Making kindness the norm: Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day
A kinder world
There’s no denying how difficult the past couple of years have been. The time helped us realise how small acts of kindness can make a massive difference. For the year 2022 we want to try and make a difference, and make kindness contagious.
We knew with the right number of clicks and mentions, we could make kindness go viral. Working with our team, friends, business associates and social media influencers we created an opportunity for their followers to share their stories around kindness.
What they shared
As well as collecting beautiful stories of kindness from their followers, influencers were encouraged to send everyone who responded a shout. The great thing about Shouta is that you can send a Coffee shout for $5 or a fine drop for $250! The whole premise around Random Acts Of Kindness Day is that gestures can be any size - medium or nano.
So what gesture of kindness did people share during Random Acts Of Kindness Day? A Coffee shout of course! Check out some of the viral moments:
