Friendly Friday: The Kinding Mission

Have you heard about this?  So there's this brand called KIND--

(From their website):
KIND is a brand of all natural whole nut and fruit bars made from ingredients you can see and pronounce and it's also a movement that gives new purpose to snacking.
 At KIND we do things a bit differently.
 KIND was founded on the principle of holistic kindness, and we pride ourselves on creating new paths that avoid false compromises. Instead of "Or" we say "And". We choose healthy and tasty, convenient and wholesome, economically sustainable and socially impactful.
 And every month, on the first Tuesday, they have what's called a Kinding Mission--the next one is November 1, which is next Tuesday.  The Kinding Mission is a challenge to carry out a kind act.  Sound familiar?  That's what our own AllisonO has been challenging her friends and readers (who are friends she just hasn't met yet) to do.

For example, in September the Kinding Mission was to give a book, newspaper or magazine to someone else to enjoy, and in October the Kinding Mission was to send a thoughtful note or email to a woman who had impacted his or her life.

Hello, Friendly Fridayers!  Are you paying attention?  They are telling you what to do!  So easy!  No excuses!  You can check out the archives for other ideas.

The best part?  If enough people accept the mission, the KIND team facilitates a BIG kind act for a group of people who really need it.

Ready to accept your mission?  OK, November's Kinding Mission is this:
On KIND Tuesday, November 1st (or ANY time before midnight on November 1st), we invite you to do ANY act of kindness for ANYONE of your choosing. Whether it's opening the door for someone else or buying a cup of coffee for the person in line behind you, every act of kindness makes a difference.
Me?  I'm busy making a couple of apple pies to take to our new neighbors.

So how about it, friends?  Are you ready to do the KIND thing?  If you blog about it, please hop on over to O My Family and link up to encourage others in performing unexpected acts of kindness.
