I get it now. As an adult I see beyond my own immediate wants and needs. Even the smallest of gestures mean a lot to me. An email, text or phone call to see how I am feeling when you know I have been ill - that brightens my day. Treating me to my favorite coffee or frozen yogurt - it's a treat I am so appreciate of. My husband letting me sleep in (even if for a few more minutes) on the weekend when he isn't working - that's priceless to a tired mama.
I have been trying to show my girls that doing little things for others is actually a really big deal. Often those little gestures like picking up someone's dropped pencil/book/paper, holding the door open for the person behind you, helping mommy set the table or tidy the house and smiling and saying good morning to your friends and teachers at school can really brighten someone's day just when they need it most. In other words, little things can mean just as much or even more than big gifts.
Kleenex knows this and they are letting us show we care and helping us put a smile on someone's face with their Kleenex Care Packs. Recently, we shared how we brightened a sick friend's day by giving her a Kleenex Care Pack when she needed a little pick me up. It was a small gesture, provided at just the right moment, that meant so much to her and we felt so good being able to do it.
How do you inspire your children to care about and think of others? How about letting them send out a Kleenex Care Pack? It's as easy as 1-2-3!
1. Purchase a specially marked box or bundle of Kleenex brand tissues.
2. Find the special code on the package & enter it online.
3. Then, simply share the care by sending a Kleenex Care Pack.
