Random Acts of Kindness

"Do your little bits of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world."
-Desmond Tutu

Our biggest community effort has been to start and sustain a “Random Acts of Kindness” movement in Beverly and the surrounding communities every February.  We are a community that values and practices kindness, and with the #kindnessinbeverly, we’d like for the world to know that about our wonderful neighborhood.

Why kindness?  According to David Hamilton, PhD, here are some of the wonderful benefits:

We see this as being a win-win-win:  good for the recipient, good for the giver, and good for the entire community!

During Random Acts of Kindness month, we encourage people to perpetuate anonymous, unexpected acts of kindness for strangers and loved ones, asking only that recipients “pay it forward” if they choose.  We provide cards that people can give with their acts of kindness, and encourage people to use social media to document acts of kindness with the tag #kindnessinbeverly.

In past years, we have witnessed beautiful acts of kindness:

In February, look for our signs and Random Acts of Kindness card at local businesses.  Or, any time of year, call us at 773-310-3488 and request a sign for your workplace, church, school and/or cards to get you started spreading your acts of kindness and joy!  Thank you for joining the challenge and joining the fun!

Past Kindness Projects

Starting in 2014, Beverly Therapists made an ongoing commitment to spread kindness in our community.

We have hosted a “blessing bags” drive, and delivered over 100 bags of necessities and comfort items to benefit homeless individuals in collaboration with St. Sabina’s annual outreach to the homeless.

We have collected and gifted Valentine’s themed presents and cards to the residents of Belhaven Nursing home.

We have hosted numerous community events and request donations for our local domestic violence agency, A New Direction.  Over the 2015 holiday season, we collected gift cards for A New Direction to give to individuals in need.

We braved sub-zero temperatures on the day of the 2014 St. Patrick’s Day parade to collect donation for Beverly Art Center’s fund to pay down their mortgage.

We are wholeheartedly committed to kindness and our community.  Connect with us on Beverly Therapists Facebook page to be part of the adventure…
