World Kindness Day
On November 13, people around the world will commit random acts of kindness!
The World Kindness Movement has been growing quickly since 1996 when it was born out of a series of international conferences held in Japan.
Each participating country has formed its own national kindness organization. The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, USA offers a website full of school and community resources: "Activity ideas, lesson plans, project plans, teacher's guide, project planning guide, publicity guide and workplace resources."

In the fast paced world of business, it is easy to forget to say a sincere Thank You.
Use these ideas to help you in the workplace and in your personal life.
Say Thank You in a Different Language.
Danish - Tak French - Merci German - Danke
Japanese - Arigato Portuguese - Obrigado
Create a Short List. Write down the things you are thankful for today, this week or this month.
Eye Contact. Look at the person when you say thank you instead of as a casual passing.
Elaborate. Be specific as to why you are thanking the person. This will make it more meaningful and personal to the individual. Make it more powerful by stating this in front of others like in a meeting or luncheon.
Email. Use the power of technology to say thank you. This will give you time to think of what you want to say before you send it.
Hand Out Certificates. A certificate is a nice way to show a person they are appreciated. It does not have to be elaborate; remember, it is the thought that counts.
Cheer up with Flowers. A small bouquet or a single flower with an attached note is a nice way to be reminded of your value.
Value of Food. Who doesn't love food? A favorite snack, candy bar, homemade cookie, muffin or fruit is a nice way to thank someone for their efforts.
