40 Acts of Kindness (Day 20)

Today we’re championing local causes. And if we don’t do it, who will? The only people who’ll raise a banner for local causes are locals, so let’s be the ones who’ll rise to that challenge. Imagine if people talked up your neighbourhood as a place where people are kind.

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.'” (Matthew 22:37–39 NIV)

Start chatting to people in your area, whether that is an isolated elderly person, your next-door neighbour or a homeless person.

Take part in a volunteer day. You can look up local causes, care homes or schools.

See if you can volunteer frequently for a local cause you love.
