The Kindness Project




Random acts of kindness...you hear more about them about this time of year...Valentine's Day.  But this was such a delightful idea I thought I'd share.  

People are always asking me..."after I have created 50 of these Zentangles...what shall I do with them?"
Well, I have a lot of ideas, of course, but here is a new one.  

Make little "Random Acts of Kindness Tiny Books".
And just leave them places for people to find.  
Inside you can put some nice thought.

I have decided to add on the cover..."this is a surprise gift for you" so people know that it is not something lost...but rather something they are supposed to find and keep or pass on.  

If you go to http://tangledkindnessproject.blogspot.com you can find out more about how this started.  And get some ideas of some sayings to put inside yours.  Although you may have a poem or something you have written or found you like better.  

I like to keep mine anonymous.  But some people put their email inside and so then they get feedback from folks who find it.  You'll see such a response on the blog site.  The blog site founders suggest all kinds of places to leave them...from on the bus, at a cemetery, on the school secretary's desk, to a grocery store shelf, in a hospital at the nurses station, in a doctor's office...anywhere.  Just a tiny bit of kindness scattered about with your lovely piece of art work.  I used just drawing paper for the cover and on some I put colorful tape for the binding but just scotch tape will work. I tuck 3 or 4 in my purse in a zip lock bag.   

Where will you leave your Zentangle?
