We are kicking off our HN9 Random Acts of Kindness drive so that everyone at HN9, and all the guests who join us, can contribute to South Africa.
There are often people who have even less than we do, and there’s no better way to start a year than by giving back.We have a box in the HN9 studio where cast, crew and guests will be bringing in unwanted items to donate!
The drive will be running from today, the 4th of January, until February the 14th.
If you want to contribute in your own way, here are three easy ways to give back to your community:
Volunteer at a local organistion:
You don't need to give money or stuff to be charitable. Why not give back of your time? Go to your local animal shelter or soup kitchens, many of these organisations are open to volunteers, and they need the additional hands. They will appreciate the time and effort that you put in!
Clean up your hood:
Do you have a favorite park that you like to frequent? While you enjoy playing on the swings or strolling on the beach, why not pick up any litter you happen to find? Carry a couple of spare trash bags and spend 15-20 minutes during your outing picking up trash that you see. Not only are you helping to keep your favorite spots clean, but you just might encourage other people to do the same!
Everyone needs a confidence boost once in a while . Anonymously leave a note with an inspirational quote or compliment on someone's windshield or doorstep in your neighborhood. You may never know how much it means to someone. Say good morning, hold doors open, or offer to carry someone's heavy bags while holiday shopping. A little kindness goes a long way and it's so easy to offer! Remember, a smile costs nothing.
Let us know how you give back to your community!
