RANDOM ACTS OF POETRY AND ART- TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20TH

Random Acts of Poetry & Art Day is an international, artistic, pay-it-forward movement. Wherever you are on this day, please join us in giving away gifts of art and poetry for all to enjoy! It’s up to you what you do. You can mail gifts, leave them for someone to find, or give them away in-person. Anyone... living in any location can participate. You don’t have to sign-up or attend an event, just do something good—be kind on February 20th!

 

ART AND POETRY GIVEAWAY IDEAS:

1. Donate books to your local public library, day care center, or school.
2. Create an art or poetry postcard and send them out to random family and friends with a special message.
3. Make handmade jewelry or pottery and leave it at a café for someone to find.
4. Are you a musician? Record a few of your original songs and give away CD’s.
5. Do you know someone who was recently in the hospital, or who is coping with a long-term illness? Send them a surprise gift of art or poetry in the mail.
6. GROUP IDEAS: If you belong to a KNITTING CIRCLE, you could knit hats and donate them to the neo-natal ward at a hospital, or donate knitted scarves and hats to a homeless shelter. If you belong to a LOCAL ARTS COUNCIL, plan a creation session, where you all get together to make things, and then give them away on February 20th.
7. Create artsy labels and attach them to pet supplies to donate to a local animal shelter.
8. Design “Kindness Matters” wrist bands or bookmarks and donate a bunch to a local school or library.
9. Donate art prints and poetry books to non-profit organizations.
10. Give away mini works of art to the hard-working people at the check-out of your post office or grocery store.
11. Leave a drawing or an inspiring quote behind at a café or coffeehouse.

Kindness spreads when we plant the seeds. What creative way will you share your art and poetry to brighten someone else’s day? Inspire kindness in others by being kind!

With Joy!
