Ninety-five percent of Americans think we have a civility problem. NINETY-FIVE PERCENT. Based on current census data, that’s more than 300 million people who think the people they interact with on a daily basis are rude, uncaring + lack common courtesy.
We’d like to change that.
Today is International Pay It Forward Day. [Yup! An entire day dedicated to being kind.] But here at CHAARG, we don’t think one day is enough. We are challenging you to use today as the start to engaging in a daily random act of kindness.
These acts of kindness don’t need to cost money + they don’t need to take up a ton of your time. From smiling to a stranger to sending a random, encouraging text, you have the ability to turn someone’s day around – whether you realize it or not. Positivity + kindness are two of the most powerful forces we have at our disposal + it’s about time we all worked to use them.
We are sharin’ with you 15 ways to pay it forward today… + every day! #SpreadTheSunshine

You may just start a trend.
14] LEAVE A SMALL NOTE OR GIFT FOR THE JANITORS IN YOUR DORM, GYM OR WORKPLACE.
