National Good Neighbor Day is September 28th

While we spend time thinking about socially conscious things and how big companies and small business owners can do more for the community, we, as individuals, can also practice small acts of kindness towards others. You never know – you might be able to make someone’s day or at the very least create a much more close knit neighborhood. September 28th is National Good Neighbor Day so it’s a day to do something for those who live around you. Some ideas include helping them with a project, bringing them a gift basket, or offering some flowers or a plant to show you are thinking of them and appreciate that you live next door to them. Of course, it’s also a good idea to think about planning a block party or get-together at your house where your neighbors can come hang out and get to know each other. When it comes to special gifts, we have you covered for National Good Neighbor Day. Here are some ideas that help you show you care for those who live around you: • Mystic Modern Cube Arrangement is a stunning floral design with dahlias, lisianthus, miniature callas, stock, roses, preserved oak leaves and more.

Be Kind to Humankind Week

The last week of August is designated at Be Kind to Humankind Week, which is a reminder to do and say positive things to the people around you. It’s celebrated on a global basis from August 25th to August 31st every year. This is the time to reflect on what you can do to make the world a better place and how you can practice kindness on a daily basis. Each day of this week has a unique theme, which provides a way to do something different related to kindness each day: • Sacrifice our wants for other’s needs Sunday • Motorist consideration Monday • Touch-a-heart Tuesday • Willing-to-lend-a-hand-Wednesday • Thoughtful Thursday • Forgive your foe Friday • Speak kind words Saturday This gives you a chance to do something special each day for others that will make them feel good and you as well. Passing this feeling around will eventually help to start imbuing the world with kindness again rather than selfishness and hatred. We also suggest that flowers make a nice gesture of kindness, especially to someone in your life who might be struggling or who is under the weather. Here are some ideas for Be Kind to [...]
