February 17—Random Acts of Kindness Day: A Simple Good Deed Can Go a Long Way

February 17—Random Acts of Kindness Day is the best time to make someone’s day! In fact, this unofficial holiday reminds us that even a single random act of kindness can have rippling effects that could change the world!

On this day, Kids Car Donations encourages you to be a ray of hope in the lives of the people around you.

Random acts of kindness done to a friend, co-worker, family member, or a complete stranger will never go to waste. Kindness validates a person’s value, making them feel that they are noticed and valued. For someone who feels like giving up on life, a simple act of kindness could be their saving grace.

 

Random Acts of Kindness You Can Do

On February 17—Random Acts of Kindness Day, we want you to infect the people around you with the kindness bug. Check out this list of things that you can do to show them that you care:

  • Thank at least 5 people for anything that they’ve done for you.
  • Bake something and share it with your friends or co-workers.
  • Be a dear and offer to carry a senior’s grocery bags to their car.
  • Compliment at least 5 people.
  • Prepare a meal for your parents.

Helping Kids on Random Acts of Kindness Day

What’s awesome about kindness is that you can do it on a much larger scale! If you decide to turn over any type of unwanted vehicle regardless of its age or condition to Kids Car Donations, you’ll touch the lives of needy children and teens in your community. The proceeds from the auction sale of your vehicle will go to our nonprofit partners that are dedicated to delivering critical services for the benefit of young girls and boys who are seriously ill, victims of abuse, and homeless.

The services our IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit partners provide include free medical treatment, free educational and social service resources, emotional well-being projects, and permanent shelters and psychological services for homeless children.

You will also personally benefit from your vehicle donation since this will entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction based on your vehicle’s selling price.

We’ve made our donation process highly convenient for our donors. In fact, getting in touch with us is the only thing you need to do. Our team will tow away your vehicle for free and handle all the required paperwork.
