I have a cousin who was in the military, and served for the country for years. I don’t know what rank she is now, but I really appreciate what my cousin has done for this country. We used to spend a lot of time together when I was younger, but now she lives many states away from me. So what I think would be a great idea is to send her something completely unexpected in the mail.
I think everyone deserves to be thanked and appreciated for the hard work they put into whatever it is they do. Sometimes though, people don’t realize how much they’re appreciated. So giving out kindness gifts is a great way to make sure they know. I got my cousin a little card that says how much I appreciate her service to the country.
While I can’t physically see her reaction to the card, I’m certain it will make her face light up with a smile. I don’t know if she’s ever gotten something like this before, but I think things like this are important to send to people. Even something as simple as a kindness card can really brighten up someone’s day for the better.
Especially during this time of year we find ourselves a bit more charitable and friendly. If we can keep that feeling throughout the whole year just imagine the positive change we could make. My daughter came home the other day with this amazing story that I thought I would share with you:
“The other day I decided to treat myself to an afternoon snack and I went to Baskin Robbins for a scoop of my favorite ice cream. I remember counting out my change in my car to make sure that I had enough money and found that I just barely had enough. When I went up to the counter to order my ice cream the employee informed me that the person who had just left had actually paid for my scoop of ice cream – for no reason but to be nice and pay it forward. I was thrilled and it made me feel so happy that I decided to pay for the person behind me. As I was completing my transaction, the cashier told me that everyone that came in during the last two hours had done the same thing and passed their kindness forward to the next guest. I felt so happy to have been able to participate in this wonderful experience. It was only a few dollars but ended up touching several dozen people and brightening their day.”
My daughter’s story touched me and again made me realize that even a small gesture can really turn your day around and remind you of the kindness in the world. The pay it forward challenge is a great idea because it makes everyone’s day a little bit better and leaves a smile of everyone’s face.
The next time you are in the drive through or in line at Starbucks, think about this little story and consider paying it forward. The gesture might just come back to bless your day as well. Also consider our Whisper of Kindness Cards if you would like to show your appreciation, gratitude or just happiness to another person. These kindness gifts will warm your heart and help to brighten the day of those who receive them. Pay it forward everyday!
We all have experienced it at least once. That day when everything seems to go wrong. When your mood is about as dark as a winter’s gloomiest day. But as you move about your day, someone, possibly even a stranger, gives you a compliment or takes the time to offer you a genuine smile and all of a sudden the world seems a bit brighter. It doesn’t take much, even a whisper can change your whole outlook. This is the whole philosophy behind our Whisper of Kindness Cards. These little cards go a long way to spread a little kindness or a smile that may be the ripple that begins a Kindness Revolution!
Our original set includes 20 cards (two of each design). Each design is created with the focus on spreading a little sunshine into someone’s life. Whether you want to spread some happiness to your waitress who was especially attentive; your doctor who just went out of his/her way to treat you as if you were his/her only patient; the veteran who you would like to thank for his sacrifice and service – these cards are a simple way to start a chain reaction of kindness.
We are pleased to introduce our latest collection of Whisper of Kindness cards! This add-on set includes 10 cards (two of each design) and features dynamic and colorful designs and meaningful quotes or sayings. It is a great addition to the original pack of 20 cards. We look forward to adding new packs of cards every few months!
These little interactions often have a more profound impact on your life and others than one might think. I am a firm believer in letting your appreciation of others be heard. That is why we sell these Whisper of Kindness cards, which are a perfect way to let someone you know or even a complete stranger know how much you appreciate them. There is no such thing as showing too much appreciation for someone who has brightened your day. Remember even a whisper can turn someone’s day around.
My daughter has always been the type of person who strives to help those around her. She knows the right words to say to someone in distress and how to bring a smile to someone in need. Once, when she was very little, she got in a fight with her older brother. I cannot for the life of me remember the specifics of what the fight was about, but I do know it had something to do with her encroaching on his ‘Lego® territory.’ Kids can be funny in their ruthlessness towards others for such minor quarrels.
However, afterwards my daughter, the caring person that she was, had felt so bad about fighting with her brother that she decided to give her treasured stuffed toy, a soft baby doll, to her brother. To this day, my son still recalls this kind and profound gesture made by his young sister. It is one of those moments in their young lives that cemented the caring and loving relationship they share to this day.

While getting lunch the other day at California’s staple burger chain, In-N-Out, I felt the sudden urge to brighten a complete stranger’s day. While waiting in the drive-thru I noticed the car behind mine was full of children bouncing around after a long day at school with their mother behind the steering wheel. I could relate to that image and could see the fatigue in the mother’s face. I then had the amazing idea to spread a little bit of kindness in order to brighten their day. I decided I would pay for their meal. The surprise and gratitude on the mother’s face was priceless. She waved ‘thank you’ to me and actually ended up paying for the car behind her. I was ecstatic that this small act of kindness put a smile on her face and led to a chain reaction of kindness. I cannot confirm that this chain continued past that, but I can only hope. Whisper of Kindness Cards are a great way to also show your commitment to brightening the days of others and helping to spread kindness whenever and wherever possible.
