25 Random Acts of Kindness

Valentine’s Day is coming up. While you might dismiss it as a Hallmark holiday, Valentine’s Day is still a great chance to show your appreciation for people who are significant in your life. This might not just be your spouse, but your mail delivery person, teacher, or even a hairdresser. Anyone who is often underappreciated will be overjoyed when you go above and beyond with one of these random acts of kindness:



  1. Leave a basket of snacks and drinks on your doorstep for your hardworking mail courier and Amazon delivery drivers. You can’t go wrong with our Organic DelishFish.
  2. Give a stranger a compliment!
  3. Fill up a bag with unneeded clothes, toys, or household items and donate it to a local shelter.
  4. Leave a tip for your coffee barista.
  5. Give a “beary” special treat to a teacher. We recommend Surf Sweets Organic Fruity Bears – they’re vegan and allergy-friendly.



  1. Call (or text) a family member or friend who you haven’t talked to in a while.
  2. Leave a nice comment on a friend’s social media post.
  3. Pack a special note or treat in your kid’s lunchbox.
