Random Acts of Kindness – August 1st to 31st 💖

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From paying it forward in line at a cafe to giving flowers to a friend ‘just because’ - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: Buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food pantry, help someone with a broken down car or flat tire, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

This month also coincides with World Humanitarian Day on August 19th and Random Acts of Kindness Day (New Zealand) which is on September 1st.

Let us know how you’re spreading kindness in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:

Looking for interested and committed people to join an entrepreneurial team

Amy from St Heliers

Just wanted to share a little and see who might be in the same place I am. There is a point in your life when enough is enough and you have to try something new. Maybe this relates to your health, your finances, self care or you've just had enough. That is where I am at and I'm looking to start a team who is looking to make a difference in their health, lifestyle and/or income.

This is not a corny ad, and it does involve some hard work and a bit of investment unless you just want to go Christmas shopping (I can totally help with that). It is network marketing related (not a pyramid scheme or any such scary stuff) so if you're not into that I get it, or if you just want to look at some great products for yourself and family I'm totally fine with that also. You'll also have a chance to learn to make some fun stuff :)

I don't want to do things the slow way so commitment is key and you have to like people :) at least a little.

If you're interested send me a private message with a way to contact you and the best time to do so.

If you aren't then just read on to other posts, I'm just trying to reach out. (Remember your name is on the comments, so if they're rude everyone knows who wrote it.)
