The world is about to get a whole lot kinder because today is the first day of the 100 Acts of Kindness Project! Starting today we’re challenging you (your kids, your class, your friends, your group) to complete 100 acts of kindness by Valentine’s Day. And we’re kicking things off with a secret kindness challenge!
Kids love to do secret acts of kindness–the stealthy do-good nature of these types of kindness acts is very superhero-ish and very appealing. We always say we feel like kindness ninjas when we try to do something like leave change on a vending machine before anyone sees us!
Secret Act of Kindness Challenge
Our Week #1 Kindness Challenge is to surprise a stranger with kindness!
Our secret act of kindness was to hide money in the Dollar Store for strangers to find.
We printed a bunch of the free printable RAK’d cards and stapled them to bags filled with a dollar and a dime.
Then with all our supplies ready we headed to our local dollar store to surprise some strangers! The kids decided to hide them in the toy section, the candy section and the Valentine’s Day section.
The store was busy when we got there but we were still able to hide them all without anyone noticing. I was even able to snap some quick photos. As we were leaving we heard someone squeal that she had found one–such fun for us to hear!

I know not everyone may be in the place in life where they have dollars to hide for strangers. If that is your case right now don’t forget about the power of a penny!
That’s right. All you really need to complete this week’s challenge is a penny. Check out our easiest act of kindness ever for how to make someone’s day with something so simple.
