There is still plenty of time to celebrate accordingly and do some random acts of kindness.

RandomActsofKindness.org is even hosting a coloring contest! Although, entries have to be in by today (February 17)! Five random winners will be selected to receive a Random Acts of Kindness Day poster, lapel pin, a 2022 Kindness Calendar, along with a Make Kindness the Norm sweatshirt, water bottle, and baseball hat. The whole prize package is valued at over $100!

Some of the suggestions for random acts of kindness include:

  • Give a gift card
  • Be a kid again- remember something that made you truly happy or proud as a kid and do that thing again
  • Write an actual letter with a stamp and everything!
  • Reach out to someone you haven't touched base with in a while. This time it can be via text, e-mail, or put pen to paper.
  • Donate to a favorite charity
  • Give a compliment to a stranger
  • Give someone a thumbs up
  • Give a compliment to someone you know
  • Plant a tree
  • Let someone in front of you in line
  • Put money in parking meters
  • Leave coupons in the grocery store
  • Leave a positive comment on social media
  • Put carts left in the parking lot in the cart corral
  • Smile!

Even though I'm a couple of days behind, there is still time to make good on my random acts of kindness! And obviously, you can keep the acts of kindness going year-round!

See Some of Sioux Falls' Beautiful Murals [PHOTOS]

I was in Canton, SD, and I happened upon a new mural.

It was really cool and that got me thinking that I know of a few murals in Sioux Falls, but I bet there's more than I realize. So, I put it out on social media for the people of Sioux Falls to tell me where all the murals are!

A few of them I had never seen, or never even been to that part of town, and a few of them, I drive by all the time and never noticed!

I know a few businesses have murals inside their establishments, but I decided to keep it to murals that are totally open for the public to see. No need to be 21!

So, here we go! Let's check out some of Sioux Falls' murals.
Did I miss one? Let me know!
