Random Acts of Kindness Week

January 2013

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation®, an internationally recognized non-profit organization, has officially designated February 11-17 as National Random Acts of Kindness Week, a week designated to raise awareness about kindness and to celebrate the value of being kind to one another.

By nature, nurses practice random acts of kindness on a regular basis and know that even the smallest act of generosity can go a long way. During National Random Acts of Kindness Week, we are inviting our readers to perform at least one random act of kindness for patients, colleagues, friends and/or family, and to share your selfless act with us on the Nursing Notes by Johnson & Johnson Facebook Page and on Twitter @JNJNursingNotes. We will pick the most inspirational ones to include in the February issue of Nursing Notes!
