Day 5, BIG THANK YOU. #30daysofkind @properpostuk ๐Ÿ’• Today is the day to say thanks to people that have made difference in your life. So I would like to say thank you to @mumstheword.online Laura and Natalie for bringing together like minded Mums together locally. This has been a great way to meet other mums that are bloggers because for a while I was feeling like it was “table for one” situation and also to meet so many other inspirational mums that are really doing great things. So keep up the good work and thank you ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹.

Day 5 is here and that went oh so fast. The end of the week and end of the challenge. It’s been fantastic to see so much kindness and to see how many people have gotten involved.
๐ŸŒŸToday we will end our last day with the simplest act of kindness of them all. Saying a simple thank you. Not just those you speak to usually throughout your day but take the time to make a point of thanking others.
๐ŸŒŸAs for our thank yous we want to thank everyone who has taken part in this mini challenge and embraced it in whatever way. These inter webs are full of lovely kind people all too often we hear the bad stuff, the bullying and the hate. These 5 days have showed the good and the kind.
๐ŸŒŸOur full 30 day challenge is all planned and set and ready to go starting 2.1.2018 just when we all need cheering up.
๐ŸŒŸWe’ll have a downloadable planner so you can see what the tasks are in advance and plan for them of just join in on the go. Dipping in and out is fine there’s no pressure in Kindness just join in with what you can.

My parents are great, always there and will do anything to help out. There are regular knocks on the door with delivery of home grown veg, various kids items that I have left at their house and emergency supplies when needed. So just to say a big thank you on Day 4 of kindness challenge @properpostuk #30daysofkind #KINDCOMMENTS

Day 4 already and our mini challenge is nearly over. The kindness that’s been spread has wowed us. All the pictures and posts have been AMAZING and this is only a mini warm up challenge before the big one starts in 2.1.18.
๐ŸŒŸToday’s challenge focuses on something you know we love - letter writing and post. ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’Œ.
๐ŸŒŸ Everyone loves to be reminded that they’re special so write a post, an email or maybe even a letter to someone special today and tell them what you most admire about them.
๐ŸŒŸpost it on Instagram or Facebook and let the world know but if you’d rather be more private a letter would be perfect.
๐ŸŒŸBut don’t worry if you can’t get to the post office or don’t have any letter writing bits to hand even an email will do. The focus here is just to big up someone special how you do it isn’t the important part but what you write is.
๐ŸŒŸTag is in the post @properpostuk or take a pic and show us and remember the #30daysofkind hashtag which we’re trying to get nice and full up and friendly for when new people join us in January.
๐ŸŒŸBy using that hashtag on your post anyone new (or already with us) will see it and be totally inspired to join in too.
๐ŸŒŸI’m going to write to/about a few people today. They are people I see all the time but that’s why I’ll write because I want to take my time and think and write all that I think is special about them. Saying nice things is obviously amazing but a letter is a legacy you can get it out and read it again and again.

Day 3 is here ๐Ÿ’• and it comes with a gift from us to help you carry out the task.
๐ŸŒŸ Today use our Little Notes of Kindness printable to spread some kindness. Hide them as a surprise for loved ones or leave them out and about for random strangers to find.
๐ŸŒŸJust click the link in our bio, print them out in a variety of colours, add your own words and then leave them out to spread kindness everywhere you go. Like a really kind snail with a glittery trail of kindness ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.
๐ŸŒŸThese gorgeous little notes were designed for us back in September for #kindcomments Week by @apartment406designs
๐ŸŒŸIf you’re not near a printer or can’t download them don’t worry any note will do. You could use use Post it’s, notepaper, postcards of just plain old scraps of paper. It’s what you write that’s important not what it looks like.
๐ŸŒŸTake a pic of your note where you leave it and use the hashtag #30daysofkind and tag @properpostuk so we can share them with everyone too.
๐ŸŒŸCan’t wait to see the kindness snowball today with all these little notes.

Day 2 is #kindcomments this one is super easy and can all be done online. When we planned these tasks we wanted to make sure they were things that were achievable and realistic. That way we knew you’d see instant results and realise how easy it can be to slip a bit more Kindness into every day without too much disruption.
๐ŸŒŸSo today’s challenge task is IG based and you’re going to be finding other kind minded Instagrammers to get kind with.
๐ŸŒŸ The kind comments hashtags has over 30,000 posts and is full of kind people from the kindness week held back in September. Search the hashtag #Kindcomments and comment on a random person’s post from there with something kind. Tag us too so we can see it @properpostuk
๐ŸŒŸYesterday was amazing seeing all the posts and world kindness day being celebrated. Today we’re hoping to see lots more love lovely stories and read the posts you tag us in. Screenshot what you write, send us the pic and we’ll choose a winner to send a special prize too.
