random act of kindness during this week and every week.
