Being kind to another person can often take a concerted effort. When life is full of your own stresses and strains it can take a lot to sprinkle joy into someone else’s life. But, notice the effect it has when you do take the time to open a door for someone, give way to someone when you’re driving, stopping to let a person or people cross the road and smiling. Smiling is often the best way to show someone you care. A silent exchange that can lift another human soul when they need it most.
Today is ‘Random Acts of Kindness Day’. So many wonderful posts have been shared on social media and it is a joy to see each one.
We, at The Red Box Project, are fortunate. We see the kindness of others, in action, on numerous occasions, every single day. The generosity and silent acts of giving are inspiring and it is that which keeps us motivated and empowered to keep delivering support to as many educational settings across the UK and overseas.
We also see the other side. The need for your continued support is ever growing. Thank you so much for taking those moments to write a kind word, make journeys to your local donation drop off points and for supporting the legal campaign we are involved in. Access to period products should not be reliant on the kindness of strangers but until change comes we are so grateful to each and every one of you. Together we are stronger!
