Whether you have a valentine or not, Valentine’s Day can become a day to give happiness to others.
Every Valentine’s Day my friends and I make valentines , go to a public place, and hand out cards to everyone we see. This is such an amazing thing, every year I meet so many people just by handing them a card. The smile that each person gave back after receiving a card left my friends and I feeling so inspired.
Some Ideas to get you started
- Make custom valentines and stick them to yourself as my friend and I did in the picture above. You can become a walking valentine — Hand out the cards!
- Walk around with a poster saying “Free Valentines” — You will be surprised how many people will want one!
- Make valentine themed cookies and hand them out.
The point is to get creative and fun with it. You do not have to buy valentines–in fact the ones I handed out were post-it notes cut out as hearts, it doesn’t matter what each card is made of, it’s the kindness behind the card.
“For it is in giving that we recive.” — St. Francis of Assisi
The power of a small act of kindness makes a huge impact in others lives. You never know how the people you encounter during your day were feeling a few moments before and how much your gesture can change someones day for the better.
Go take a moment out of your life to make a difference in someone else’s. This new spin on a holiday will leave you feeling more inspired than ever. Share your ideas of creative ways to spend Valentine’s Day in the comments!
