National Grandparents’ Day is September 11th

National Grandparents’ Day is held each year on September 11th and it’s a day to celebrate the grandparents you have that make your life so full. They are special people who are there to spoil you but also teach you a lot so this is the time to honor them. One of the best offers we have right now is 15% off on national deliveries throughout the U.S., which is great seeing that you may not necessarily be in the same part of the country as your grandparents.

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 [...]
