I absolutely love polar bears- they are one of my favorite animals.

A Kind Note…

  Happy Kindness Wednesday! As you know Project Words Of Kindness is all about sprinkling more kindness into the world.  In honor of Valentine’s Day, which is just around the corner, I thought why not change things up and send “Kind Notes” instead of Love Notes?  A kind note comes from the heart, and is designed to put a smile on someone’s face.  Be creative and heartfelt.  Surprise someone this Valentine’s Day with a kind note. Below are the kind notes I will be passing out this Valentine’s Day.  To keep things eco-friendly, I have printed double-sided on each card.  One side has  the PWK mission statement, and the other has a little note with an inspiring kindness quote.  Each card has a different quote.     Have fun creating your kind notes! with love, xo
